On the best tempera paint....We went around and around on this issue last
spring, about the best consistency, best color, best whatever. I was
getting frustrated, trying several brands, and coming up short on the best
"all-around" choice. After much searching and trying diff. brands, a few of
us agreed our consensus "choice" is SAX True Color. It comes in gallon
containers also with the pumps. This is the only paint I've tried so far
that doesn't get clogged up inside the pumps...always ready to pump without
fiddling with the openings. It is VERY reasonable in price compared with
most other brands. The paint is not runny but not too thick either. The
colors are true. I had a hard time finding both a good red and a good blue
in the same brand. Sax True Color has both. It also comes in pints and
quarts. If you're lookin' to save $, get the gallons. It'll go further. I
am definitely not a salesperson for SAX...though there IS one on this
listserv...but when I find something I really like, I like to tell others
about it. Cya.............
