Tempera cakes are handy and quick, but they are more like watercolors, (though opaque). If I had to choose between one or the other, I would vote for the liquid tempera every time. The colors are much brighter (I find the tempera cake colors to be rather dull), and much for versatile for mixing.

Subject: Liquid Tempera vs. Tempera Cakes?
Hello! Advice needed on liquid tempera vs. tempera cakes! Which is preferable? (I am still without a sink and shelving in my new art classroom, but extremely happy to have great light and no more art-on-the-cart -- the carts are parked in my classroom as temporary shelving!)Thank you, Sandy J
