> I've come across some tempera (left over from last year) that
seems to have fermented and developed a horrid odor (rotting
meat?)....pleh.

A Story: When I was a young teacher in a school with few supplies
I used the blue tempera anyway. I figured the room already stank,
but the smell would go away when the art dried. WRONG! People
would walk down the hall past the pictures and comment, "Phew!
What is that awful smell!" My advice is "Pitch it!"
