I had a student today who said she was having trouble breathing. We were
using fresh tempera from Dick Blick's. Allergies?

Subject: RE: rancid tempera ! Help!!
I have used it to paint snow sculptures outside mixing the vile brew with
water in old dertergent bottles, in this activity the smell is no trouble.
I would throw it away and I don"t throw anything away.
Tip I gather all the school's tempra in June and store it in the
refrigerator, I also ask people not to add water to the big jugs of paint,
this seems to make a huge difference.
