I use a little dishwashing soap in with my tempera paint. I also notice that
if I have the students use sponges to apply the paint, that it is not so
thick and hard to scrap off latter. I usually have brushes also for outline.
It helps to predraw ideas and tape on the opposite side of the window to
follow. Susan in Ohio
