Someone else needs to tell you about the cans., But I have used both tempera
and acrylic with pumpkins. I decided that for elementary kids, tempera is just
fine. the pumpkins start to sweat after a while regardless. ( get mushy and
wet on the bottom) Acrylic looks nice, but my kids sometimes forget to wash
their brushes well.
