RE: [teacherartexchange] best tempera paint?

I tested quite a few brands a few years ago--and still prefer Triarco for
liquid tempera--best secondary colors, best consistency of the paint, as
well. The regular tempera, NOT the washable, which I didn't care for at
all--really nasty stuff.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] best tempera paint?

Does anyone have a favorite tempera or other paint appropriate for K-5
that is excellent for color mixing exercises?  ie. makes a nice
violet?  I used to like Artista II before they changed the recipe
Thanks!  Jean
