Painting with a spatula

The tempera can be applied with a spatula onto card or wood. This technique is only recommended in order to achieve a crackled affect; the built-up blobs of paint crack because the outer layer dries more quickly than the layer beneath.

Splash painting

Splashing a painting with a toothbrush is an effective way of creating texture. To obtain bigger splashes you can use a round paintbrush dipped in plenty of paint which can be tapped firmly against the handle of another paintbrush or with the fingers.

Printing with sponges

Apply the tempera to different-shaped sponges directly from the bottle or from a palette with a mixture of the chosen colour. Then press the sponge onto a surface, like a stamp, to leave its imprint. Rinse the sponge out before the paint dries to remove any paint residue.

Painting with three colours

A great variety of colours can be achieved by using blue, magenta and yellow and mixing them together.

  • Washing garments in the washing machine can leave stubborn paint stains which are much more difficult to remove.
  • Never dry a paint-stained garment in the tumble dryer because it will be impossible to remove the stain afterwards.
  • Do not let it dry.
  • Pretreat the stains quickly and repeat the procedure if the stain does not disappear completely.
  • Do not rub the garment when you start to wash it.
  • Rinse the garment through with plenty of water at high pressure. It is better to work from the back of the fabric, behind the stain.
  • Wash with natural bar soap.
  • On untreated dry stains: Soak the stain in a glass containing equal parts of whole milk, peroxide and liquid soap for more than six hours.
  • Afterwards, wash with natural or liquid soap.
