Egg oil tempera Finished Color

Our ready-made egg oil tempera is the one we sell the most. In our brochure you can read about different surfaces that can be painted on and how we calculate the amount of paint needed. In general, we usually say that 1 liter of paint covers 10-12 square meters. (On plaster/lump cardboard 4-6 sq m/litre, on painted surfaces/planed wood approx. 10-15 sq m/litre). Keep in mind that this is the calculated amount for one ironing, often 2-3 ironings are required.

Most people find it convenient to just open a can and start painting, the fact that it then stands for a couple of months at least, and dries relatively quickly is appreciated by many.
It is also a prerequisite for larger construction projects to find the color interesting, and we would like to have the "big dragons" with us on a more sustainable and more ecological way of thinking for the future!
