Distorted Chinese Opera Mask Egg Tempera on Drywall


                                       Commercial watercolor blended with egg tempera binder . A section of 'drywall' being used as platform with no gesso undercoat. About 7-10 cotas of paint will be required. Note the satin-like red hue with tempera medium.  Acrylic gesso cannot be used with egg tempera paints- it will not bind! Use rabbit glue-based gesso!


                                                        Egg Tempera illustration on drywall foundation. No gesso undercoat.

                                                         6" x10". I cut drywall with an Exacto knife.
