About tempera painting

Tempera is a painting technique that was mainly used in Italy between the 12th and 15th centuries. This technique gained particular attention around the 14th century, and was a central presence in painting along with fresco until it was later replaced by oil painting. There are several types of tempera techniques, but egg yolk tempera, which is resistant to aging and has a bright color tone, is the most representative.

I also use the egg yolk tempera technique. The base is coated with a gypsum glue solution on the board, decorations such as reliefs are added, and gold leaf is placed on top of it and colored with egg yolk tempera paint.
