Step 1: Experiment 1: Create different variations of egg tempera to determine which works best. Use these methods.
Step 2: Experiment 2: Compare each egg tempera variation with modern-day tempera paint. Paint a section with each tempera variation (stand linseed oil, refined linseed oil, egg yolk, egg white, linseed oil, modern tempera paint, and modern tempera paint mixed with each egg tempera variation and list the observations of each.
Step 3: Project: Create your own custom egg tempera color using your observations and knowledge of tempera based on your experiments. Highlight the chemical properties of the paint you created, as well as why artists would choose to use it in their work. Create an abstract painting that showcases these properties.
