This page doesn’t photograph all that great but if you look at the larger image by clicking on the smaller one you can see some detail better. There are three stampings of my styrofoam plate image of Guadalupe that I carved several months ago, all these stampings are in blue. And then there are three stampings in black of a rubber stamp that I have of Guadalupe. The background is tempera paint and the styrofoam plate stamps are tempera, too. Tempera is one of my favorite paints to use in art journaling. It dries matte which I like. It dries more quickly than acrylic, which I like. The paints mix well, which I like because the color range is somewhat limited. It’s non toxic and non stinky, which I like. In summation, I LIKE it. It’s inexpensive, too, which I REALLY like. Try it. My go to if I am not trying to prep a surface is white tempera which dries semi-opaque in one coat, opaque in two, much quicker than gesso and much more reasonably priced. Just about every page in my altered map journal begins with white tempera paint.
