And now it's time for the humorous video version of how to make egg tempera!

"St. Joseph and Jesus Devotional, Cathedrale Saint-Sauveur, Aix en Provence,"1 3/8" x 1 13/16", egg tempera on Kelmscott vellum

I'll be posting one more time on this miniature painting of a Joseph and Jesus devotional in France which I had started a while ago, after it's finishing touches are done, since I'm trying to get it ready in time for an approaching miniature show.

Two of my fellow artists have tried out egg tempera as a result of my video and tips, and with their permission, I'd like to do a special post on their work tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the humorous video version of how to make egg tempera has to be hands-down my friend and fellow artist Rob Milliken's own animation: "Making Egg Tempera Paint", so make sure to see it too, it's hilarious fun! Thanks so much, Rob, for allowing me to share it here. Rob serves on the board of the Society of Tempera Painters, and please take a moment to view his amazing egg tempera paintings here.

Cute video. And his work is incredible! I found rocks like those in Washington state. So beautiful!

Thanks Karen. This particular devotional statue was beautifully lit with it's own spotlight in the St. Savior Cathedral, and someone had rested a real palm branch on the statue.

This is absolutely a STUNNING piece. I salute you! Wonderful, wonderful. Video is fun too- but I like your demo better! :-)

Thanks Carol. Planning to send this one down to the miniature show in Houston, Texas.
