Egg tempera is a type of medium used before oils became popular during the Renaissance. The yolk of an egg is mixed with the ground pigment and applied with a soft brush and which dried very rapidly. The term "tempera" in modern times has also been used by some manufacturers to refer to ordinary poster paint, which is a cheap form of gouache that has nothing to do with real egg tempera.
