Does any one know if the tempera paints used just about every where are egg based?
I always thought that is what tempera meant.

I also was curious about this. I found this definition:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tempera

I use the wikipedia site to search for what ingredients are. The paints used today are added to water, unlike the egg yolk of the past. However, it is definitely worth a phone call to the manufacturer to see if the paints have dried yolk in them.

Good thinking. I 'm not sure if I would have really thought about this one otherwise.

I spent quite a while e-mailing back and forth to one supplier. They were the last to respond.
The contact wanted discuss the ingredients with her toxicologist. I pointed out to her that I was not interested in the toxicity of her products-I was fairly certain that they were not toxic by it's normal definition. She requested mour alergists number and after that became very helpful.
She actually said if our school contacted her she would go through all of their craft supplies.
This was the company:
