Discover our collection of high-quality tempera painting panels.

Enhance Your Tempera Painting Experience

Traditionally, painters would turn to wood boards primed with a gesso chalk ground for their tempera painting endeavors. The allure lay in the highly absorbent and smooth surface, perfect for achieving the desired results. Now, we bring you Artefex Tempanels, redefining the way artists work with this time-honored medium.

Our Tempanels proudly feature the Rublev Tempera ground, a meticulously formulated vinyl ground that delivers a highly absorbent and flawlessly smooth surface. This innovative ground beautifully captures the essence of traditional painting grounds while offering a contemporary edge.

What sets Artefex Tempanels apart is the incorporation of aluminum composite panels (ACM) as the backing. This addition ensures the ultimate protection for the delicate surface, creating a perfect marriage between the ground and the panel. The result? A durable, modern canvas that preserves the time-tested qualities artists cherish.

Elevate your craft, embrace the future, and paint your masterpiece on a panel that honors the past.
