Egg tempera - the most durable technique, next to wax tempera, in which the binder of colours is organic. It can be wine, vinegar or water mixed with egg yolk (egg tempera). This technique has been known since antiquity and was most popular in the Middle Ages. Unlike oil painting, the paint dries quickly, becomes brighter when dry and it is more difficult to select and mix colours.
Indian ink - consists of carbon black combined with water. It forms a waterproof film when dried. The binding agent can be gelatin or, more commonly, shellac. It has superior lightfastness and can be used on a variety of substrates. It is used in medical applications.
