Over the last two years I've been working with egg tempera as my primary medium.  I did some egg tempera work back in the 70's and never could get the hang of it.  A good friend of mine and fellow artist turned me back on to this wonderful medium, and also to the use of "true gesso" panels and claybord.   Most of my efforts have been to master the making of fine surfaced panels to paint on.  Therein lies the secret to egg tempera.  The surface itself.  Build and using a good foundation is the key to working in egg tempera.

Also I've spent quite a bit of time sourcing Virgina based pigment sources.
