Painting the clay bowl
Now you are ready to paint the bowl.
Mix tempera with about a spoonful of liquid detergent. Clay is oily, and the detergent helps the paint to stick to the bowl. If the paint does not stick well, add more detergent.
When the paint is dry, cover the bowl with shellac to protect the paint.
