- Small paint brushes
- Paints for glazing (3 colours are sufficient)
- A bowl of water
- Newspaper on the table
- A sponge

Visit your local hardware or market and choose your pottery with your child.

Wet your sponge, squeeze any excess water and wipe pottery.
If you are using a base colour on your pottery, using a sponge, dip in paint and paint pottery until covered.
