Im waiting for my first terracotta statue to come out of the kiln. I would like to paint it over. I understand that there is special paint for that, in case I want to refire it. So the first question is: what would be the benefit of that?
I read that it is possible to paint it without re firing the statue. Probably oil pain or acrylic, I dont remember what was in that article.
Does anyone have experience with these 2 methods? What are the differences?
