Painting clay sculptures

As we had nice dry statues, we decided to paint them- like the Romans did with theirs.  First, we mixted colours to make our own shades, including skin tone (which is really hard). We used our knowledge of the colour wheel to mix carefully. At the end we covered them in PVA glue (which was scary as they went white).  When it dried, it went shiny like varnish.
