Not only for kids

Mark Rayner makes this sleepy Mexican child’s play to create on a wet day.

You will need: Three terracotta pots and a terracotta pot saucer, exterior PVA glue and paintbrushes (including artists’ brushes). Resene Terracotta Sealer. Resene testpots in the following colours: Resene Balloon, Resene Black, Resene Bright Red, Resene Bondi Blue, Resene Cioccolato, Resene Dark Buff, and Resene Galliano.

Here's another idea: To create a shiny look, apply one coat of Resene Mutishield + gloss once the paints have dried.
