Garden animal

It’s fun to turn a plain ceramic animal into a colourful creation with a little bit of help from Resene.

Resene kids art with Mark Rayner - Project 131

Difficulty level: Challenging

You will need

Paint a pink seal
Baby seal in pink

Or paint a blue seal
Another idea: paint it blue

Top tip: If your ceramic animal is shiny, lightly sand it first and use Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer instead of Resene Acrylic Undercoat.

Here's another idea: This baby seal was painted with a Resene testpot of Resene Half Resolution Blue.
