    My class are about to embark on painting clay pots for Mother's Day/Easter. Does anyone know the best way to fix the paint to make sure it doesn't run/smudge etc. I forgot to fix my examle pot and it now has some delightful fingerprints on it!
    Is watered down PVA the way forward?
    Thank you

    PVA is the cheap way but remember it isn't waterproof
