Painting greenware question

beachmom99August 5, 2009

My son made a piece of pottery at an art fair but we didn't get it fired. Are we able to paint this? We don't have any access to a kiln so is it possible to use some type of craft paint without going through the firing process? Can you put any type of sealer on afterwards?

thanks!

This is just clay as it is and it must be fired.
He can paint the greenware with underglazes and then fire once, afterwards applying a sealant or not. This will eliminate the glaze firing.
