Hello

For red clay masks, try dark watercolor (blue or violet - Prang is
fine), then rinse. Can then use red water color for cheeks, followed by
gold tempera thinned with water (the gold flecks should rise to the top
- paint on the flecks). When dry, spray with Painter's Touch spray
 from the hardware store. This is per Carol Webb of the San Diego Art
Educators Assn. who does a lot with 'cold' finishes.

For a heavily textured project on white clay, I first applied black
tempera and then washed it off. It stayed in all the recessed areas.
Then they can finish with dabs of metallic acrylic. This was from a
lesson plan in (I think!) Arts and Activities from 2006.

Good luck!
