Boot polish on terracotta looks great . We also use it on clay which
has been slip decorated. The tan polish turns the cobalt slip to a
rich colour as too with the iron oxide slip.
I have students make low relief sculptures and then buff them up
with the boot polish. Dark tan seems to work the best and gives a
leather look.
