Hi! Clear spray paint works well to preserve oil pastels, water color,
tempera and marker that has been drawn/painted on fired clay. You didn't say
what the students made, but obviously no one should eat or drink out of an
item coated with spray paint. Susan.

I have a question a fellow teacher of mine wanted to know if someone
might have the answer. She has made clay pieces with her students. On
the clay, the students made wonderful texture which they decorated with
water based markers. The clay has been fired. She was wondering if
there was some kind of protective coating she could coat the pieces with
that would protect the marker and not cause the markers to run. I
suggested Mod Podge, but we feel it would cause the markers to run.

Does anyone have any ideas out there? I am not well versed in clay and
could really use your help.

Thanks for all your help in advance.
