paint wont be an exact match, I think colours change in the kiln , so I will try and get as near as poss , then apply some craft PVA with a little water mix for a glaze and then i'm done , not brilliant I know but at least better than the state I got it and can now be used as a lampbase if required , good bit o' fun as well  Laughter
