Coloring technique

I recently started doing clay sculpting, and since I'm still in the learning process, I've used a friends sculptures as a template to copy to help me learn. This is my first big piece, didnt turn out nearly as good as his original, but close enough for me, and I learned quite a bit from it. But now is the scary part, coloring it. He told me he used an oil based paint and paint thinner to achieve the look he got, but was wondering if anyone else has used this technique and might have more info. Or, similar a technique at least.

Thanks,
Nick

Re: Coloring technique

Well I made two small test pieces, tried an oil based stain and an oil based paint. The stain never seemed to even dry, and both the paint and stain came out glossy. Now I have no idea what to try next...

Re: Coloring technique

Ended up going with basic acrylic paint, turned out ok, but not quite like I was hoping.
