Good for you! You have moulded a piece of pottery, and it even may vaguely look like what you were attempting to make! Let's get out a brush and decorate that sucker to make it look pretty!

See pottery for an overview on the pottery process and the syntax required to successfully make a pottery item.

The skillcheck for successfully staining a pottery item is crafts.pottery.staining. Depending on the complexity of the design, it may take from one to three applications of stain to achieve the final product; and generally the more complex the pattern, the higher the bonus needed to achieve better outcomes.

Quality

The adverb seen while glazing an object provide an indication as to final degree of success. Different colors can be utilized at each step of a multi-step design. However, an object can only be stained with one design; and designs with multiple steps cannot be altered to a new design in the middle of the staining process.

Adverbs (highest quality to lowest quality)

  • Expertly <counts for staining achievements>
  • Deftly <counts for staining achievements>
  • Carefully
  • Casually
  • Hastily

Staining progression messages:

  • You <adverb> start to decorate a(n) [object] with some [color] stain. (or)
  • You <adverb> start staining a(n) [object].

Finish message (not final stain):

  • You finish applying the stain to the [object].

Finish message (final stain):

  • You finish applying the final stain to the [object].

Where there is more than one step in staining an object, it is the final adverb which sets how the design looks. For instance, in a three step staining process which gives "carefully...carefully...casually", the object will acquire the "casual" design output.

If an object is being stained with a multi-step design and it is examined in the middle of a process, the following will be seen in the description:

  • "An unfinished stained pattern adorns it."
