After beating all the quests, here are some tips which I hope everyone will be able to agree with or find useful in some way.

Sometimes the clay can seem out of balance. You can drag your finger slowly in and out and it will smooth itsself out. It is also useful to do it slowly if you want a very small amount in the change of shape you are trying to achieve.

If you are having trouble with the shape of an item matching the picture, keep trying and don't give up! Usually you can find the solution to your problem by fiddling with an area that may look slightly off. if nothing seems wrong, check the height of your pottery. Things can sometimes be smaller or taller than they look. Fiddle with it til it's right!

If you are having trouble matching the pattern of pottery for a quest, remember to carefully read the e-mail for clues of origination like Egypt or Japan, ect. Then, check your picture and look for basics shapes or recognizeable things. Go to the section for patterns under the category that your e-mail hinted to you and it will be there.

It is helpful to know what patterns you need in advance and if you have the right amount of money to purchase them. If you do it ahead of time, you won't end up spending a long time making a pottery piece and then not having the money for patterns!

If you have trouble matching the color, sometimes it may be a combination of colors rather than just one. it is also sometimes helpful to use a color wheel or experiment with combinations until you get the right one. you should also not forget that you can remove layers of color to make a lighter shade using the big red x color choice box.

You can tilt your screen to get a slightly different view of your pottery. It can sometimes be helpful to see under a curve or to get the same perspective that a picture is taken from.

Buyers from quests don't expect things to be completely perfect but you need at least 7 stars to pass.

If you are making things for your own purposes, sometimes its fun to mix and match styles. Don't be afraid to experiment!

The most fun I had was sharing my designs with other people and watching the things that they create! Have fun and don't get stressed if something isn't working quite right. Take a break and make your own design, then come back when your mind is fresh. Have fun!

Email 8 is one of the largest pots in the game, so make the clay as big as you can and then shape it.

I'm stuck on email 20. The last 3 or 4 seem impossible to get all the design stars. On 20 I have allied all the patterns and it still only shows 3 stars. I have 5 stars in the shape, but I can't tell if this one is supposed to be painted at all or not.

For e-mail 20, you actually have to make the dotted line from one of the brush between each different pattern, not just the half-circle
The picture is a bit misleading..

How about email 19 for the kids party. I cannot get the paint right.

I couldn't figure out the brushes used on the top and central part of the soda bottle in email #28.
Any suggestions?
