"A traditional gift is a clay horse, which they paint in bright colours." Is this a correct sentence with a nonrestrictive clause "which they paint in bright colours." ?
And if I write : "A traditional gift is a clay horse that they paint in bright colours," is it also a correct sentence but now with a restrictive clause ?

    I would say both are correct, but if it is necessary that the horse be painted, I would not use a restrictive clause. I would instead say "A traditional gift is a clay horse painted in bright colors."
