My dd was given this for her birthday and has painted it and it is dry.

Only trouble is the instructions have been thrown away, so I don't know how long to bake it for or at what temp.

Any suggestions?

Not the same paints but mine ask you to place object in cold oven and turn on to 160 degrees C. At 160 degrees C set timer for 90 minutes.
"After that turn off the oven and let the painted object cool down in the closed oven. Paint for porcelain is waterproof, weatherproof and dishwasher safe."

They are these paints but I think most of these little tubs that are ok for kids are fairly similar.

My top tip is to remember to remove the rubber bung before baking"
