Pick up pottery and paint at home!
Shop online for the ceramics, paints and brushes you want. We'll pick, pack (with gloves and masks) and notify you when your order is ready for pick up. After creating your masterpieces, bring them back for glazing and firing at your convenience!
HOW IT WORKS
First sponge your ceramic piece off with a clean moist sponge (not from your kitchen) to remove dust, and prep before painting.
All paints require 3 coats in order to come out a solid color and avoid seeing brush strokes once fired. Allow paint to dry so it's no longer shiney between coats to create solid layers (1 to 2 minutes).
Anything left unpainted will come out white and glossy after firing.
Start with light colors first. Lights do not show up well on top of darks. They appear washed out, and faint unless you apply 3 solid layers. We recommend starting with your lighter colors as the base and applying darker ones on top. The darker colors will stand out on top of the light base.
#2 Pencil burns off after firing so feel free to sketch designs on your piece with pencil.
Make sure to only use our own paints on your ceramics. No sharpies, markers, outside paint brands can be used.
