1. Select a piece of pottery to paint.
We have a design center and a huge display of the colors offered. We have a fabulous selection of kitchenware, household items, platters, and so much more.
2. Design your piece
You can design your piece using any of our supplies, pour your own paints, and start painting away. Our design center has stamps, stencils, tape, q-tips, dollies, silkscreens and much much more. We have over 100 colors to choose from, a beautiful selection of underglazes, speckled, sparkly, puffy paints and designer liners.
A staff person will walk you though the whole process; showing you the design center and paints and explain how to get started.
Painting pottery is fun — and easy, too. The hardest part is choosing something to paint from our amazing selection! Once you’ve picked a piece, it’s smooth sailing. Here’s what you do:
You can apply your design to your pottery in several different ways. You can paint directly on the surface or sketch your design with a pen or pencil depending on which studio you paint at. All pen or pencil marks will burn off in the kiln and will not appear on the finished piece. Please consult our idea books, and try any of our stencils, stamps, sponges, or other techniques. Creative techniques may be demonstrated by any one of our staff members.
If you’ve chosen to sketch your design first, the next step will be to apply the paint. All our paints are nontoxic and food-safe. And don’t worry if you make a mess! Paints will wash out of clothes, and we’ll take care of clean up for you! Since we over-glaze all your artwork, any blank spaces will be shiny and white.
