How Does Painting Your Own Pottery Work?

It’s easy, you just pick out what you want to paint!  Pieces are priced between $5-$80, with most pieces in the $15-35 range. The prices on our shelves include all the paint, glaze, firing, and studio time.  Use as many paint colors as you like and take as much time as you want. If you don’t finish, take it with you and bring it back – there’s still no extra charge!

Easy as 1, 2, 3 — Choose it, Paint it, Pick it up!

1) Choose it

Choose your pottery from our wide selection of pieces. (This might be the hardest part!)

2) Paint it

Next, choose your colors, grab your brushes, sit down and get started! We have about 90 different colors in stock, including some fun specialty glazes, so don’t forget to ask if you feel like creating something a little different!  If you’re looking for some creative inspiration – our experienced staff is here to help you. We also have stamps, stencils, sponges and lots of display pieces to help spark your creative flow! Oh,  all our products are food safe, non-toxic, and wash out of clothing.

3) Pick it up

In about a week – you can come back and pick up your masterpiece!

Step 3: Glazed & Fired Plate

Why a week?

Well, after you’re done painting, we let it dry overnight because nothing can go in the kiln wet. Then, we coat half your piece with a clear glaze and leave it to dry overnight. Then we glaze the other half & let it dry (again). Then, we put everything in the kiln and fire things up… literally! We bake your pieces at over 1,600 deg F. The whole firing cycle takes about 28 hours. So now you know why it takes a whole week to get your piece back!
