I love to paint pottery!

Step 1: Select a Piece of Bisque to Paint 
Choose a piece or two to paint.  Our shelves are loaded with great pottery just waiting for you to add color and make them come alive.  Each piece varies in price from $10 to $80.00. We do NOT have a studio fee!  The cost of your pottery also covers the cost of our glazes, stencils, sponges, decorating supplies, and the firing of your piece.  Just add tax.  We do offer some exciting “Specialty Glazes” you may choose to use.  Since they are “special” there is a nominal fee to use them.  Check out our Pinterest Page for some great painting ideas!

Tips:

Not sure how to design your pottery/bisque piece?  You may use a regular pencil or watercolor marker to draw your design on your piece.  We also carry carbon paper which you can use to “copy” a design from a picture.   All pencil marks will burn off ceramic bisque during firing.

How much paint should I use?  Use one coat for translucent, two for semi opaque, or three coats for opaque.  Make sure to wash and dry your brushes before change paint.  When painting, work on your lighter colors first, and then use your darker paints.  Light colors do not show up well on dark colors.  Plan accordingly!

Happy painting!  And as always, you can find all the ceramic bisque you need right here in our studio! Let us know if you are looking for something special.  We can always special order pottery with enough advance notice!
