Here's how it works....it's soooo easy!
1. You come in and pick out your favorite piece to paint...we have lots of choices! Then, we will give you some brief instructions...and you're on your way. If you see a sample you want to copy, we will tell you how to make it yourself.

2. Paint! Choose from over 60 colors of our special paint, and use brushes, stamps, stencils and more in our design center to personalize your piece.

3. We will hand glaze, kiln fire, and finish your pieces to a smooth glossy shine, ready for pick up.

4. Pick up your pieces to take home seven days* after painting and enjoy! Your masterpiece is food safe...you can USE it! All of our materials are food safe and toxin free.


What does it cost?

Studio fee + Bisque Price = Final cost

How much is that?
Excellent question! Studio fees are $12.00 for painters 13 and over, and $8.00 for younger painters. This covers your paint, glazing, and firing for the whole day...yes, if you wanted to, you could paint everything in the place. Then, you just purchase your pieces. Bisque prices range from $4 medallions to $75 platters on up, and everything in between! Most pieces (mugs, banks, figurines, plates, etc) range between $15-30.

* We process pieces as soon as possible and they are often ready ahead of time. You can call in 4-5 days and we will be happy to check for you. When things get busy (holidays and school breaks) it could take a little longer--we'll let you know when you can expect your pieces to be ready when you come in to paint.

STAMPS: Choose from our selection or bring your own. Just remember, DARK colors go on top (last)!

STENCILS: Oh so fun and easy! All you do is trace the design onto your pottery and paint it in like a coloring book There are loads and loads of them to choose from!

FUN WRITERS: Are squeeze controlled "paint pens". They're awesome for doing small detail things like writing, outlining and design work! We LOVE them!

UNMOUNTED STAMPS: Work great for creating visual texture to your designs! They are cool and are super easy to use. Come in and let us show you how!

BODY PARTS: We are happy to help you stamp hands, fingers, and feet on just about any piece of pottery. We've also been known to paint a baby's bottom for a "Bum" print!
