Paint-Your-Own Pottery

How it works:

Pick a piece of pottery. The price you see is the price you pay, plus tax. Really, it includes everything.

Design & Paint!

Use stamps, stencils or pencil to sketch your art. We have design books, display ideas and if you need help, just ask! If you can’t finish your project, simply take it with you and bring it back when you’re ready to paint again. There is never a fee to return.

Before and After

Part of the fun of working with paint-your-own pottery is the anticipation of seeing the final product. Pottery glazes are very different in color when they are first applied. Not to worry, though, we offer friendly guidance and color tiles to help you understand how your colors will appear after firing.

Before they are fired, colors are more pastel in appearance. Add up to four coats of glaze to deepen and brighten the final colors. After firing, the colors become vivid and our clear coat adds a beautiful shine. Once complete, your work of art will be food-safe and ready for display or use.
