Basic supplies, paint, studio time and staff suggestions are included in the price of your item. The staff will assist you with your color choices and give basic direction, hints and tips if you need.

We offer you a choice of different paint types:

Painting with acrylic paint can be sprayed matt or glossy and then allows you to take it home the same day (glitter is offered for free for those sparkle lovers). Perfect choice for the realistic animals and dragons. Ask the staff to show you the Dry-Brush technique.

If you choose to Paint with our Fun Stroke glazes by Gare, you will leave your item with Miss Tess for her to glaze and fire it for you. This will give you a high gloss look and if used on dishes or such, a surface that can be eaten off of or drunken out of. This process usually takes 7 days.

We sell a variety of craft supplies:

  • Specialty paints by Gare & Mayco
  • Low-fire clay for those who want to play with clay, tools and brushes, and low fire slip for those casting.
  • About 12,000 used ceramic molds (and a few brand new ones) are currently up for sale.
