Helpful Tips
Be sure to choose the correct option when placing your order, as pricing varies and Acrylic Pottery Painting Kits Cannot Be Fired. Paints last awhile in the small containers we provide, maybe a few weeks or a month...but not try to finish painting your project(s) before your paint dries up. Purchasing additional paints is an option if you forgot and waited too long to paint.

Local Guide

My family had a wonderful time creating their pieces of pottery. My grandchildren are 11 years old, 9 years old and 3 years old. They enjoyed all the choices and had trouble choosing one piece but they did! We had a choice of colors and they loved choosing them. The three year old did a lovely mermaid. We were all pleasant surprised, at how carefully she did her piece and how lovely it came out. All the pieces looked beautiful and we will definitely make this a stop for the next time, we visit.
