4 Easy Steps On How To Paint Pottery

How To Paint Pottery

1. Choose your bisque.

2. Pick your paint colors.  All of our paints are water-based so they are easy to clean up and won’t stain clothing. We recommend three coats of each color of paint. We also have special glazes, matte paints and cool techniques if you’re interested in something a little different. All glazes are 100% non-toxic and washable, so smocks are not needed.
