Does this pottery need to be fired in a kiln?
No! Our kits are made to be fun, diy, at-home paint projects. No kiln required! All of our kits come with 8 pots of acrylic paints, paint brushes, glossy sealer and a foam brush applicator for the glossy sealer. Just paint your pottery with the awesome colors provided, let it dry, and apply the glossy sealer. Then, voila! Your masterpiece is ready for display or play (we have a lot of painted unicorn and dinosaur play sessions around here)!
Can I choose my own colors?
Absolutely! Each kit comes with (1) eight color paint palette, including white and black and 6 other fun colors. You have the choice to select a palette that our team has put together (based on what we think will work well), or you can choose any 6 colors that you want! Want to make a pink and green robot? Go for it! The possibilities are endless :) We also offer an extra palette as an add-on. This way if you are sharing a kit or if your kiddo loves using lots of paint, you will have what you need!
What is a Tag-Along?
Tag-alongs are AWESOME. They are small, magnet-sized pieces of pottery (and, yes, you can actually make them into a magnet with the help of a hot glue gun :). Tag-alongs are hugely popular and are equally as fun to paint as the large piece of pottery that comes in the kit. There is more than enough paint in the kit to paint all the pieces that come in the kit and any other Tag-alongs you add to your cart (and probably a small canvas too)!
Is your pottery food-safe?
All of the mugs, bowls, ice cream cups that come glazed & fired are food safe in the interior and on the rim (lip line-when applicable). The entire interior and rim (lip line-when applicable) have been hand-glazed by us with a food safe glaze and fired in our kiln. We hand glaze them so that we can control how much of the design is covered by our glaze. We want the perfect balance of "safe to drink from" and "fun to paint"! Anywhere there is "bare bisque", or unglazed pottery, is able to be painted with the acrylic paint included in our kits, then sealed with the glossy sealer. The glossy sealer is a glue and is not food safe. Please make sure you drink only from the glazed portion of the mug. After being painted and sealed, we recommend hand washing only for our mugs.
All pottery that comes unglazed and unfired (bare bisque) will NOT be food-safe after painting. The glossy sealer included in our kits is a form of a glue and is not food safe. These pieces are for decoration only.
Why would I upgrade brushes?
Included in our kit is a very cost effective solution that will meet your needs. However, we wanted to make it possible to add a couple of things to the kit that would just add to the awesomeness. "Good" brushes are not included, as it would increase the cost of every box. We have many customers who buy every month and they would not want to purchase the same brushes every time.
