Painting Tips & Tricks

Ceramics To Go!

It is important for all ceramics to be sponged off to remove any dust. This is a step that we do for you before you take it home. 

When you start painting, remember to keep your brush full of paint. Three layers of paint are needed to get the most vivid colors. Evenly paint on the first coat and allow it to dry before starting on the second. 

If you are going to add decorative details, make sure you use dark colors on lighter colors. Lighter colors do not show up often when applied on top of dark colors. 

To change colors rinse out the brush with water and dab it on a paper towel to remove all the water before dipping it into the next color. 

Let the finished piece sit overnight before wrapping it up to return to the store. Glaze should completely dry before touching it with the risk of removing some of the paint when it is wet.
