Step 1

Clean your hands – the pottery doesn’t like dirty fingers!!!
Choose your ceramic piece from our range available to paint, or speak to a member of our staff about our commission ordering service .

Take a clean wet sponge and remove any dust or marks from the piece.

Step 2

Create your very own unique design – Inspiration on pottery painting can be provided by our samples, templates or staff – If you’re stuck, just ask for help.

Step 3

Select your colours from our extensive range of non toxic paints

Once you have selected your colours, take the corresponding paint from the tray on the table and squeeze some onto your pallet tile. The paints dry very quickly, so only use a small amount at a time – you can always get some more if you need it.

Apply light colours first and then build up to dark.

Remember – wash your brush or sponge out between colours!

If you require hand/footprints and need help – just ask a member of staff and they will be happy to help you.

Paints, sponges, stamps, pens and templates are available for you to use, with our staff on hand to get you started.

Step 4

Create your very own masterpiece – Every piece is a personalised and individual piece of art!

Paint strokes – 1,2,3:

  • 1 coat of paint will give a water colour effect
  • 2 coats of paint will give a medium coverage
  • 3 coats of paint will give you an opaque solid coverage

Step 5

Hand your piece of art over to our friendly staff and we will glaze and fire it in our kiln.  We aim to have your pottery painting ready for collection within 1 week. The pottery is suitable for food use and can be used in the dishwasher (although hand washing is recommended as it can reduce the lifespan of the pottery). Pottery should not be used in the microwave

Please Note:

- It is your responsibility to ensure that your hands are clean whilst pottery painting. Any grease on your hands will ruin the paint and glaze finish, which cannot be rectified by Roobarb & Kustard. We are not responsible or liable for greasy marks on pottery, therefore we recommend you wash your hands with soap prior to painting.
– Your children are your own responsibility and must be supervised at all times.
