How exciting! We have some lovely new stock just arrived. Our range of plates and mugs can be painted in our studio, and we expect some exciting designs and ideas to come out!
These items are only available in our studio & not as a painting kit... why?! It's a great question, and this post sets out to answer it :-)
Our painting kits come with non-toxic, washable, paint and varnish. While these are great for trinket boxes, figures, frames, money banks, and general use, they aren't good for use with food, as they just won't stand up to the moisture, heating, and wear and tear!
We want you to have great looking, lasting, designs for years to come so we use special paint in our studio that will make sure your designs stay fixed, once they have been fired.
Once painted, the items stay with us overnight for firing (getting that lovely glazed finish that is strong and durable), and you can then collect them as soon as the following day. Just remember to pick them up within 3 months!
Anything that goes through this firing process will then also be water safe, heat proof, and food safe! Meaning you can bring out your lovely creations on special occasions (or any time!) to spruce up your table with your very own work. The kids love having plates that they've painted themselves, and these plates are also a great gift for grandparents or aunts/uncles - a special plate at grandmas' house that the kids made especially for her!
How about the other things in our shop?! Well....great news - ALL OF OUR STOCK can be fired!
What does this mean?!
This means that whichever item you want, you can come into our studio instead of purchasing online. You paint the item in our studio, leave it with us when you're finished painting, and we will prepare and fire the piece ready for you as soon as the following day. Now you don't have to worry when your special item gets a little wet or dirty - just wipe it clean like you would any plate, or wipe with a damp cloth.
So come in and visit us, and let us know beforehand which item you would like to purchase, and we will get you on your way to some lovely fired pieces :-)
