Glazing Guidelines

Creating dots

  • Use the non-bristle end of the brush. Dip in the glaze and dab onto the bisque. Dip into the glaze each time you make a dot for the best effect!

General Painting

  • 2-3 coats of glaze results in a solid colour finish. The glaze is dry enough for another coat when the shine has gone.
  • Avoid overloading the brush to avoid losing control of the flow of glaze. Regularly wash and dry your brushes carefully.
  • To make corrections, let the glaze dry and sand off…. Better still, make your ‘mistake’ part of the design!

Nice to know:

  • Glazes are non-toxic and water soluble. If left to dry they will brush off clothes and are easily washed off.
  • You may use your own, thoroughly cleaned with washing up liquid and rinsed. No traces of other paints or glue must be on them (it will spoil your pottery when firing).

Our ask from you

  • Brushes MUST be returned with your pottery.
  • We can reuse the pots. If you have no use for them, please return them with the pottery.
  • Only use the glazes on the pottery you are having fired. They are not suitable for other craft activities.
  • For best results, please read the instructions that come with your kit (even if you are a regular!) as we may have added new watch outs or top tips since you last painted with us.
  • Do not use any other paint / substance on your pottery before firing.
