Ceramics painting is a very approachable activity, anyone can do it. There are hundreds of different items available for painting any way you want, and many samples if you need inspiration. We have one of the largest selections in any studio of the GTA with mugs, plates, figures, banks, vases and much, much more.

You start by browsing and selecting the items to paint. Then we explain how the paint works, and you choose as many colours as you need, starting with the largest areas. We bring the paint and you decorate any way you like,

Generally the items are ready for pickup after 5-7 days when using the foodsafe, glossy ceramics paint, but we also have high-quality acrylics paint that can be used for figures that you can take home the same day. 

How much does it cost?

There are no extra charges (except for tax), you only pay for the items you choose to paint.  All materials and the baking is included in the price, and there is no studio fee!

The ceramic painting experience starts around $30 plus tax for a large group of cute small figures, and the majority of the items average around $38 plus tax.

The most expensive items in the studio would perhaps be a huge 17″ tall Christmas tree or some fantastic very large dragons at $115 plus tax. All prices subject to change. 

How long does it take?

Most adult painters take at least two hours because there are so many cool things to choose from and it takes a little time to decide how to paint. To get the best result it’s best to paint each colour with three layers, but the paint dries in only two minutes.

Kids usually paints faster, but an hour to two is common.

There is no time limit, stay as long as we’re open. If you’re not done by the time we close, we’ll happily wrap the items up, you take them home and come back another day to finish, no charge.

Unfortunately we can not store any “work in progress” projects, sorry.

Are mugs, plates, vases safe to use?

Yes! Mugs, plates, vases etc. painted with ceramic paint become food-safe after baking in our special ovens. 

They are microwave safe, but we recommend hand washing as opposed to machine washing, as they are less “tough” than store bought ceramics and will chip fairly easily.

Items can be painted with acrylics paint for quick results, but they are not food safe. A mug painted with acrylics make a great pen holder.

Does the paint stain clothes?

The ceramic paint does not stain clothes, it brushes right off when dry. It’s also completely non-toxic, even gluten-free, because it is essentially glass powder. 

You can also paint ceramics with acrylic paint, and acrylic paint is a normal, fast drying paint which will stain clothes, so please dress for the occasion when using acrylics.

How long do you keep the painted pieces?

We have limited storage space so the finished items must be picked up within 30 days. We do not guarantee they’ll be kept for more than 30 days.

We call you as soon as the painted items are ready for pickup, and we will call again before the items are disposed. Make sure you check your phone messages. Unfortunately we do not compensate if the items were disposed.
