Our bestselling children's paint at home ornament kits
Who doesn't need a unicorn sitting pride of place in their room? Lots of opportunity for exploring colour with the mane and tail, or keeping it simple wth a single colour and patterns over the top instead.
It might look like a simpler piece of pottery but don't be fooled. Our gecko has been painted and decorated in so many ways - there is a reason why it's our bestselling group item.
The mug is great for older children, or if you want to sit down and paint the same thing as the children. Opportunity to personalise, write names, do hand prints, finger prints or paint a picture of something, and at the end you have your own unique mug to use.
You will need to provide a bowl of water, a plate to put the paint on and some kitchen towel. Then you are good to go!
Each kit is £14.50 per painter
There is an additional £10 firing fee for each kit ordered. For example, if you order 2 pieces of pottery, there is just a single £6 firing fee.

Learning Benefits of Pottery Painting
Painting improves hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. They develop an understanding of the feel and way in which to handle paints as well as a chance to explore colour. It starts them on a journey of creativity - planning and designing their pottery independently.
Provides a creative outlet for self-expression and exploration. A chance to develop new skills as they learn and practice ever more complex painting techniques. They plan and design before starting to create their vision on pottery. It can also help with developing greater self-confidence in their own abilities and development, as well as improve concentration.

Guide by Age
Start with lighter colours and focus on one part of the pottery e.g. the head
Make sure to mix in a good amount of water with the paint, only a small amount of paint is needed
Paint two coats of paint, it dries very quickly!
Use darker colours for details and patterns e.g. fingerprints, dots with the end of a brush, stripes or sponging.
Try planning the design out first on a piece of paper
Perhaps use different colours for different parts of the pottery e.g. one colour for the head, another for the body and tail
There are other techniques they can use such as dot hearts or painting a specific picture.
