How it works

Ceramic Painting or Foam Clay

Step 1

Firstly you will browse our pottery pieces and find your perfect piece. We have over 150 ceramic painting pieces to pick from – trust us this is the hardest part! From functional dinnerware to figurines, money banks and decorations you really will be spoilt for choice. All our ceramics include the equipment, then the glazing and firing or foam clay for each piece.

Step 2

A Doodle Alley team member will then discuss how ceramic painting is different and let you in on some ceramic painting trade secrets!
You will choose your colours from our Mayco paint range and we will show you how they change like magic in our kiln! Alternatively we will talk through the wonders of foam clay if you wish to take your piece home on the day.

Step 3

Get creative!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be an artist! Pottery painting is simple and fun for all abilities and often the most effective pieces are the most simple designs. We have examples all over the studio to give you inspiration alongside stickers, transfer paper, stencils and foam shapes!

Step 4

You will then leave your finished piece with us. We glaze and fire it in our large kiln to give a shiny and durable finish. You can then collect pieces from us when we contact you by telephone. If you are travelling through you can try our Foam Clay or have your pottery posted for a small extra cost.
