My friends and I discovered the greatest place ever. It’s comparable to Disneyland (and cheaper than a therapist if you’re stressed and need a little craft time).
At a little shop called Paint the Town, you can choose from over 250 pre-made ceramic pieces and PAINT THE HECK OUT OF IT. You use the store’s materials to paint your ceramic and they fire it for you…ready to be picked up in 7 days! Every piece, whether it’s a pot, plate, mug, penguin, shark or gnome, has a different price based on size. It was impossible to choose just one!
I’ve been on a “white” streak for my art room, buying a lot of decor pieces that are white. Which is why I left my whale unpainted save the inside (took this photo right before I painted his inners Green Apple and named him Kiwi). Then I learned that people from New Zealand are also called Kiwis (the flightless Kiwi is native to and a national symbol of New Zealand).
Some of the finished works of random kids. I’m excited to see what ours look like!
My only regret is that I didn’t take more photos of Mo’s tea pot in progress (it was beautifully painted with details carved out). Here’s a sad, blurry before-photo of her soon-to-be master piece.
And of course Val’s spectacular paintmanship. The ivy design continues inside the pot!
“After” photos to be posted soon :)
