Paint At Home

‘Painting at Home’ became an option when I needed to find a way to continue to work during the Covid-19 lockdowns. My paint at home kits proved so successful, that I have decided that they are here to stay! They work as follows:
  • Please email me at enquiries@2spots.co.uk to make your enquiry/place your order.
  • We can then come up with a plan re the items you would like to the paint and the required glaze colours. I will send you my bank details for payment.
  • I will make a pottery painting kit for you which will include instructions, the bisque fired pottery, glaze paints, mixing tiles, brushes/sponges and stickers (if required).
  • The kit can then be  collected from my home in Colden Common when convenient.
  • Once you have painted your pottery, please return it to me for glazing and firing in my kiln.
  • Please allow approximately two weeks for the items to be ready to collect.

Option 1: Paint Your Own Pottery Kits

This is a lovely activity to do at home, maybe on your own, with the rest of your family or with a group of friends. It’s a perfect activity for a birthday party or hen party!

You can create a design of your choice, or there are some easy designs to create that have a brilliant impact such as using a circle sponge to apply the paint or making dots with the end of a pencil. Stickers also create great designs – these are applied to the pottery item before painting and are then removed afterwards to leave an outline.

I will include everything that you will need in your kits. Colour choices for paint your own pottery are: red, pink, orange, yellow, mint green, dark green, sky blue, turquoise blue, purple, grey, brown and black. I will include up to 5 colours of glaze paint per kit.

Choices for paint your own items are as follows: Mug, Plate (20cm), Bowl (15cm). Each item is £12. Some examples are shown below:

Option 2: Fingerprint Kits

Fingerprints, or baby big toeprints look brilliant when turned into creatures or other artwork. I can do this kind of work for you by appointment in my home workshop, but lockdown showed that it works really well at home too!
Many people have found it a great activity to do with their children, and it can work brilliantly at a family gathering where you might like to capture the fingerprints of several family members e.g. grandparents, children and grandchildren. You just need to do the prints and I will add all the artwork and text when the pottery is returned.
I will include everything that you will need in your kits. Colour choices for fingerprints are: red, pink, orange, yellow, mint green, dark green, sky blue, turquoise blue, purple, grey, brown and black. I will include up to 5 colours of glaze paint per kit.
Choices & prices for items decorated with fingerprints/toeprints (including all artwork and text) are as follows: Coaster size tile (10cm square) £12, Mugs £18, Plates (20cm diameter) £18, Flowerpot, Jugs & Large Plates £25. Some examples are shown below:
