FAQ

pottery made simple

DO I NEED A POTTERY WHEEL?

You don’t need a pottery wheel or kiln. We keep it simple with quality air-dry clay that allows you to make your loveable creation at home.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO DRY?

When you’re happy with your masterpiece, simply allow 24 hours to dry. Creations that are thicker may take 3-4 days and make sure you let them creations dry in natural heat. Once dry, that's when the painting begins.

HOW LONG DOES THE CLAY LAST?

The clay will stay soft for 3-6 months if stored unopened in sealed clay bags.

DO YOU INCLUDE PAINT IN THE KIT?

The clay will dry naturally in a stunning grey colour that looks great, however if you would like to give it a modern look then you can use the white paint and brushes that we have provided in the kit. If you’d like to get colourful then we also offer acrylic paint sets that will be perfect for your creations.

WILL MY POT BE WATER RESISTANT?

Yes, simply cover with a few layers of the sealant provided in your kit and allow 30 minutes between each layer of sealant to create a water resistant pot... that simple.

CAN I EAT / DRINK OUT OF MY CREATION?

Unless fired in a kiln it will not be safe to eat or drink from.

HOW CAN I GET STARTED?

Let us make it simple for you, your Pottery People kit has an illustrated step by step guide for you but if you don’t want to stick to the guide then we say enjoy yourself and go for it!
