  1. I am not modeling it myself. I actually found a website where I can buy the pieces and then paint at home. They have several options - buy the ceramics only, buy pre-glazed ceramics, or I can opt to have it fired and send it back to them for them to do it. I do not have a kiln. But my husband bought me only acrylic paint. So some items I want to paint would be only decorative and that will be fine but some would be dishes and such. So I am debating if I should keep the paint, exchange the paint, etc. I can rent the paint from the website I found also but since the paint was a gift I would like to use it! Just not sure if it would be better to get something other than acrylic so I can use it on everything? I am very excited to start a project but I want to have all the right supplies first.
  2. Thank you for the brush recommendations! So is it better to return the acrylic paint for something else and then have it fired?
  3. Hi all. I'm fairly new to ceramics but have fell in love with it quickly. I found a place in the neighborhood where I can paint ceramics and then they take care of the firing. Recently my husband bought me acrylic paint so I can paint at home. So now my questions are: 1) I do not need to fire the piece when using acrylic paint right? 2) but then its also only ok for decorative pieces and is not food safe right? 3) do I need to do anything to the piece after painting then? I have been reading about brush on sealers and spray sealers but do not know if I need to do that or which is better. 4) if I want to write on the piece that is not being fired what is the best tool to use? A certain paint pen that is good for non- fired pieces? Or just like a squeeze bottle filled with the acrylic paint? Any suggestions are extremely appreciated!
