Do I have to buy mason stains online? Would any be sold at a hardware store or a home depot?

Online or your local clay supplier. US Pigment generally has good prices.

Local clay suppliers sometimes have them. I know they do in Austin and San Antonio.The Bray in Helena, MT.
where do you get your clay?

At Southern Pottery in Baton Rouge LA. It's an hour drive. I was just hoping it could be found at a hardware store. Guess not? :-/

I wish I had a stow an amour away. My closest is 280 miles one way..
Just order some online or drive the hour and pick up supplies.

US Pigment is only an hour away from me, but I still have everything shipped to me. By the time I pay for gas it comes out about the same. When I figure in my time I come out way ahead.

US pigment will also mix the colors discontinued by mason color--their prices are usually at or slightly below most clay suppliers.  The guy you'll talk to is Syed, and he is quiet knowledgeable and friendly--doesn't mind helping you with troubleshooting or questions (his background is in chemistry and materials science, he knows his stuff.)
