When you draw some pictures inside and outside, you should paint inside first. This is becasue the picture can be dirty or erased with your fingers.

At first, please decide what you would like to paint/draw. We have many sample pictures for your reference.


I have blue, green and brown, but I wonder what to paint.


1. Once having decided what to paint, let’s draw rough sketch with a pencil.

You can choose a design from those sample pictures here. Or I reccomend you prepare the design ahead at your home.


I think it might be difficult to paint with brush without rehearsing, but it’ easier to draw with a pencil.


Hmm…move the brush quickly like this? OK, I’ll practice doing it on this paper first.


2. Put the colors on the rough sketch.


When was the last time I painted something with a brush?

It you failed, don’t worry, you can remove unnecessary paint by shaving it off. Try to concentrate on paiting.


3. When you are satisfied with your paiting, that’s all.


Each of all looks great. It must be a good memento.


4. Please leave your pottery to our artisan. They’ll set it in a kiln.
Three weeks later, your pottery will be delivered to your home. *Charge extra Shipping fee.
