How It Works
Welcome to Bisque It! We are a do-it-yourself pottery painting studio in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
We offer a fun and creative environment for all ages and abilities! Never visited before? Here's how it all works...
1. PICK OUT WHAT YOU WANT TO PAINT
We have many different pieces to choose from! From dishes to figurines, you are sure to find a piece that triggers the creativity inside you.
2. CHOOSE YOUR COLORS
Choose as many colors as you want! There is no limit to what you can create. We offer a variety of colors along with many "specialty" glazes.
3. PAINT YOUR PIECE
You have your piece, your brushes, and your paints... It's now time to create your masterpiece! We have many sample pieces painted and on display to help get your creative juices flowing. Our staff is also eager to assist you with any technique you would like to learn.
4. GLAZING & FIRING PROCESS
When you are done painting your piece, leave the rest to us! We take each painted piece and dip it in a clear glaze. This will make the final piece shiny, food-safe, and weatherproof. We then load it into the kiln and fire it to 1600 degrees Fahrenheit! When it is finished we will call you to come pick up your finished masterpiece! This process takes about 7-10 days. We will hold your finished piece for 30 days.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do we need an appointment?
A: No, we are a walk-in studio. Come in any time during regular business hours! If you have a group of 8 or more, it's a good idea to give us a call and see if we have a table available. Space is limited for large groups.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: When you come to paint, you pay the price of the piece you are painting. The studio fee is included in that price. Pieces range from $6 to $50 with a lot of items in the $15-$25 range.
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are on North Coldwater Road between Cook and Wallen Roads; less than half a mile off of I-69 Exit 312-B.
Q: Can we take our piece home with us the same day?
A: When you are done painting, we keep your piece to glaze and fire. We call you when it is ready to be picked up. Turnaround time is roughly 10 days.
Q: What If I don't finish?
A: If you don't finish, we will wrap your piece up for you to take with you and return at a later date to finish. Our Work In Progress policy states that you have 90 days to finish your piece at no additional cost. After that, there is a charge to have your finished piece glazed and fired. Anything that is held for more than 180 days cannot be brought back to be fired.
Q: Where is the light switch in the bathroom?
A: Behind the door!
