Ready for another creative project at home? We love this pottery kit from Sculpd. It’s ample set with enough for two people to get stuck in to a good bit of creating pottery at home.
A Sculpd Pottery Kit contains everything you’ll need to sculpt, carve, paint and seal your own pinch pots, succulent plant pots, trinket dishes, vases, candle holders, sculptures, wall hangings, coasters, pendants and everything in between.
Every kit contains enough clay for two people. You can create 4 or more pinch pots or 2 larger plant pots with plenty left over for the finishing touches.
What’s in the kit?
– 2 Packs Premium Air-Dry Clay
– Step-By-Step Beginners Pottery Guide
– Pottery Carving, Shaping and Cutting Tools & Tool Bag
– White Acrylic Paint
– Glossy Varnish / Sealant
– 2 Paintbrushes
– Sponge for Smoothing
We use a premium air-drying clay that is soft, supple, easy to manipulate and dries a lovely light grey colour with a smooth surface making it a joy to paint on. We’ve tested every air-dry clay we could get our fingers into, and this clay is hands down the best.
It’s a great easy project with wonderful unique results. The materials are easy to get hold of and it would be a simple effective way to produce lots of great little gifts (for teachers gifts, stocking fillers, house warming presents) or to create something unique for your own home.
It would be great left in simple plain wood but there would be lots of decorative ideas and projects that could work.
Staining the wood to and alternative colour could make it sit well against other woods in the room. It would work well painted – a dark tone to make items pop, the colour of a wall to blend it in or pick a highlight colour from other accessories already in the room or pull a colour from the wall paper or patterned textiles.
In a kids room in could become a mini dolls home with different colours all over, maybe patterns papers on each back wall and decorating it could even be a great project for the whole family.
Hobbycraft would be full of all the things you’d need to start but also tester pots from DIY stores would give a perfect range of colours to choose from.
