ARTifact Ceramic Bar specializes in glass painting! We offer fresh and functional objects for you to paint.
Drop In & Paint any First Friday or book a studio party at our downtown Binghamton location.
Our glass & ceramic paints are high quality, glossy, and vibrant. Unlike ceramic glazes that appear dull until fired, our paints are vibrant, mix well together, layer nicely, and dry glossy in a matter a minutes. No guessing, what you see is what you get!
And when placed on the outside of a food or drink object, they are food/drink safe!
At home oven baking is suggested for most items to ‘cure’ the item and make it extra durable- no worries, we give you easy and safe directions.
Pre-glazed white ceramic items that are the perfect blank canvas for your ideas.
Glass items that offer an ‘inside/outside’ view of what you have painted- when using layers, the possibilities are endless!
The best thing of all? You don’t have to wait to have your item fired in a special kiln- as soon as you finish your creation you can bring it home to enjoy.
Glass & Ceramic painting parties for all ages!
Choose from a variety of glass & ceramicware, everyone paints whatever fun ideas they want, and we provide unlimited color, help, and ideas.

Baking Directions & Basic Info:
Paint 'air cures' in 3 weeks, or better yet, bake your items in your home oven to make them extra durable.
Place your fully dried ceramic or glass object(s) in a room temperature oven on clean racks for a cookie sheet.
Once they are in the oven, close the door and preheat to 325 degrees. Pay close attention-
Once it is done preheating (reaching 325 degrees), start timing for 30 minutes. Occasionally the baking process creates a mild plastic-like smell- this is normal.
Once 30 minutes are up, turn off the heat and let the objects cool until room temp.
Once room temp, you can take them out. Gentle hand wash only, use a soft cloth with mild soap and warm water and start using!
*It is important to heat up and cool down the objects slowly so they don't crack or shatter due to extreme temperature difference!
