Animal Planter Paint Your Own Pottery Bisqueware Ceramic or pottery bisque (often called "biscuit", "ceramic blanks" or "pottery blanks") refers to pottery bisque which has been fired once, but has not yet been glazed. It is usually a creamy colour and looks similar to an unpainted plaster or clay shape, and is sometimes also referred to as bisqueware or biscuit ware. The bisque can be painted with a ceramic colour such as an underglaze, before it is coated in a clear dipping glaze ready to be fired in a ceramic kiln. (As an alternative to underglazes, you can also use textured Foam Clay or non-fired acrylic stains.)

Please note all of our ceramic bisqueware is fired to cone 04, while our range of stoneware bisque is fired to cone 6.

We know that high quality ceramic bisque blanks are essential to running a successful paint your own pottery studio or ceramic cafe. All of our bisque ceramic blanks are of the highest standard and are suitable for use with all popular brands of colour and glaze, including Gare, Duncan, Colorobbia and more- please ask us if you need any advice.
