The Do Art Pottery Studio by Faber-Castell allows kids to create original vases, cups, and other thrown vessels on their very own pottery wheel. The wheel surface is grooved to hold the clay firmly and keep it centered. Convenient foot pedal operation conserves the batteries and keeps your hands free to create. The Do Art Pottery Studio contains 3lbs. of air dry clay, a trimming cord with handles, 6 sculpting tools, sponge, white base paint, 6 acrylic paints, 6 transparent glaze paints, 2 paint brushes, large table cover, and an apron. Requires 4 C batteries (not included). Reccomended for ages 8 and up. **Important Note – This pottery wheel is a high-quality children’s craft product. Although the function is similar, it should not be compared to professional pottery wheels.
