Claytopia's spacious studio gives children and adults a place to test their creative chops through the medium of clay painting. A wide variety of blank, premade clay bisques offer myriad canvasses upon which the fevered imaginations of patrons may be projected. Bisque prices range from $1 to $50 per piece, and an hourly fee applies ($6 per hour for adults, $4 per hour for children under 13) to cover unlimited use of all paints, glazes, stencils, stamps, and other instruments of artistic creation, including philosophical advice and painting tips from the talented staff. Possible paintable forms include coffee mugs, plates, picture frames, and Disney figurines. All bisques and paints are food, microwave, and dishwasher safe. After painting and glazing their piece of choice, art makers should allow a week for the bisque to be fired in the kiln and laid off from its part-time job before picking up the newly hardened artistic creation.

Eschewing the dust storms associated with sanding, Fabulous Floors' hardwood technicians rejuvenate dull planks with a gentle buffing treatment. These flooring experts thoroughly vacuum surfaces and spot-treat larger nicks with color-matched putty before starting the buffing process, which can restore luster to hardwood, laminate, engineered wood, and Pergo floors. The buffing process typically only takes a few hours, after which customers are free to put back their furniture or once again practice their figure-skating twirls.
