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.
No matter the size or complexity of the painting job at hand, Josh Leach and his licensed, insured, and bonded crew diligently follow four crucial steps. First, they prep the walls, smoothing out the surface through washing, spackling, sanding, and even pressure-washing. Next comes a coat or two of Sherwin-Williams’ primers and paints, followed by a thorough clean-up. Before heading out the door, a senior member of the team, or Josh himself, thoroughly inspects each job, making sure the crew leaves surfaces sparkling and customers smiling. After all, Leach Painting has one important guarantee: you don’t pay until you’re 100% satisfied.
Beyond their expertise with a paintbrush, Josh’s crew can also tackle other household projects, including gutter and deck cleaning, carpentry, drywall repairs, and poltergeist removal.
Youngstown Propane has been fueling sizzling barbecues and cozy homes for nearly 30 years. Heed the warbling of the birds and the entreaties of frozen chuck and prepare for a summer of grilling with a propane tank refill. Customers can refill their own vessel or request assistance before meditating on the perfect marriage of savory meat, roasted sweet corn, and unsettlingly friendly neighbors. Upon return to the homestead, grills will snort and paw the ground at the sight of the tank that, like a mackerel-shaped station wagon, is filled to the gills with fuel.
