Although leaving one’s artistic mark in unique places signifies smarts and pluck, graffiti artists must contend with hazards including policemen camouflaged as brick walls and disapproving glares from stop signs. Leave your creative imprint on new surfaces from the safety of the inside with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of paint-your-own pottery at Bisque-it Shop in McAllen.
At Bisque-it Shop, daubers of all ages stipple, stripe, and embellish singular designs on their choice of more than 300 paint-ready vessels. Armed with studio-supplied brushes, stencils, and under-glazed paints, guests seek out ceramic soul mates in the form of trinket boxes ($10–$18), dinnerware ($15–$45), or animal figurines ($10–$14) before adorning new best friends with a panchromatic coating. After completing their paint-tinged opus, guests turn works over to Bisque-it Shop’s clay caretakers, who kiln-fire artifacts to preserve designs against the abuses of microwaves, food items, and that bullying Grecian urn from down the block. The shop readies pieces for pick-up in seven days. Bisque-it Shop’s expansive atelier accommodates up to 70 painters at once, and staffers accept reservations for groups celebrating birthdays, bachelorette parties, or the 20th anniversary of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
