Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is so special about Plaster Fun Time?

A: That could be a long answer, but most importantly Plaster Fun Time is special because we focus on kids and making them feel special, fulfilled and successful. We use plaster, not ceramic or clay, because the material is easy to work with and our finishes dry immediately. You can take your piece home that same day!

Q: How much does a visit cost?

A: It depends what piece you pick – we have a wide variety of piece sizes, themes and types. We charge only for the piece that you choose and everything our customers need to make their own special masterpiece (including as much paint as you want) are all included in the price. Our pricing starts at $12.99 for a wide selection from our “Red Wall”.

Q: How long does it take / how long can I stay?

A: You can keep working on your piece for as long or as little time as you wish! If you run out of time when a store is closing, no problem! We will stamp your piece and you can bring it back at any time… to any Plaster Fun Time store.

Q: Do I need a reservation?

A: You never need a reservation to visit Plaster Fun Time as a walk-in painter.

Q: Is Plaster Fun Time ever too busy to get in?

A: No, our stores are big with lots of room to host birthday parties and walk-ins. Naturally, vacation days can be busy so we recommend visiting us early when we open or a few hours before closing time.

Q: Are the materials non-toxic and washable?

A: All of our paints are non-toxic and wash easily off of hands and hair. However, our paint does not wash out of clothing. We provide smocks for every child who paints at Plaster Fun Time.

Q: What about allergies? My child has a food allergy.

A: All of our pieces, paints, and materials are free from food allergens (nuts, whey, lactose, etc). For non food allergens, please inquire and we will be happy to help! Of course we are a public facility which others do bring food, so for extreme cases, please use caution as appropriate.

Q: Do you sell items like mugs and bowls?

A: Our shapes are made of plaster (not ceramic), therefore our pieces do not get fired in a kiln. We create the shiny finish with a polyurethane spray that creates the appearance that it has been fired, but they are not suited for use with food or water.

Q: Do you have classes to instruct children?

A: No. Unlike other stores which offer instruction, Plaster Fun Time is designed to let kids “paint it their way” to make her or his own masterpiece. Our philosophy is to allow children the freedom to paint their own way. While our staff is there to make children familiar with the materials, we believe kids are happiest when they use their own creativity.
