I checked with Tiffany and she said painting platters for our party would be fine. She also explained the auction:
The pottery painted from our Splatters Platters Parties are not included in the auction at Splatters. Since it costs $35 per person, this includes the cost of the pottery, glazing, firing and each person keeps their piece of painted pottery. However, if someone wants to participate in the auction part of Splatters, then they will complete the Artist Information Form and return to me. They can go to the Firefly Studio and choose between 2 styles of platters (styles were chosen by the Art & Auction Chairs) to paint. Since the artist is donating their time to provide something to our auction at Splatters, there is no cost to the artist. All these platters painted by the
artists are included in the silent auction.
