What is Color Me Mine?
Color Me Mine is a friendly place where you can create your own artwork on the pottery piece of your choice. Whether you are 5, 25, 55, or 105, we can help bring out the artist in you!

Do I have to be an artist to paint my own pottery? I can't draw a straight line!
No! We have stencils and rubber stamps for the art-impaired. We also have a design computer with thousands of designs that you can transfer on to your pieces and paint-by-numbers! We have a design center, and a friendly helpful staff, to teach you new techniques, and we have classes to teach you everything from painting grapes and flowers, to building your own working indoor fountain!

What can I paint?
We have over 400 different pieces to paint. We have dolphins, frogs, mermaids and other aquatic life. We have plates, platters and bowls in lots of useful sizes and shapes. We have cookie jars, napkin rings, and even a miniature claw foot bathtub. From small knobs to huge vases, we have it all. If we don't have what you're looking for, let us know. Our vendors have thousands of pieces available.

Can I use this stuff?
Yes! All our paints are non-toxic, lead free, and are food-safe. They are dishwasher safe as well, although we do recommend hand washing to preserve the pieces.

How much does it cost?
How much do you have? We have pieces as inexpensive as five dollars. Our studio fee is a flat rate of $9 per sitting for adults and $6.00 per sitting for kids 10 and under. Almost everything in the store is under thirty-five dollars. (That vase the size of an elephant may be a bit more).

Can I bring my friends, co-workers, pets?
Of course! The more the merrier. However pets more active than turtles or goldfish must remain at home. We have a special party room for groups.

What can kids do at Color Me Mine?
We can amuse children of all ages, including infants! You can paint your baby's feet, or your children's hands on a platter, a clock, or a coffee mug. We've even done a bottom print or two! (We paint the bottom and you change the diaper!) Even the youngest child likes to play with brushes, sponges and paints. Finger painting on pieces (but not on employees) is allowed and encouraged. The paints rinse off the kids and their clothes with water.

Can you come to my school/office/party?
Yes! We go to schools, restaurants, hospitals, businesses, parks. Plan it indoors or out...we love to party! See our to go page for more information. For small parties at your place, we have To-Go Kits available. Having a large party? One of our staff members can come and run a party wherever you are.

Do you plan birthday and other parties?
Yes! We go to schools, restaurants, hospitals, businesses, parks. Plan it indoors or out...we love to party! See our to go page for more information. For small parties at your place, we have To-Go Kits available. Having a large party? One of our staff members can come and run a party wherever you are.

How long do I have to wait to get my stuff?
It takes one week for the firing process to be complete and for you stuff to be packed up and ready to be picked up.

Do you have classes?
Our classes are much more fun than that boring stuff you learned in school. We will show you how to paint grapes and other fruit, vegetables, flowers, bugs, stripes, plaids, and borders, and many other things. We can even teach you how to paint on canvas. See our promotions page for more information.

Can you custom make something for me?
Yes! Of course, we prefere that you come and make the piece yourself and enjoy all that our studio has to offer. But we do have staff that can make that perfect piece for you. The artist fee is $25/hour (not including the cost of the bisque).
