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 can help you find a design 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 pieces to paint! We have trolls, mermaids and motorcycles. We have piggy banks and princess boxes! We have plates, platters and bowls in lots of useful sizes and shapes. We have cookie jars, napkin rings, and picture frames, and more. From small knobs to huge vases, we have it all.

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 you probably won't want to expose your masterpiece to the chipping that comes from repeated trips through the dishwasher.

How much does it cost?
Adults: Buy your bisque piece plus $9.75 studio fee. The price of the bisque includes glazing and firing. Studio fee includes unlimited use of paint, stencils, stamps, our design center and personalized assistance by one of our trained staff. Kids 12 & under: Buy your piece plus $6 studio fee.

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 and stamp 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 I have my birthday party at Color Me Mine?
Yes! We LOVE to party! We have our own party room, invitations, thank you cards, party bags and a helpful staff member to run the whole party if you'd like! Kids love to paint and party at Color Me Mine and each child will love getting a purple ceramic turtle or pink polka-dot ceramic cupcake that they painted at your party, even more!

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.

How long do I have to wait to get my stuff?
Usually a piece is available within five to seven days. If you have painted a really large vase or platter, it may take a little longer.

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. See our class page and kids page for more information.
