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.

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 the mermaids complain that dishwashing detergent bleaches their hair.

How much does it cost?
Our average price for the pottery is $20. However, we carry pottery lower than $20 in our studio. We make it simple and affaordable for you. You pay the price of the piece plus a studio fee - which covers all the paint and supplies you need to do your art project. Glazing and firing are also included!

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.

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 or a coffee mug. We've even done a bottom print or two! 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 can be rinsde off on kids and clothes with water.

Can you come to my school/office/party?
Yes! We go to your home, schools, restaurants, hospitals, businesses, parks. Plan it indoors or outdoor...we love to party! See our TO GO page for more information. For small parties at your place, we have To-Go painter 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?
Usually a piece is available in 7 working business days. The items can be rushed in 3 days after you finish painting and the rush fee will apply to the service.

Do you have classes?
Our classes are much more fun than the stuff you learned in school. The painting workshop is the third Friday in every month. 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 glass and design a mosaic master piece. See our class page for more information.
