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 inexperienced artist. 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.

What can I paint?
We have over 400 different pieces to paint.. We have figurines, banks, plates, platters and bowls in lots of useful sizes and shapes. We have cookie jars,canisters, 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. Always Non-Toxic, Always Lead Free

How much does it cost?
Our average pieces range $12-$20. In addition to the cost of the piece you choose to paint there is a studio fee which covers the paints, glazing, firing and supplies.

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. Larger groups may want to call to make a reservation, but small groups and walk-ins are welcome any time.

What can kids do at Color Me Mine?
We can amuse children of all ages, including infants! You can paint your baby's feet (we even do bum prints) ; or your children's hands on a platter, a vase or a coffee mug. Even the youngest child likes to play with brushes, sponges and paints. Finger painting on pieces (but not on employees) is allowed and encouraged. Once glazed and fired, child painted items often appear to have a marbleized effect.

Let them have a go at it... The paints rinse off the kids and their clothes with water!

Can you come to my school/office/party?
Yes! We go to public places like 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?
Absolutely. We give the best parties that you've ever seen. We can accommodate parties large and small. You bring the cake, the snacks, the drinks and the fun. We provide the place, the staff and everything you'll need to create your own masterpiece. See our party page for more information. We can accommodate your group for whatever reason you have to gather!

How long do I have to wait to get my stuff?
Usually a piece is available within seven days. Around holiday times the wait could be a little longer.

Do you have discounts? Coupons? Specials?
Yes, during the school year we have discounted studio fees during the week.

No, we do not participate in coupons. We strive to offer a quality experience at a fair price. By discounting studio fees during the week we are able to offer a discounted price to customers during times when business is typically slow, seats are available, and no other events are taking place. Discounoting prices during busy times to bring in painters we cannot accommodate comfortably or attend to adequately compromises the experience for our guests and sets us up for failure.

Yes. We offer specials in addition to the discounted studio fees. These specials are usually unadvertised in studio discounts available for a limited time.
