What is Color Me Mine?
Color Me Mine is a paint-it-yourself ceramics store. It is a friendly place where you create your artwork on the ceramic piece of your choice. 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 and lots of other tools 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 banks, boxes, dolphins, frogs, mermaids, fairies, dinosaurs, cars, frames, candle holders, holiday items, and princesses! We have plates, platters, mugs 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 pieces range from $5(ornaments&eggs) to $200 (for that detailed chess set!). Our studio fee is $10.00 or for children 12 years and under it is $7. It is a flat rate - good all day. We do not charge by the hour.

Can I bring my friends, co-workers, pets?
Of course! The more the merrier. We invite you to have Rover's paw prints captured on a picture frame or even his dog bowl! 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.

Can I have my party at your studio?
Yes! We can host parties with a minimum of 8 party goers. Our party room can be used for birthdays, team-building, bridal showers or just to celebrate a team victory. Feel free to bring pizza or anything else you'd like. We'll take care of serving and clean-up. Check out the Parties Tab on the left for pricing.

How long do I have to wait to get my stuff?
Usually a piece is available within 7 days - but sometimes sooner. Around holiday times the wait could be 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. You can make tile tables and mirrors too! See our class page for more information.
