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!
You choose a piece of pottery and the colors you wish to use (over 50 to choose from).
Paint and decorate your piece - no art experience needed! You can browse through our idea books. Draw, or sponge, or stencil, or whatever you want! Feel free to sketch your design with a pencil - all pencil marks disappear after firing.

When you are finished painting, we take care of the rest - cleaning, glazing, and firing. Your art piece will be ready for pickup in just a few days.

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, flower pots, 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. Not suggested for diswasher and microware.

How much does it cost?
How much do you have? We have pieces as inexpensive as two dollars. Our studio fee is a flat rate of $10 per sitting for adults and $8 per kids 12 and under,and you can paint as long as you want...all day if you'd like! but check out our calendar for our specials of the week! Almost everything in the store is under thirty-five dollars.
If you didn't finish your piece and need to come back, there will be a new studio fee on your next visit. Please remember to keep your receipts for proof of purchase.

Can I bring my own pottery or item from other stores?
I am sorry, No you can't brng other items or pottery not purchased from our studio for us to glaze and fire. We have the right to refuse the item. Proof of purchase is required if you purchased ahead of time and return to paint here at our studio.

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. 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.
