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?
"How much do you have? We have pieces as inexpensive as four dollars. Prices vary depending on the item you choose to paint. We have a wide variety of pieces under $20, including figurines, banks & boxes for kids as well as dinnerware, bowls and mugs. Our larger items such as platters & pasta bowls are a bit higher and vary in price depending on size/shape. In addition to the piece you choose to paint, we have a sitting fee of $10.00/person. (Check out our Events page for specials & discounts!) There is no time restriction, you may stay as long as you like and there is no additional glazing or firing fees.. Almost everything in the store is under thirty-five dollars. (That vase the size of an elephant may be a bit more)."

"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 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."

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?
It takes about 7 days for us to glaze & fire your pieces. Around holidays and other gift-giving times the wait could be a little longer. In a hurry? Our rush fee is $5.00

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. We can even teach you how to build a fountain. See our class page for more information."
