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, sponges and stamps for the art-impaired. We have a design center, and a friendly helpful staff to teach you new techniques. We also have a design computer with thousands of designs that you can transfer on to your pieces and paint-by-numbers!

What can I paint?
There are 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, cookie as well as jars, flower pots, and a large assortment of banks. 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?
We have pieces as inexpensive as two dollars. Our studio fee is a flat rate of $10.00 per sitting for adults and $8.00 per sitting for kids 12 and under, but check out our calendar for our specials of the week! 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 to accomodate groups of 20 people.

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. We have high chairs for the youngest (so Mom's hands are free).

Can you come to my school/office/party?
Yes! We go to schools, restaurants, hospitals, businesses, and 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. More information is available in the "TO GO" heading on our website.

Do you plan birthday and other parties?
Party planning is one of our favorite things! We have a party room that can accommodate large groups of painters (up to 25). Whether it's a birthday, graduation, baby or bridal shower or anniversary, we can help you plan a fabulously good time! Want to present a slide show? We can even help you do that. Our party room has a screen, projector and laptop hook-up designed especially for your presentation needs.

How long do I have to wait to get my stuff?
Usually a piece is available within four to five days. Around the holidays the wait can be a little longer.

Do you have classes?
Our next series of classes will begin in June. New classes are held each month. Each class is a two-week session. Registration and class information can be found at www.yourcsd.com.
