Frequently Asked Questions . . .


What is Color Me Mine?
Color Me Mine is a friendly place where you can paint pottery. Whether you are 5, 55, or 105, we can help bring out the artist in you! Everything is non-toxic & lead-free. Paint easily washes out with water and does not stain.

What can I do at Color Me Mine?
We have over 600 different pieces to paint - there is a variety of plates, platters, bowls, cookie jars, mugs, vases, picture frames and tons more. We have pieces for kids, including an extensive choice of banks, boxes, and figurines. We also try to keep up with the holidays by having different unique holiday items to paint.

How much does it cost?
Studio fee + ceramic piece. There is a studio fee of $9 for painters 10 and older, and $6 for painters 9 and under. What is a studio fee you wonder? It is a flat rate that covers the time, paint, materials, the glazing and firing. We have a range of items starting at $3 and topping at $110, there is something for everyone.

Do I need reservations?
No! We are a walk-in studio. Painters are welcome any time during our studio hours. We will take reservations for parties of 6 or more painters, otherwise we do not take reservations. We seat painters until 1 hour before closing.

Can I use the things I paint?
Yes! All our paints are non-toxic, our glaze is lead free and every thing is therefore food-safe. They are dishwasher safe as well but we recommend handwashing.

When do I get to take my projects home?
We are a completely handmade process. We need 7 days to glaze and fire your pieces. We do have a RUSH option, for $10 your order can be handled feverishly and ready for pick up in 4 days.

Does Color Me Mine do Parties?
We have several party packages for events at the studio, beginning at $15/guest. See our "Parties" page for more information. We also travel, see our "To Go" page for details.

Where can I park?
We are located in the Center of downtown Summit. Our maroon awning is a standout feature on the block. There is street metered parking and various convenient parking lots around our cozy studio.

What if I don't have time to paint, can someone do it for me?
Yes! We have painters on staff who can paint almost anything for a $25 hourly rate. Custom work takes time, plan ahead, as the 7 day turn around does not apply, we appreciate 2 wks notice prior to your desired pick up date.

Does Color Me Mine have gift cards?
Yes! Drop by the studio and pick up the perfect gift for your loved one. Gift cards are accepted at all participating Color Me Mines and they do not expire!

What happens if I don't finish painting before closing?
Don't worry! You can come back to finish your piece anytime with no additional studio fee charge (unless of course, you start a new project).

We close at our designated times, so keep in mind that most adult painters need on average 1.5-2 hours. Don't cheat yourself, come early!

How long does it take to paint?
We have noticed that on average, children 5 years and under use anywhere from 30-60 minutes to paint depending on complexity and attention span of the painter. 6 years - 12 years about 1 hour. Teenagers + older usually paint between 1.5-2 hours.

Obviously these are just estimates, it all depends on the individual. The other day a 4 year old painted for almost 2 hours! And one adult came back three days in a row to finish her fabulous piece!
