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 artistically challenged. We also have a design computer with thousands of designs that you can transfer onto your pieces and then just paint it in like a coloring book! Our friendly helpful staff would be happy to assist and teach you new techniques.

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. We recommend hand washing and not using the microwave to add to the lifetime of your artwork.

How much does it cost?
How much would you like to spend? Most pieces range from $12 - $20. At Color Me Mine - Encino, we charge you for the pieces that you paint and a studio fee to use our paints, brushes and other supplies, glazing and firing. Kids 15 and under are $8 and adults are $10 for as long as you can stay.

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.
* All Children 18 & Under Must Be Accompanied By Adult.

Do you permit “BYOB” / Bring-your-own-beverage alcohol?
We currently do not have a liquor license, therefore BYOB is not allowed. We'd be happy to setup a To-Go kit if you would like to bring your painting to a place that does allow alcohol.

Do you plan birthday and other parties?
Yes! We offer parties both in our studio or at your location!

How long do I have to wait to get my stuff?
Ceramic pieces available for pick-up in 7 days.

What happens if I don't finish painting before closing?
Don't worry! You can come back to finish your piece anytime. We do require new sitting fee with any return visits. We do not store any unfinished pieces in our studio and all customers required to take their unfinished items home the same day.

We close at our designated times, so keep in mind that most adult and kids painters need on average 1-2 hours. Don't cheat yourself, come early and have fun!
