For the artistic and not quite so artistic alike, Color Me Mine can be an outlet for stress as well as a source for personally painted pottery pieces. At this locally owned franchise, kids, adults, teens, and pretty much anyone can create something unique, and often times practical.

With locations around the world, we’re lucky enough to have two locations in the Rochester area! There is a Webster Color Me Mine, and a Pittsford Color Me Mine. One owner operates the two of them, so it’s easy to go back and forth between the stores.

At Color Me Mine you pay a studio fee plus the price of the pottery. The studio fee is $7 for kids (12 & under) and $10 for adults. Pottery prices range from $1 beads with letters on them, to as much as $70 for large platters, but the average price for a piece is $20. It takes one week from the day that you finish your masterpiece for it to be ready for pick up.

Kids often gravitate towards pottery like piggy banks, dinosaurs, fairies, and Disney characters, and often enjoy letting their creative side shine. But Color Me Mine also offers a large assortment of plates, mugs, and bowls that can easily be transformed into beautiful pieces of art.

Say you are furnishing your apartment and want special light switch covers that you are searching for in every store without luck, you could go to Color Me Mine and design them exactly the way you want. Or if you just don’t know what gift would be perfect for your friends’ birthdays you could go in and paint them each a monogrammed plate in their favorite colors.

The staff at Color Me Mine is pretty friendly and always willing to help you brainstorm or help you with fun techniques like using bubbles and lace. Painters really seem to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and the opportunity to be creative. You never know, you might just have a hidden talent that involves painting garden gnomes and teapots!

Hint: Check out their monthly calendar for daily specials that can help you save on the studio fee or pottery price. For example, most Thursdays are “Ladies’ Night Out,” and ladies get 20% off their purchase and can bring in wine and food to enjoy the evening!
