I think the last time I did pottery painting was probably in 2011. I remember painting a shot glass because that’s how much a 14-year old Demi could afford, haha. Biltmore Fashion Park recently reached out to me asking if I would be interested in coming into Color Me Mine. For those who don’t know, my dad’s family just recently moved to Arizona in the middle of this year. I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to take my three little brothers to.
Color Me Mine
I jumped at the idea and immediately said YES. The last time I went to pottery painting, I had so much fun so I knew my family would have fun too. At first, my dad didn’t want to participate – he said he was “too old” for this. Turns out, he was the most diligent with his artwork out of all of us, haha.
They had so many potteries for us to chose from. Mugs, plates, figures, you name it! We all chose a piece that would be useful in our daily life. For me, I decided to go with a plain mug because I can drink coffee out of! My dad chose a pineapple container that he’s going to store sugar in. My stepmom decided on an apple plate, and my little brothers chose mugs and a container to store writing utensils in.
Once you have chosen your selected potteries, we would then choose colors we were going to paint with. Then you start painting! John (I believe who is the owner) was super helpful in choosing colors and what to paint, etc.
It was so much fun spending our Sunday at Color Me Mine. One of my brothers who is usually rowdy was dead quiet. He was so focused on his piece. I thought that was hilarious. When we were done painting, they took our pieces and gave us a date on when to pick it up. They fire it to set in the paint and then add a clear glaze to it so it’s safe to eat and use at the dining table!
These are all of our pieces before baking it and adding the clear glaze.

This is what our pieces turned out after being fired! The colors were a lot more vibrant and we were just amazed!
