Colour Me Mine is a worldwide DIY pottery painting fun studio. It has two studios in Sydney, one is at Summer Hill, the other one is at Crows Nest. I've had a chance to experience the art of fun pottery painting at the Summer Hill studio with my friends. This summer, you can also explore your artist within with a brush working on white ceramics, just flying your imagination and having fun when you are creating your own pieces of artwork.

Choose your ceramic to be painted
There are nearly 100 plain white ceramics of different shapes and sizes that you can choose from at the Summer Hill studio. You can find items for the kitchen, the garden, the office, home decos and even for your lovely pets. If you are looking for some personalized gifts, you will find that there are pieces for everyone. A Disney-cartoon shaped mug for the little Disney fans, a big salad bowl for the cooking lovers, a lovely flower vase for the garden enthusiast. Prices are different depending on the size of each piece, the bigger the piece, the more you pay.

Create and paint your design
If you have trouble creating your design, there are several design and pattern reference books for you to get some inspirations. These books with nearly 22,000 images have been categorized into 5 sections: "Love and friendship", "Plants and Flowers" "Animals and Nature", "People and Pets" and "Mischievous". For those who are not confident at their drawing skills, you can also find a box full of rubber stamps, stencils and sponges to help you to make your painting experience with less effort. Also the helpful staff will get the paint colour for you and are always ready to show you the techniques and answer any questions you have.

In the flow of creation

After you have finished painting, you can leave your artwork to the studio to be glazed and fired for you. Once it is finished, you will receive a call from them and you can go and pick it up.

I have found the whole painting experience is very relaxing and peaceful, I even forgot the time passing by when I totally indulged myself in the creating process. Just bear in mind that the colour will appear stronger than the original version after the ceramics get fired and glazed.

Color Me Mine studio is also an ideal fun venue for special parties, you can book it for a birthday party for the kids or a hen's party for the ladies. There is also a school program offered to children above grade 6. If you need more information about booking, please send them a message on their studio website.
