A beginner’s guide
HOW TO PAINT BY NUMBERS
1. SPREAD OUT THE CANVAS
Spread out the canvas in the kit, and cover the surroundings with old newspapers or plastic wrap for example.
If the canvas HAS SOME WRINKLES ON IT and it bothers you, you can iron the canvas with low heat & Spray bottle of water. the canvas is high-quality linen, and you can easily make it perfectly wrinkle-free by ironing! just make sure you iron it before you start painting.
2. PICK A numbered COLOR
all of our kits come with pre-numbered cans of paint. the colors in these cans are exactly the ones you need for specific areas in the painting. each can has a number on top of it.
the best way for a beginner to start is by choosing a light color first. that way you can practice working with the brush, and if you go a bit over the lines, you can easily hide those mistakes with darker colors later.
3. MATCH THE NUMBERS
once you have chosen a color with a number, simply start painting areas in the canvas that are marked with that same number. just match the numbers on the can with the numbers in the canvas.
if you want to take a break we recommend closing the lid of the paint can. the paints are water-soluble acrylics, which means that they are very safe to use for everyone. On the other hand in order to keep them nice and fluid, you shouldn't let them dry for too long.
4. REPEAT & ENJOY
when you are done with one whole number, carefully rinse your brushes, pick the next number & enjoy!
When you are done for the day, just remember to wash your brushes carefully, so that they are nice and fresh whenever you'd like to continue your masterpiece.
we would advise not to throw out any paints until you are done with the entire painting. this way you can add extra color after the areas have dried, and fill in areas you might have missed the first time around.
with that, we wish you relaxing times with your paint by numbers kit!
