Paint by Numbers Tips

Paint by numbers is a relaxing and rewarding experience, so make sure you get the most out of your creative journey with these handy tips:

  1. Start in a well lite space and make sure you’re comfortable – paint by numbers canvases can take a little while so relax and enjoy the process.
  2. Allow plenty of time. There’s no need to rush.
  3. Start with the darkest color and gradually move to the lighter colors. This is a great way to learn the basics of painting.
  4. Paint one color at a time. This minimizes brush cleaning!
  5. Start each colour at the top and work your way down – it allows time for the paint to dry before moving onto the next color and reduces accidental smudging.
  6. Wash your brush with warm water before moving to new color.
  7. If needed, wait 5-10 minutes for the paint to dry between colors. No one likes smudging!
  8. Use enough paint to cover the numbers so they can’t be seen. Using too much paint can cause drips and it will also take longer to dry.
  9. Paint up to and just over the lines.
  10. Relax and enjoy your new painting.
