Painting By Number Tips
  1. Consider buying a larger paint brush for larger areas.
    The brush that comes with the painting by number kits is suitable for all the areas but you can speed things along with a bigger brush.
  2. Stick to one colour at a time.
    This will help keep track of what you have done and what you still need to do.
  3. Start from top to bottom.
    By going from top to bottom, you will avoid smudging of the colours.
  4. Use a tooth pick, 0 or 00 brush for small areas.
    This will help you achieve better detail in smaller areas than the standard brush.
  5. Leave the mixed colours to last.
    By leaving the mixed colours last and mixing outside of the pots you will avoid contamination and be able to use the standard colours again if you needed. Its recommended to mix on a mixing palette.
  6. Add more of the darkest colour to make your mix darker.
    Sometimes you may need a shade or two darker, this can be achieved by using the darkest colour in your set, Refer to the box illustration for a colour match.
  7. Use transfer paper to copy a design.
    If you want to paint your chosen design on to a canvas or something else this can be achieved with the use of transfer paper and transferring the design to the selected surface.
  8. Consider buying an artist easel.
    This will help keep the board/canvas stable and at the perfect position to paint.
