What is painting by numbers? 

There are no constraints in the field of painting by numbers, and anybody, even a total art novice, can produce a magnificent picture evocative of the works of renowned painters! Simply choose one of the innovative painting by numbers sets from and follow the simple instructions. 

It entails gradually colouring in the pre-printed blank fields on the canvas. The fields are numbered, and there are corresponding numbers on the paint pots, making it simple to discern which colour belongs where... To illustrate, a field designated with the number 1 pairs with a paint likewise labelled with the number 1. Painting by numbers is fun, relaxing, increases fine motor skills as well as focus! 

Begin, and with a little patience and a few hours, you won't be able to take your eyes off your very own masterpiece! Would you have ever said you could achieve something like this before?

Better to paint with a frame or without? 

When placing your order, decide whether you want a framed canvas (with an inner wooden frame) or just the rolled up version. Personally, we recommend ordering the framed version because it will make the entire painting process easier and will allow you to place the completed painting on the wall right away.   


If you are painting a picture for someone as a present, or if you are gifting an entire set, the framed alternative is much more preferable!
