If you are a real fan of Painting by Number, you have probably wondered if there is a way to earn a penny on the side from your favorite hobby. Buying Painting by Number can be quite pricey if you do it regularly. It is therefore only natural to wonder if there is a way to recoup your investment.

So, the question is, can you sell the finished Painting by Numbers? Yes, you definitely can! However, there are some aspects you need to consider. With these tips, you can find out if selling a completed Painting by Numbers is for you.

Demand for completed painting by numbers

If you want to make money from your hobby, you need to offer something customers want to buy. Every business – big or small – needs a target audience that is interested in the products. Paintings and artwork generally have a large target market. However, the market for specific products, also called niche products, is somewhat smaller.

Paint by numbers is very popular at local craft fairs where potential buyers can see them in person. Selling online is also a possibility, but it is difficult to take a nice photo where the details come out well.

Legal aspect

Before you think of starting to sell your painting by numbers, there are some legal aspects to consider. According to intellectual property law experts, you are allowed to offer art created in the form of painting by numbers. From the legal aspect, offering completed paintings is similar to selling completed diamond paintings. 

Despite being legal, it is important to add that this is a painting by the number and name of the company where you purchased the package. This helps to avoid claims of deception and/or fraud. 

Before you decide to sell your paintings, you should consider whether you want to do this on a small scale or on a larger scale. If you choose the latter, it is important to set up a legitimate business and register with the Chamber of Commerce.

Make the right choice

Think carefully before you start offering painting by numbers. Having a business, big or small, is hard work and can reduce the sense of relaxation. Then you run the risk of your favorite hobby becoming like work. So consider carefully whether you want to keep work and leisure separate or not. Just because you are good at something does not mean you have to turn it into a business and sell your work. Painting by numbers for fun can also be the perfect reward!

If by now your house is already full of your finished paintings and you have nowhere to put them? Then you need to find something to do with them. Another good option is to give them as gifts to family and friends. Choose a design that suits your recipient’s interests, or create a Painting by Number with your own photo, and make it a gift to remember.
