Some more Tips and tricks

The most important thing to remember is that Painting by Number should be relaxing and, of course, fun! Try to take the pressure off your shoulders and exchange it for a sense of accomplishment. The tips we publish on our website are for real artists.

Add a frame to your order

We strongly recommend adding a DIY frame to your order. This is because working on a pre-bound canvas is finer than working on a loose canvas. All our packages can be ordered including a frame. This is a loose frame that you can easily put together; we have described putting together a DIY frame in detail. However, this can sometimes be difficult, which is why we recently started offering the option of ordering a pre-stretched frame. One of our fanatical employees will manually stretch your canvas to the frame! This offers a beautiful result and saves you some tinkering!

Don’t forget to close the paint pots

Acrylic paints can dry out quickly. We strongly recommend closing the lids tightly when you are not using the paint. Has your paint become stiff or dried out? Then adding a drop of lukewarm water can completely restore the creamy texture.

Keep the brushes clean

It is important to clean the brushes properly and keep them clean. Changing colours can cause paint colours to get mixed, which is something you obviously want to avoid! We have described in detail how to clean your brushes in our blog, read the blog here.

Take small breaks

We have described the importance of pausing to combat pain in the back, hands, wrists and tired eyes. Trying to complete your painting in one day can cause many complaints. Pause regularly to avoid these complaints. Do you want to get rid of these complaints? Check here how to get rid of hand and wrist pain and click here to get rid of tired eyes during Painting by Number!

Don’t worry in case of a mistake

We are all human and people happily make mistakes, everyone makes mistakes from time to time. It is not the end of the world if you have filled in the wrong colour in a box. You can let the paint de dry for a while and paint over the mistake later.

Work from top to bottom

Start in the top corners of your canvas and continue to avoid smudging. A simple rule of thumb is, are you left-handed start at the top right, are you right-handed start at the top left.

Have a damp cloth ready

As we mentioned above, it is important to clean brushes properly. To make cleaning easier, we recommend keeping a damp cloth nearby, this can be a cloth wetted with water or a baby wipe. This will help in quick and easy cleaning of the brushes.
