Paint By Numbers Tips and Hacks for Beginner

Buy a kit with Frame

We highly recommend getting an Artwork with a DIY frame. Because it is easy to work with a pre-framed painting canvas.
Most of our Paint by numbers kits come with a frame option. If you don’t find any frame option then you can buy a frame from here.

Keep the brushes Clean

You should clean the brushes when you switch from one color to another of your paint by number. If you don’t wash the brush then two colors may overlap each other.
Our painting colors dry very quickly and can ruin your brush if you don’t wash it.
You should keep a water bottle and a clean cloth near you to wash the brush every time.

Close the Paint Lid

As we already mentioned earlier that our paint dries very quickly. We suggest you close the paint lid when you are not using it.

If you think a color gets a little bit dry you can add a little bit of water to restore its creamy texture.

Don’t worry if you fill in the Wrong color  

Making a mistake is human nature so you don’t need to worry if you filled in the wrong color. We suggest you wait for some time and let the color get dry.
Now fill the right color in the box and let it dry if you still can see the wrong color we suggest you add one more layer of the color.

Take Breaks while Painting  

If you are a beginner at Paint by number, we suggest that you should not complete it in one go. Do it in parts because you will enjoy it more every time.
Doing it in one go can give you pain in the back or a headache. So we suggest you complete it in parts.
We suggest you follow these paint by number tips.

Start with Dark Color or background

It’s my personal suggestion that you should paint one color at a time and start with the background color that is dark most of the time.
This will help you to get an idea of the painting and you will get an outline of the painting.
By painting with a single color you don’t need to wash the brush frequently as we suggested in the earlier part of the tutorial.

Keep the work Area Clean and dry

Having a clean environment will increase your interest in the painting and you can focus on it properly.
We suggest you cover the whole area with a newspaper so no dust or other particles will be there to make your canvas dirty.

Start from the top of the canvas

Start from the top of your painting canvas and continue downwards to avoid any smudging.
Please prefer the right or left corner according to your personal preference. If you are left-handed start from the top right corner. If you are right-handed Start from Top left.

Don’t apply A lot of colors

Please don’t put a lot of color on each section of the canvas because the canvas may not absorb a thick layer of Paint and this can cause smudging.

Add some water if you feel dryness in color  

The pigment of the colors provided by us contains a thick color so we suggest you add a little bit of water before applying.
This will help you to fill up the color easily. But please don’t add a large amount of water.

Have a Wet Piece of Cloth near you

As we already suggested that your brushes need to clean when you change the color that you want to fill up on the canvas.
To make this take more easy and convenient we suggest you have a wet towel near you. This will help you to clean the brushes quickly.

Have Multiple size brushes  

With each Painting kit, PaintingsCart sends 3 brushes of different sizes. We suggest you use all of them.
Due to laziness people just use a single brush for the whole painting and in this way, they mix up the colors in the small boxes.
Please go with the bigger brush in the big section and go with a small brush in the smaller section.

Love your Painting art

You need to get attached emotionally, Physically, and mentally to your painting.
This will help you to complete your painting with happiness and this will help you to reduce more stress.
