Have you ever wanted to join an art class or paint in your free time, but the intimidation of an empty white canvas stopped you? Try using a paint-by-number kit. These kits include outlined canvases with color-coded sections, making it the ideal art project for amateur painters. Take a look at how easy it is to follow:
- Create a clean work area, and pour a bowl of water for brush cleaning.
- Work from top to bottom and from largest to smallest section.
- Paint sections that correspond with their numbered paint bottles.
- Let paint dry for several hours.
A few key things to remember? Wash brushes in between color changes, and certain painted areas might need extra time to dry to avoid smudging before moving to the next section. Oh, and if you paint the wrong number by accident or have a dirty brush? No sweat! Allow paint to dry, then paint over; no one will be able to tell. Now that you've got the basics down, keep scrolling for paint-by-number kits that don't require any skill but will leave you feeling like a true artist!
