The main thing to remember is that if you decide to try painting a numbered paining, but are in doubt, then start working with paintings of 2-3 difficulty levels, and if you liked it, you feel your potential, then you can move on to a more difficult level. But according to statistics, most often children start painting from 8-10 years old, and there is no upper limit.
Next, let’s consider the question – what should we do with the finished picture? Simply let it lie in a secluded place for days, letting it dry completely, and then cover the picture with varnish, which often comes in the set with paints and canvas. The main thing when varnishing is to move in one direction, making the smear smooth, almost invisible.
What should you pay attention to when choosing a painting? Having chosen one or another, be sure to open the box in which your set is.
First of all, remember – each picture according to a photo or a already-made should be well stretched on a stretcher. And if the canvas is sagging– the drawing will turn out to be of poor quality.
If the stretcher is disassembled in the box – right on the spot, assemble it. If the grooves do not fit into each other, the stretcher itself is not going to – it is not worth buying such a product.
Be sure to check the presence of paints and brushes in the set, as well as fasteners and the canvas itself with the marking of the drawing. In addition, remember – in each package there is a checklist, on which the entire list of names of the set components are indicated. Just check a few positions and that’s it, so that you don’t have to look for matching paints or missing brushes later.
It is also recommended to check the articles on the box and in the set – this will allow in the future to avoid the need to choose a canvas for the picture or pink shades instead of green paint in the box.
And probably the most important thing is how tightly the jars are closed, whether they will flow during transportation. Or even better – open them and look at their quality. Do they match the declared color, have they dried, and so on.
But if the choice is made correctly – paintings by numbers will become a real gift, and it is a hobby that will stay with you for many years.
