  1. It’s personalized.
    Unlike with fixed design kits, you can make your Custom Paint by Numbers according to what you like. Adding your own ‘touch’ to the gift makes it extra special, especially in deciding which photo to use for the customized kit. Surprise them with either your favorite photo together, a portrait of their pets, a family photo or their prettiest selfie.

  2. It’s a great pastime hobby.

    With all the fuzz and buzz happening in this world, everyone deserves a break. Custom Paint by Numbers kits are not like the other pastime hobby you know. It provides plenty of benefits to your physical and mental health. To name a few, painting by numbers can improve one’s creativity, brushwork, visual-spatial reasoning and confidence. Moreover, this activity can reduce stress and anxiety and can also promote mindfulness.

  2. Upload the photo of your choice.
    Although you can choose whatever photo you like, we have a couple of suggestions that you may want to consider before uploading your photo:

    - Make sure that the photo is high quality, with good brightness, contrast and sharpness.
    - Since most of the canvas are 16 x 20 cm, it is good to select a photo with a 4:5 aspect ratio. (To see other available size options for the canvas, simply click here.)
    - Select an image with the subject not too far-away from the background. For pet portraits, it is ideal that the photo should be close-up.
    - Make sure that the background isn’t too cluttered.

  3. Leave the rest to us! Once finished, simply pay at the counter and wait for the kit/s to be delivered right at your doorstep.

Tips and Tricks to Make the Best Out of your Custom Paint by Numbers kit:

  1. When painting, start with one color and paint from left to right going from the top and bottom. This direction will help you avoid smudging of the painting onto your hands.
  2. Always keep a paper towel and a cup of water near you. This will be useful when you transition to another color. 
  3. Take care of the brushes by cleaning them immediately after use.
  4. Always close the paint pots that are not in use to prevent them from drying out.
  5. Dip the tip of your brush in the paint, not the whole brush itself. This can save paint and improve precision on the strokes.
