Painting at your place instructions

Prepare your painting space at your place:

- Set up in a well-lit area so you can clearly see your painting grid.

- Lay a tablecloth or brown paper down on your table to prevent any accidental spills on your work surface, unbox your kit and lay out your canvas, paints, and brushes. 

- Set up a cup of water (for washing your brushes in between colours) and some paper towels to dry off the brush after cleaning.

- Before commencing your painting, it’s a good idea to capture a clear image on your phone of the number reference sheet included in your kit just in case it gets lost.

- This reference sheet will be handy for identifying challenging numbers on the canvas.

- Set the mood - pop on an audiobook or some music.

- Remember, don't be too harsh on yourself if you don’t paint completely within the lines! Painting is about enjoyment rather than perfection.

- Take it slow and enjoy the process.


1. Match the paint pots with the numbers on the canvas

Apply each colour to its respective number section, allowing for creative freedom without becoming overly concerned about strict line adherence. Utilise the smaller brushes for intricate or compact sections. Remember to thoroughly cleanse your brush between colour changes to prevent mixing.

Top tip: Don’t leave brushes in a cup of water for too long as this may fray the bristles.  

2. Start with the lightest colours

We recommend to start painting with the lightest colours first as light colours are

easier to cover if you accidentally paint over them with darker colours later.

If the background is a light colour, however, leave this till last.

Top tip: Use the paint inside the lid of your pottles first.

3. Focus on sections and allow each layer to dry in between coats

Some sections will need layering, especially the lighter colours. Allow each layer to fully dry before applying the next to prevent unintended colour blending. We recommend starting at the top of the painting and working your way down to prevent smudging.  Rather than tackling the entire canvas immediately, focus on smaller sections. Small brush strokes are best, working gently and slowly.

Apply the paint generously. There is enough paint to add additional layers of each colour and

make your painting stand out more with bolder, smoother colours and fix streaky areas.

Top tip: If the paint is a little thick just add a drop of water to thin it slightly.
