What is a paint by numbers kit?
Painting by numbers is an activity that includes a kit and a canvas with a printed framework for your future painting. Every color is given its own number. You simply follow the pattern, and you’ll be surprised at how elaborate your work of art will be.
How does it work?
1 – Numbers are indicated on each canvas.
2 – Each number represents the color of the provided paint pot on the reference chart
3 – Fill the numbered space with the corresponding numbered color.
4 – Follow the numbers, become the painter!
Is my photo good enough to use?
1 – Make sure the photo is of good quality.
2 – The background shouldn’t be too cluttered.
3 – For family pictures, we don’t recommend more than 5 people if you want to have a good quality paint by number result
4 – High-quality close-ups with good lighting usually give the best results.
5 – Pictures taken inside in the dark or outside against the light are not recommended
We conduct a photo check for every new order we receive and we will email you if we need a different one. It’s best to take matters into your own hands and ensure you upload the best photo you have.
If we do need a new photo from you, this may lengthen your delivery time by a few days. The sooner you respond to our email the better.
Please note that if you refuse to provide a replacement after we have informed you that the original photo may not result in quality canvas art, then we cannot refund you. It’s your responsibility to ensure that you are happy with the photo you provided.
Note that it is the customer’s responsibility to provide a high-quality photo and although we do review orders, it is not our responsibility to chase you for a better photo. Low-quality photos will not result in a high spec design that we show on site. All examples on our website were produced using high-quality photos.
What is in the kit?
- 1x Numbered acrylic paint set (About 24 different colors, depending on the painting)
- 1x Numbered high-quality linen canvas
- 1x set of 3 paint brushes (1x small, 1x medium, 1x large)
- Reference paper and a copy of the canvas so you can follow up the numbers easily.

I ordered multiple products in one order, will they arrive together?
Usually yes, you will receive all items in one parcel but sometimes one piece of art is completed a day or two before the other in the order. In these cases, we ship out the completed artwork in one parcel and then send the other one once it’s finished.
Why my tracking number did not show updates for the past 10 Business Days?
Due to the ongoing Corona Virus, the customs around the world are keeping packages under surveillance for more time than usual because of security reasons especially when the product type is liquid and once they are sure that the package is safe to be delivered they will release it and you will start seeing updates on your order once they’ll do, We hope you’ll understand that it is really out of our control.
Why did I only receive part of my order?
We fulfill orders from multiple locations, so orders of 2+ items may arrive in separate packages and at varying times.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all major debit and credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and more. We also accept PayPal payments.
Why is no one replying to my emails?
During busy periods such as the festive period, sales, and promotions, we receive a huge amount of emails than usual. As such we request that you allow 2-3 days for us to get back to your initial email inquiry.
Note that we operate on a first-in-first-out policy as well as a priority response system.
This means that you should only send 1 email inquiry. Sending a follow-up a day or so later will actually send your email to the back of the queue, which neither of us wants to happen!
