What Our Customers are Saying about Our Custom Pet Portraits

Fun and Relaxing

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this custom painting of my boyfriend’s dog. I think it turned out great and he loves it! I will be ordering one of my dog next. Everything came extremely well packed. There was a sheet with it that matched the image and numbers on the canvas that came in extremely handy. I looked at several sites doing custom pain by numbers before choosing this one, and know I made the right choice!

My parents cried when I gave them their painting. It came out so beautiful and it was really fun to watch it all come together. Definitely doing this again for my grandparents!!!

At Canvas By Numbers, we've made it easier than ever to create a highly detailed portrait using a beautiful memory of your favorite companion. To start your custom pet canvas process, simply choose the photo you'd like to paint, select the size of your canvas, choose your framing options and then decide how many colors you'd like to include. We offer three options for the colors you'll use to fill in your custom pet painting – standard (up to 24 colors), extra detailed (up to 36 colors) and premium (up to 48 colors). It's really that easy! In no time, you'll receive your complete custom kit with everything you need to begin painting a beautiful portrait that will last you a lifetime.

Create Your Pet Portrait Painting With Our Top-Quality Kits

Now that you've decided what photo you want to paint, you need the supplies to finish the job. Online, you'll find many websites that offer paint by numbers services to create custom pet portraits, but we've always aimed to stand out from the crowd. Many of the services you'll find elsewhere source their kits from cheap manufacturers to focus on making a profit – at Canvas By Numbers, our focus has always been to help people create works of art they'll love forever. You may be able to replicate your custom pet painting using other services, but you won't find our quality anywhere else. Within our custom pet portrait painting kits, you'll receive:

  • Pre-Mixed Paints: Conveniently placed in an organized paint storage box.
  • Hanging Kit: Includes two screws and two non-track hooks.
  • Pre-printed & Numbered Custom Pet Canvas: Made from a 100% finely woven cotton-blend rolled in a protective tube. Your custom pet portrait canvas will arrive free of creases and ready to paint.
  • Set of Standard Brushes: In three sizes — small, medium and large.
  • Reference Print: With the color key and black and white guide of the canvas lines and numbers.
  • Directions Sheet: To ensure your masterpiece reaches its full potential.

You can buy your custom pet portrait Canvas By Numbers kit without a frame, with a DIY frame, or pre-stretched on the frame. With no frame, your canvas will ship in a protective tube with no frame. With the DIY frame, you'll also get four pine wood stretcher bars that you can mount within minutes. With a pre-stretched frame, your canvas is already stretched on the frame and is ready to paint and hang!

With our kits, creating a custom pet portrait painting is hassle-free and great for aspiring painters of all ages.

How Do I Choose a Photo for My Personalized Paint By Numbers Canvas?

The most significant decision you'll have to make is which photo you want to use. To create the best possible canvas to paint by numbers, your own photo should be chosen carefully. For the best results, make sure:

  • You choose an image that's clear and in focus. High-resolution images (1000 x 1000 pixels) work best. If the only photo you have is low resolution, we'll make it work, but the best reproduction comes from a high-resolution image.
  • For portraits, the face is as close as possible to the camera so we can capture all the detail. If it's a group shot, please limit the number of people in the photo to four. Ideally, the subject(s) in the photo should take up at least 70% of the space in the image. (Long-range shots and large groups are more difficult to convert successfully.)
  • If you have a complex photo, select a larger-sized canvas. For example, a canvas that's 24" x 32" will fit more lines and numbers than one that's 12x16''. While we can convert your photo to any sized canvas, a detailed photo will come out much better on a larger canvas. If you have a family portrait, we recommend a canvas that's at least 16" x 20". Picking the smallest canvas (12" x 16") will reduce the amount of detail.
  • Choose a photo that has neutral lighting, ideally one in which the light comes from the camera angle. A vibrant background can blur details. Also, avoid shadows, particularly on faces and skin, as they can darken the color palette. Dark pictures can also affect the colors. And if your image used filters or special color lighting, keep in mind this can skew the color palette, too.

See our complete list of guidelines for choosing a photo for your paint-by-numbers custom canvas.

What Size is My Custom Paint by Number Canvas?

There are six sizes for you to choose from. The larger the canvas, the better the detail and the easier it will be to paint:

  • 30x40cm (12"x16")
  • 30x50cm (12"x20")
  • 40x40cm (16"x16")
