Quite challenging with all the whites. But still satisfying! Quality canvas and paints make it a pleasure.
Canvas is good quality. Received in good condition and in a timely manner. However. I think in explanation you should let shoppers know they have to be up to painting everything at least twice in order to cover up the numbers. Still working on it.
I haven't started mine but i ordered 3 and they were not marked on the outside? I couldn't tell what was what unless i unrolled them all so labeling them woukd be a great idea...cant understand why that wasn't thought about?
The canvas is very well printed. The subtle shadings do help to find all of each color.
It would be helpful if on large color areas, the number were repeated a few times.
The paints are nice quality and flow well.
Surprisingly, the brushes are good quality - the smallest one is perfect for the very fine detail work that this painting requires!
It seems that some areas, usually some of the most miniscule, have no number. I will leave those till the end and fill them with whatever color makes sense.
Also, some areas are so small that numbers don't fit inside them - can be tricky if you cover up half of a number when painting an adjacent area.
The tiny tubs can be hard to open, esp. for 90+-year old hands.
I keep a spray bottle handy and occasionally spray teh open tub with one shot of the fine mist in order to keep the paint from drying out, then once more when I close it up. (Don't overdo this!!)
I WISH that the folks at Canvas By Numbers would provide us with an online view of the unfilled canvas.
This would help enormously in zooming in on a particularly detailed area, or one that we have painted over and can no longer see the numbers (or painted over part of a number that was too big for its space!).
I keep my laptop nearby with the finished painting open so that I can zoom in on that if needed while painting.
Make smaller paintings available - 16x20, with this level of detail, is way too big and takes too long. (I know, that is a very subjective thing - that's why you ought to make different sizes available.)
Overall, I am enjoying hte experience a great deal. I am a pretty decent painter in my own right, but I find a real appeal in the very regimented process of filling out a PBN painting. I look forward to completing it, and then working it a bit more to "make it my own".
This is my first paint-by-numbers in oh, probably 40 years!! Bought it for my 97 year-old mom, but since it's so large, my sister and I wound up helping a lot.
I'll upload pictures once I've finished.
I received my paint by number in the mail but I have not started painting it yet. The quality looks great though! Only downside is it took forever to come. Although I ordered it in April and the shipping information said it would arrive in May or June, it did not arrive until July. I ordered through Etsy.
Hi, Cameron! Thank you so much for your review! We're glad you like the product!
Apologies for the long wait. The pandemic affected many shipments and caused huge delays in some April/May orders. Those issues are now resolved so shipping times are back to normal.
Let us know if need anything else and we will be more than happy to assist. Stay safe!
