While your repeating design may take a bit longer to design than a traditional paint-by-numbers kit, it should capture the iconic styles found in the beginner-friendly technique: full opacity, crisp solid line work, clearly defined areas of color and a simplified take on your subject matter.


Overview

Are you ready for a blast from the past? First invented in 1950, paint-by-numbers kits took the arts-and-crafts industry by storm when they guaranteed a masterpiece even on your first attempt! Please remember to color your design in fully and leave the black and white only designs for our coloring book challenges!
