1 - The first step to finding the best paint by number kit is the painting itself. Choose a painting that speaks to you. A painting that you love. Paint by number kits that are licensed from the original artists are almost always the way to go. When companies pay the original artist a royalty for exclusive use of their original artwork, the company is given the high-resolution image to make a quality paint by number kit. They can make a highly detailed painting with colors that match the original artwork almost exactly. Many companies steal the images from the websites of the artists or other paint by number companies. These counterfeit paintings will have colors that are vastly different from the original painting and are usually made using subpar materials. So, the adage ‘you get what you pay for,’ certainly applies to paint by number kits!
2 - Some paint by number kits are more complex and take more time to complete than others, with lots of colors and many small sections. Don’t let this scare you into not trying an image that you would love to paint. There is no way to do a paint by number wrong, and with a little time and patience, you can create a beautiful painting.
3 - Check to see what is included in a paint by number kit before you buy it. All the reputable companies will have videos, pictures, and a social media presence that will allow you to see exactly what you are purchasing. The best paint by number kits will give you all you need to complete it, including the linen canvas, paint, brushes, and a paper guide to follow along with. Many will also offer a framed or unframed version of their kits. The counterfeit companies mentioned above might be less complete and could be missing some of these key items.
4 - The best paint by number kits have a great company behind them. You should be able to contact the company by email, telephone, Live chat, or social media to ask questions about their specific artwork. They will be able to confirm that the artwork is licensed (with credit and royalties given to the original artists). These more reputable companies will also be able to guide you when choosing paintings that are more difficult or easier depending on your preference.
