My FAVORITE Tools (for now...) for Paint by Numbers

Updated: Jun 22

When I began doing paint by numbers about 18 months ago, I didn't think there would be much to it. It's simple, right? You get the kit...you use the brushes...you paint the corresponding number with the corresponding paint. The end...or so I thought!


That was when I started discovering some amazing tools that helped me paint better. They helped my artwork look more realistic; the paint covered better; the brushes were able to fit into tiny spaces; and so much more. I will keep this post brief, because my list of favorites is a lengthy one. I know I will be adding more nifty, helpful tools over time, but for now...here is my favorites video and below are the links to help you find them.
