Everything You Need to Know About Paint-by-Number, When was the first time you were introduced to the term “paint-by-number”? Maybe you were a child, or perhaps it was more recently. In case you haven’t heard of it, paint-by-number is a painting system that delineates a picture into shapes, and marks each individual shape with a number that corresponds with a paint color. Aspiring artists fill in each shape with the called-for paint color until all spaces are filled and a picture has emerged. (Cue the how-did-I-do-that response.) Painting-by-number is truly as easy as it sounds, which is precisely why it gained incredible popularity several decades ago, and continues to be a favorite pastime.
Tips for Painting-by-Number Like a Pro, The beauty of painting-by-number is that one doesn’t have to be an artist, or even be artistic, to make the system work. When executed as the directions command, a beautiful piece of art will result. A love for art and a somewhat steady hand are the only prerequisites to painting-by-number successfully. While the paint-by-number system is extremely straightforward, there are certain tips that will make the experience better and the product lovelier. Here are a few tips to make your creation outstanding. Before you begin, clear a flat area. Have a cup of water and paper towel handy to clean brushes. Clean brushes when they start to get all gunked up. Make sure the tops are completely closed when you’re done with them to prevent drying. Try working from top to bottom. Paint with the lightest OR darkest colors first. ThoughtCo. said, “Start with either the darkest color and end with the lightest or the other way around, leaving any segments that have a mixed color (double number) till last. The reason I recommend doing the colors in sequence from dark to light (or the other way around) is that this helps you learn a little about the tone and chrome of colors.”
Kids love activities that allow them to be creative, and coloring is arguably one of the most popular artistic pastimes for young children. Research has shown that children enjoy numerous developmental benefits when they participate in arts and crafts, and while coloring on its own can lead to a variety of educational lessons, color by number activities are more advanced and provide enhanced learning opportunities. By better understanding some of the most important lessons that these fun-filled activities will teach your child, you can find ways to incorporate these fun-filled games into his daily activities.
