How does it work? You receive a design that’s pre-labeled with numbers along with some paint. Each color is assigned to a number, and you can just start painting. Here are a few tips to ensure your paintings pop.
So, why so popular? Painting by numbers is great stress relief, anyone can do it, and there are countless designs and levels of difficulty.
Where traditional painting methods can be time-consuming and often intimidating, painting by numbers is relaxing and doesn’t require special equipment. From professional artists to complete newbies, no one gets left out. These kits make the perfect weeknight hobby or group activity, and with such a wide range of styles to choose from, you’ll never paint the same thing twice. Plus, it’s always fun to share your masterpieces on social media.
Though many creators have joined the paint-by-numbers movement, there’s one company we’re excited to put on your radar that’s creating artist-quality and sustainably sourced paint-by-numbers kits. Elle Crée, “She Creates” in French, was founded by Portland illustrator Rachel Austen in late 2016. Her kits range from still lifes to botanicals to inspiring history-makers and include components that are both eco-friendly and locally made.
We LOVE Rachel, her work and her company’s mission, so we’re thrilled to announce the launch of a special paint-by-numbers collaboration between Mary Engelbreit and Elle Crée!
Purchase for you, your friends & family or a sip & paint night! The options are endless.
