Distelfinks Paint By Number Kit from ArtYouCraft
Pros: Gorgeous, and unique kit
Cons: Not a single one!
Isn’t this picture adorable? It’s a paint-by-number craft kit from http://www.artyoucraft.com. This adorable pair of love birds is called “Distelfinks” and is available in 8 different color combinations. It’s just one of many designs available on their website. Take a look, there’s something there for everyone!
What makes these kits different from the normal paint-by-number kits? Well, the main difference is that you’re painting on wood, not a canvas. So when you’re done, you have a sturdy piece of art that can hang on a wall, or lie flat on a table. Use the varnish included in the kit to make it shine!
The other difference is that some of the designs have spots where you don’t paint anything. You allow the wood to show through in its natural beauty. This particular picture doesn’t have any un-painted spots, but others do. For instance the Wheel Of Hearts has unpainted wheels and spokes on the sides.
The kit includes everything you need. In this case, there are 10 canisters of paint. 9 bright colors and black, for touch-up work. The paints are high-quality acrylics. Easy to use, and easy to wash. You also get two paintbrushes, a paper template that tells you where each color goes, sandpaper, a hanger, and clear instructions. In fact, the instructions are some of the best I’ve seen in kits of this type. They fully explain how to paint the picture, care for the brushes and paints, varnish the completed project, and hang it.
Teens through adults will enjoy this project. Even some kids might enjoy it, but you’ll have to help them touch up any spots where they go outside the lines, and maybe help them with some of the smaller areas where it takes a bit of steady hand.
I like how mine came out, and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. The price for the kit is fair, given everything that comes with it, and the website’s customer service has been outstanding. I highly recommend you take a look at http://www.artyoucraft.com if you enjoy paint-by-number kits.
