Book Description

October 6, 2005
Paint a beautiful picture . . . the first time you try! What is the fascination with paint by number? Is it the compulsive, intoxicating act of filling in small pools of color? The thrill of creating your own works of art? Perhaps it is that without any lessons or experience, you can paint a masterpiece, just by following the numbers. From ballerinas and the Eiffel Tower, to tug boats and poppies, you'll have your choice of eight different vintage paint by numbers.

Includes:
- 8 paint-by-numbers postcards
- 8 stick-back easels
- 12 different acrylic paints
- Paintbrush
- 48-page booklet

2.0 out of 5 stars printing on canvas boards pale December 5, 2005
Format:Paperback
This would be a great paint by number kit if one could see the outlines of the picture on each board. It is so light you can hardly see the picture and the numbers for painting the masterpieces are completely unreadable. If anyone else has run across this please let Amazon know so they can fix this problem as I love paint by number kits.

I have run across this same problem with the Workman paint by number calendars also and quit buying them.

I will have to send this kit back as it is unusable.

I didn't have a problem with the printing I thought that was fine but the paintings are only about 4"x6" while I was expecting about 12"x20".

1.0 out of 5 stars Just awful! September 14, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are thinking of buying this, please don't! Half the paints in the kit I received are dried up; which sucks, because most of the pictures require you to mix colors together. I started painting the clown face and went to open another paint pot and found it all dried out and then another. I should have listened to the other reviewer on this product and not purchased it....and the pictures are VERY tiny and VERY hard to see.....completely disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small Portraits But Great Quality October 7, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a very cute kit with a good variety of subjects from the Eiffel tower to a rocket in space. The guide included was great at showing what colors are needed for each portrait and what colors you will need to mix. I do think that the quality of the brush could be better and the portraits were a bit smaller than I would have liked. I had to squint quite a lot for some pictures to make sure the right paint got in the right spot but I really had fun with this kit and would buy it again.

This was what my daughter, a paint by number fanatic, requested from Santa. We can't return it to the North Pole, and my daughter is quite upset about the quality of this product. The paints were completely dried up, and you literally need a magnifying glass to read see the lines and read the numbers. The paint brushes are too thin to fit between the lines. I'm not sure why Santa didn't read these reviews (our experience is exactly the same), because I'm sure he would have brought her something else. The $3.40 one from target is much higher quality!
