Choose a photo to turn into a paint by numbers masterpiece
Now that you’ve got your paint by numbers kit, it’s time to choose a photo to turn into your own masterpiece! Here are a few tips to help you pick the perfect pic:
- Choose a subject that you’re passionate about
Whether it’s a landscape that takes your breath away or a portrait of your favourite person, picking a subject that you’re passionate about will help you stay motivated and invested in the project.
- Consider the level of difficulty
Not all paint by numbers kits are created equal! If you’re a beginner, it might be wise to choose a photo with fewer colours and simpler details. On the other hand, if you’re feeling confident, you could opt for a more complex image.
- Find a photo with good lighting
Good lighting is essential for a successful paint by numbers project. Avoid low-light photos or those with harsh shadows, as they can be difficult to work with. Instead, look for images with even, natural lighting.
With these tips in mind, you’re ready to choose the perfect photo for your paint by numbers masterpiece!
Find a template for the specific painting you want to create
Once you have a specific painting in mind that you want to create, it can be helpful to find a template or reference image to use as a starting point. This can give you a better idea of the composition and colour scheme you want to use, and help you plan out your painting ahead of time.
There are plenty of online resources that offer free templates or reference images for paintings, so do a quick search to see what’s available. You can also look for tutorial videos on YouTube or other websites for step-by-step instructions on how to create a specific type of painting.
Once you have a template or reference image, print it out or pull it up on your computer screen so you can reference it as you start painting. Follow the general guidelines of the template, but don’t be afraid to make changes or experiment as you go. After all, this is your painting and you should make it your own!
Print out the template and tape it to your photo
Now that you have your photo and template printed out, it’s time to get started! Tape the template to your photo, making sure that all of the little circles are lined up. Once you have the template in place, start tracing around the outside with a pencil.
You don’t need to be too precise – remember, we’re going for a sketchy look! Just make sure that you get the general shape of the object. Once you’re happy with your tracing, carefully remove the template and set it aside. Now it’s time to start filling in your drawing! Start by outlining the object with a dark pen or pencil. Then, start filling in the details. Remember to use light and dark shading to give your drawing dimension and depth.
When you’re finished, take a step back and admire your work! If you’re happy with it, congrats – you’re done! If not, that’s okay too – there’s always room for improvement. Keep practising and soon you’ll be drawing like a pro!

Hang your finished painting on the wall or give it as a gift to someone special
There’s a sense of accomplishment that comes with finishing a painting, whether it’s a masterpiece or a doodle. And what better way to celebrate that achievement than by displaying your work proudly on the wall or giving it as a gift to someone special?
If you’re not sure how to hang your painting, start by finding a spot on the wall that has good lighting and is at eye level. Then, use painter’s tape or command strips to attach the painting to the wall. Make sure the tape or strips are secure, but don’t damage the paint job. If you’re giving the painting as a gift, make sure to wrap it up carefully so it doesn’t get damaged in transit. And be sure to include a card with a personal message – it’ll make the gift that much more special.
