What is paint by numbers and how does it work? 

A usual color by numbers kit contains a numbered canvas (usually linen), the photo to reproduce, numbered paints and a set of brushes. The painting, or the photo on which the painting by numbers is based is very thoroughly reproduced on a large canvas, and each color is represented by a number.

What is more, in order for you to reproduce the painting most accurately, even when two colours are only slightly different, they are given different numbers, and therefore, there are 2 different paints corresponding to them. 

Therefore, you will have plenty of paints delivered with your Color by Numbers kit. In addition, you will have 3 brushes of different sizes, that will allow you to choose your best brush for paint by numbers.
