I love it and loved working on it. The only thing that I wish I didn't have to do is mix so many colors. By the end of the painting I was skimping the bottom of some colors. However, it's gorgeous and will look great framed on my wall.
My husband paints to sooth his nerves and create something really pretty or useful. These pain by numbers have done him a lot of good as well as they are beautiful. The only thing he has that's a negative is there is not really enough paint. Glad I bought him 4 different ones so he can combine paints.
I have absolutely no idea what the other reviewer is talking about. Yes, the board is cardboard, but what were you expecting? An actual canvas? I've done almost a dozen of these and they all come on cardboard. Also, unless you've thrown the board into your pool and left it to soak overnight, it most definitely doesn't warp! It's not watercolor so you should only be using the acrylic paint that is provided anyway.
The only thing I would change about this kit is the paintbrush. You only get one and it's not practical for doing detail work. I rarely ever use the paintbrush provided. I bought a nice pack of 10 detail brushes online for $8. Problem solved!
I also think the picture on the actual box looks awful. The actual end result is much better.
In my opinion, Dimension is one of the best paint-by-number product makers in the market. Some of them get really confusing with their coding, but this is very clear. EVERY space has a number in it (I've had some from other companies where the space is left empty, but if you look on the box, the area isn't white--it's like they just overlooked that space and forgot to put a number in it!)
I was not sure what to expect but this is the most fun I have painting. The numbers are tiny, but you can paint 2 minutes or hours, it dries fast so you don't have to worry about smudges. It is refreshing i have since ordered more for a later time and gifts.
I bought several cabin themed paint by numbers to decorate my basement with, once finished will frame and hang on wall. This one fit the bill and is a nice product with great value. I am excited to finish this one!
The pencil colors by number turned out to be more involved than I'd expected. By having to blend your own colors, it makes these more of a challenge. Since it doesn't look like what it is until you're nearly done with the focal point, its hard to know which color the blend should favor, especially gauging the brown under orange compared to orange under brown, for example. I've now done 3 of these, and we've become friendly. My first was frustrating and exasperating until after completed.
I bought this for my mom who is a lover of hummingbirds. I thought maybe she could paint it herself, but when we took it out of the box, I say 'oh my" mom, don't think you will be able to do this. She is 83 and definately over her head. So I will be doing it for her.. which she thought was a great idea! When it comes to knitting or crochetting... she can do it all, but intricate painting... I better do it. The colors are very brivant.. she can't wait til it is finished!
I have been nursing a bad back for the last few years and have to find ways to keep boredom at bay. This was one of my better choices. After ordering a few and completing them (a must before moving on) I choose this one; reluctantly. The pic on the site was just ok. Once I started I couldn't wait to see the finished product. WOW. Now I'm afraid that I'll never choose one that look as good or nearly as good as this one. Give it a try. The colors are fun and when done you WILL want to hang it up!
This is turning out to be just as beautiful as the last Paint Works product I purchased! Can't go wrong with this brand if you enjoy relaxing while painting by numbers, and the finished picture is one to frame, hang, and enjoy.
This is pencil rather than paint, which is new to me. It actually is a bit harder than I remember with paint. You have to blend your colors just by knowing what 2 colors it should start as. When you are focussed that closely, the finished example on the package, looks fairly different than what you're blending. It' been a good experience to give it a shot, but not sure about the other 3 that I bought with it! Stay tuned!
