FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
What are Paint by Number kits?
Painting by numbers is a fun, meditative, and totally Instagrammable craft. Your kit from Easy Artiste will come with everything you need to get started + a guided team event. All you do is fill in pre-numbered areas on a canvas with specific colors of paint.
What will my Easy Artiste kit include?
Each kit includes a high-quality, preprinted linen canvas with a 15"x15" wooden frame, three paintbrushes (small, medium & large) tucked in a velvet pouch, and approximately 24 water-based, non-toxic acrylic paints.
No mixing is required to create the right colors. Sometimes a kit will include more than one capsule of a particular paint color if the painting requires extra. We provide plenty of paint to complete your virtual masterpiece.
How much does an event cost?
Pricing starts at $59/kit + shipping/tax and includes all the supplies plus a complimentary event host. We require a minimum of 15 kits per order and ask for a 50% deposit to secure your spot.

Painting by number is easy to learn. Just match the numbered sections on the canvas to your pre-mixed paint capsules. Depending on how fast you paint, it can take just a couple of days to several weeks to complete your painting.
How should I prepare my workspace?
Pick a well-lit part of your home and unroll your canvas. Place it on a flat surface and grab a cup of water and some paper towels. You're ready to get painting!
How should I care for my paint brushes?
Remember what your art teacher told you as a kid! Make sure to thoroughly wash your brushes between each use. Easy Artiste recommends dabbing them dry with a paper towel before switching colors. Never let your brushes sit overnight in water. If a brush is particularly dirty, you can add a drop of mild soap to make it easier to clean.
How should I care for my paint capsules?
Our acrylic paints are non-toxic and better for the environment than oil alternatives. If your paint seems to thick, simply add a few drops of water and stir the capsule with a toothpick.
Between uses, seal the capsules tightly by closing the lid.
What happens if I make a mistake?
We recommend putting down a sheet of newspaper to protect your work surface before painting. If you paint the wrong area or go outside the lines, don't stress! Simply wait a few minutes for the paint to dry and go over the error with a fresh coat of the correct color. Sometimes it takes a couple coats of paint to completely cover the lines and numbers - it's smart to wait for the first layer to dry before repainting.
