FINALLY A PAINT BY NUMBERS KIT FOR ADULTS!
What Is It And Why Is It So Great?
Painting by numbers for adults is a relaxing method of painting that follows a guide of shapes and numbers to take you through the artistic process. Similar to connect the dots, as you paint in each shape, you create a beautiful, finished picture.
No stress, messy, leaky paints, or headache involved!
Most artists who've already learned to paint would visualize their piece before starting it and can see the colors they would need to mix or create before they've even started. In contrast, painting by numbers can cleverly train people of all ages to paint just like professional artists do!
A Paint By Numbers Kit Is A Great Gift For The Family
Most people are hesitant to get into some art because they don't know where they'd like to begin. Your retired family members or your struggling siblings might need a new hobby to unleash their creative side.
Paint by numbers is an attractive way of helping someone learn to create art at any age. And the best part is the fact that it comes in a beautiful hand-held format, which eliminates the anxiety most people feel over not knowing just what they should be doing.
Is Painting By Numbers Good For Mental Health?
Painting, as a whole, can be a relaxing experience and is pretty good for your mental health for a multitude of different reasons.
First off, painting keeps your brain distracted from the daily stresses of life, or the overwhelming thoughts your mind tends to dwell on naturally. When the distraction takes over, you end up getting into a creative headspace that brings your mind closer to your environment and away from it's accumulated clutter.
Painting by numbers has recently been adopted by art therapy programs, serving persons with traumatic brain injuries, strokes, cognitive disabilities, along with a large variety of mental health issues.
Not only is painting (especially by numbers) good for one's mental well-being, but it also increases the ability of the brain to change continuously throughout an individual's life. It can help repair the mind or give the brain a boost through several means of stimulation.
Painting By Numbers Kits For Adults
Kits for adults can get pretty complicated, even though they're supposed to be simple and straight-forward. When shopping for an adults' kit, you can expect to see ones ranging from beginner to advanced skill levels. The main difference in beginners and advanced kits is comparable to the difference between a 1,000-piece puzzle, and a 10,000-piece variant.
However, even a beginner's kit will still yield beautiful pieces of art. It may just end up being smaller, contain fewer details, or use fewer colors. A beginner's kit is faster to do and can be a great way to share this fantastic activity with your family and friends.
An advanced adults' paint by numbers kit will be the exact opposite. Generally, it will contain lots of individual or mixed colors and many details to complete a rather large and complex piece of art. These are incredible gifts for a person with both the time and patience required to complete them.
Paint by numbers is a fantastic way to learn how to paint, and the perfect gift for friends and family. Whether for adults or kids - it's a great activity to let your creative side loose and develop a new skill in the process.
It's stress-free, offers some wonderful benefits through relaxation, and if you're interested in learning how to paint (the easy way), a kit is a great way to get started.
Some artists mock the "Painting by Numbers" system because of its simple, guided process to create something they'd call unoriginal. In hindsight, they probably don't think of how it may be enjoyable for people who haven't explored painting and its different styles, as well as for people who don't have a master-hand grasp of its sophisticated techniques.
Can I create my own paint by numbers kit?
After spending enough time working with different kits, you may hit the point that you want to create your own.
Creating your kit can make for a perfect gift for a friend or family member. And if you're set on DIY'ing your way through - there are a few ways to get started with making your kits. However, this does require a relatively advanced understanding of this unique way of painting and a grasp of the colors you have available.
Photoshop is a powerful tool that can be used to create either beginner or advanced templates, depending on how you do it. Some methods involve making the colors in a photo more simple and then creating a map of the colors by selecting them in the image. Using this method, you can create advanced or beginner templates, depending on how many colors you decide to extract from the photograph. And if you're ready to make your own - there are dozens of tutorials online demonstrating step-by-step how this can be done.
The second Photoshop method is similar but is a little more time-consuming. For every object in the photograph, select it, and trace it using the image trace function, then manually add the numbers and color-color graph. If you're looking for more advanced sheets to add to the kit, this method is the way to go!
Last but not least, the third Photoshop method combines the first two but involves more work. This method is by far the most advanced way to create a very extensive template. The technique involves "indexing" every single color that you'd like to use and separating them all into different identifiable Photoshop layers. After we have divided the color layers, we'll apply a stroke to the edge of every single layer to create the line-art on your sheet.
But let's face it - not all of us are Photoshop image manipulation geniuses! Thankfully, if you fall into that category, we've got a solution just for you.
An alternative that you should check out is a little site called PBNIfy.com, which does nearly all the work for you. All that you have to do is select 7 or 8 colors in the image, and it will convert it into a sheet that you can print and paint over. Just make sure that you're printing it on the right sort of paper for the paint you're planning to use.
