With my interest in emotional health and self-care, I’m always on the lookout for activities and resources that can help bring that centre of calm. As a child I loved painting by numbers but sadly, it’s one of those activities that seem to fall by the wayside when adulting takes over. When Winnie’s Picks got in touch to collaborate I couldn’t pass up the chance. Painting by numbers for adults! You are in for such a treat.
Who are Winnie’s Picks?
Winnie’s Picks is a Belgian paint company specialising in the production of unique paint by numbers. The savoir-faire they developed in this field put them as one of the world’s favourite brands, according to a recent survey carried out by a European arts & crafts organization. They now mostly ship their kits to the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK.
What is painting by numbers for adults?
Paint by numbers kits were invented by Dan Robbins in the 1950s. It is a system where a painting is divided into small areas, each marked with a number that corresponds to a specific colour. Most of the time, the uncoloured shapes won’t make much sense and you won’t be able to recognise the painting before you’ve almost finished it.
You’re probably thinking along the lines of ‘but I’m no artist. I won’t be able to do it.’ If you enjoy colouring, jigsaw puzzles, scrapbooking, knitting or crochet you’ll probably enjoy painting by numbers for adults just as much. Winnie’s Picks have beginner sets as well as painting tutorials to help you.
