In this way, is paint by numbers hard?

If you've never done any adults paint by numbers, I suggest to check out our easy paint by numbers collection. To be honest, there's no such thing as an easy or difficult canvas. That being said, the beginner collection will regroup paintings with large sections of numbers to paint.

Similarly, how do you thin paint numbers by paint? Flow Improver/flow aid can thin out your paints, but in a much different way than water. Rather than add flow improver to your paints directly, you add a few drops to your water and dip your brush in it as you paint. Think of it as adding the equivalent of olive oil to your water.

Also to know, should I use gesso for paint by numbers?

Answer 1: Gesso is a primer that makes paint go on more smoothly and makes the canvas more absorbent. Answer 3: Only use CLEAR GESSO for paint by number kits! If you use white gesso or any other color, it will cover up the numbers and spaces you need for your paint by number kit!

Should I paint the background first?

Oftentimes, though, beginning artists paint the subject first and then don't know what to do with the background. To avoid that problem, paint the background first. Then as you paint the subject, you can work in a little color from it into the background to help unify the painting if needed.
