Before I explain the review and give away, I want to back up. Earlier I wrote “Scrapbooking for the Unimaginative”. It began because of my personal search to create momentous ordinary moments. However I didn’t have a clue where to start. For that reason I am always looking for new crafts with simple instructions or patterns. Similarly to https://agramblog.com/2019/06/06/scrapbooking-for-the-unimaginative/ , my intent today is to share resources and tips with you. In my opinion http://www.winniespicks.com brings the beauty of the ordinary to us artistically challenged!
Because of a Facebook group I follow “Blogging Grandmothers”my follow up project just kind of fell in place. We are participating in a review and give away as a group. Each Blogging Grandmother was given choice of a no cost kit in order to provide an honest review of the product. Through http://www.winniespicks.com we are all trying our hand at a Paint by Numbers for adults kit! Not only do I experience a new craft, I get to give one of you the chance too!
Together with the Hula Hoop, Paint by Number kits was as big a fad in fifties and sixties. Before today, a resurgence occurred in the family friendly kits during the 1990’s. It seems more vintage items are making a revival. Just look at come backs from Polaroid Cameras, Slinky, and others. Kind of makes you think! Why is it we return to items of the past? Beyond the fact that Babyboomers, as the largest population drive marketing. Generally, don’t you think we long for the simpler things in life?
Compared to today’s estimated $20 billion Americans will spend on hobbies this year, paint by numbers boomed at 1960’s $12 million. Originally, Dan Robbins designed a way to pattern a canvas with coordinated numbered paints from his own creations. He partnered with a company to produce it for the public. Craft Master and Robbins promoting the promise “Every man a Rembrandt!” Robbins wanted everyone able to experience art, despite critics’ reviews of the product.
With this in mind, think back. Do you remember a deer drinking from a winter stream landscape take form as your brush filled in each number? Maybe your memories feature later versions of black velvet paint by Number kits? As a kid, I remember at least one Paint by Number Kit Christmas gift each year!
Unboxing Painting for the unimaginative
Dan Robbins’ vision to introduce the experience of art to everyone is alive again today. You see it Online, in Apps, and in stores. Like it’s cousin “Coloring for Adults”, Paint by Numbers for Adults provides a pastime reducing stress. Furthermore, it’s proven to improve cognitive and coordination abilities.
More importantly, we all need a way to unplug for awhile. With that in mind, each “Blogging Grandmothers” taking part will provide their own opinion. Coincidentally, we all ended up picking different “Picks”! The paint by Number for adults kits “Blogging Grandmothers”are reviewing come from https://www.winniespicks.com.
Painting Grandpa’s Nap review
Overall, I am pleased with my paint by Numbers Kit. Based on prices I observed while surfing online, Winnie’s Picks do cost a few dollars more than most. But I would say paint by Number kits as a whole, obviously are a relatively inexpensive hobby.
As indicated in my “unboxing” video everything needed comes included. I received four brushes of different tips. Obviously a canvas is the main component. Completing out the kit is a numbered color chart. Right from my ordering and shipping process the experience is easy. The kit’s packaging is ideal for traveling through the postal system. The cylinder tube packaging protects your canvas and secures the pains and brushes perfectly.
My review by the numbers
Per the phrase “Paint by Numbers for Adults” the Picks are not childish. In fact, any one of the kits will be a pleasing addition to your home decor. Since all kits are for enjoyment, the only thing to consider may be how elaborate you want to go with it. The website https://www.winniespicks.com displays a variety of “pics” to pick. On one hand, you have “picks” like mine that may take longer to complete. However, if that’s not for you. In which case, I would suggest one of the “Easy Kits”. These paintings have larger areas per color.
Although you can expect extensive details within the prints, they are not complicated. Even my thirteen year old granddaughter is putting her hand to it with me. In fact, she earned money selling kool-aid and lemonade last weekend that she is ordering her own kit! She wants a change from her coloring for adults coloring books.
I do have a few suggestions you may want to know.
- The kit comes with a picture hanger rather than framed
- the number 6 and number 9 paints don’t have distinguishing markers ie _6 vs 9 making it hard to tell which is which
- Remember to stretch your canvas before starting (I have added a video below by Richard Robinson Studio)
- keep a magnifying glass handy for tiny details
So then to review my review, I give http://www.winniespicks.com Paint by Numbers for Adults 5 👍👍👍👍👍! As a mother of three herself, Winnie’s Picks, wanted to share her way of relaxing with others. It works👍. She set out to offer an outlet for those of us who are craft challenged. It works👍. Paint by Numbers for adults is a complete kit including tutorials available on the website. It works 👍. Considering www.winniespicks.com user friendly site for purchasing. It works 👍. Finally, she clinches it with her free shipping in 3 days! It works 👍.
