Ink by Number


After 2 1/2 hours, Ink's face emerges. Paint by numbers is like painting a jigsaw puzzle, and I find it relaxing.

 The picture is a bit pixelated, but I like it. I don't think I sent a high enough resolution photograph. Someone was too excited about the prospect of having a kit of Ink made up, she didn't thoroughly read the directions.

Total project time: 7 1/2 hours

  5. Paint by numbers is a relaxing activity, I agree. I was wondering how a photo of a black cat would translate into this form, but cool! It's turning out great.

    1. That’s a possibility if I change the color(s) of the background. Not sure I want to paint all the teeny tiny spaces pf the tapestry chair

  7. It is looking like the photo on the right side of your blog already. Great job so far. You have a lot more patience than I would.

    1. Painting Ink is the easy part. We'll see how much patience I have when it comes to painting that background. I might just op for a solid background and call it good. ๐Ÿ˜บ

  8. Ink's face looks great. I think even if I used a kit, I still wouldn't be able to making a painting that looked good.

    I also wanted to thank you for asking me about Inkscape awhile back. I used it today to convert a PNG file to SVG, with a simple File - Save As... choice. (Who knew it could be that easy? :-)

    1. Winnie's Picks, where this kit came from, has lot of choices. Or you could have your own photograph turned into a kit. Reasonably priced. https://www.winniespicks.com/
