The Mister has been on my last nerve now that football is over so I thought I would surprise him with a new project. I had no idea that paint by number was even a thing until I saw Kathy B's posts and was amazed at how many really nice kits they have on Amazon.
These little pots of paint brought back so many memories. My dad loved his paint by number kits when I was a kid. All the neighbors had a Walter original hanging somewhere in their house. Back in the day his were oil. I am very thankful these are acrylic.
For $10 you get that huge canvas, all the paints, decent brushes and when you are done you will have something that I hope looks like this. The Mister is very fond of wolf themed stuff so I am hoping it holds his interest-until spring at least. I've got stuff that needs to be done around here.
What a great idea and it looks as if he likes it too. Fireman's paintings are beautiful. I had no idea the kits were so inexpensive. Hopefully your idea will work and you'll have time for your projects.ReplyDelete
Nice! And, inexpensive. Hope he enjoys and has some fun!!ReplyDelete
I did a few PBNs when I was a kid. They were always so much fun!ReplyDelete
As soon as I saw the pic with the pots, I could smell them! What a memory blast! I hope it holds his interest, too!ReplyDelete
Hope he enjoys it and stays out of your hair!ReplyDelete
Hmmmmm, maybe I should get a certain person who resides at this house the same thing. He is lost without football.ReplyDelete
Oh those wolves are regal! I love wolves. Im so glad paint by number occupied Fireman for several weeks. I so wish I had purchased a paint by number Jesus I saw at a antique mall years ago. I remember doing a HORSE painting as a kid. I had no art talent so that was fuN!ReplyDelete
That is so cool that your dad was so artsy craftsy! I am literally the only one in my family to do art and craft things on a regular basis. That's a great painting and I hope your husband enjoys doing it. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
