We’re excited to start your painting project with you! Simply follow the instructions on the inside of the box to create your paint by number design. It only takes a few minutes.
We’ll use our special website tool to create a paint by number design. Once you create the design you can print it on your home inkjet printer on the special printable canvas included in your kit. Once printed you simply begin painting using the brushes and paints included in the kit.
This process is guided step by step as you go. But if you get stuck, below are the full step by step instructions all in one place:
Step 1: Creating your printable design (~1 minute)
Note: for this step, using your smartphone is recommended
- Get started by scanning the QR code on the inside of the box using your smartphone
- Once you review the photo tips, tap the ‘choose photo’ button, and select a photo from your photo library on your phone. (this may be called ‘photo library’ ‘photo gallery’ or similar)
- Once you select a photo, tap ‘continue’ and we’ll transform that design into a paint by number design!
- Satisfied with your design? Tap ‘Looks good!’
- Want to try another design? Tap ‘Try another’
- In the last step on the website, you’re prompted to enter your email address. We need this to send you your printable design. You can create and send yourself as many designs as you’d like.
Step 2: Printing your design to canvas (~2 minutes)
Note: for this step, using a computer/laptop connected to your inkjet printer is recommended
- Find the special printable canvas in your box and load it into your printer.
- Identify the printable side of the canvas. This is the side that has the rougher, coarser texture.
- Load the printable canvas into your printer so that your printer prints to the correct side.
- Tip: use a test sheet of paper to learn which side your printer applies ink to. If you make a mistake on the actual canvas do not fear - simply slip the canvas sheet over and try again.
- Open the email with your printable design titled ‘Nice work! Your custom paint by number design is ready!’.
- Print the attachment in the email to your canvas sheet.
- Begin painting your pet using the brushes and paints included in the kit!
