All Paintable Pictures Reviews; The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Ever notice websites with only ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reviews? Unfortunately, some dishonest business people will just delete reviews they don't like. These business tactics are especially prevalent in the paint by number industry.

Here at Paintable Pictures, we don't believe in removing reviews. We'd rather shut the business down than do that.

Removing reviews, like all forms of lying, are a shortcut to short term results. It's a hit and run tactic. We don't think about business that way. We're building a business for the long term. We expect to be around for decades to come. The way to win in business over the long term is by building a relationship of trust with your customers and delivering on your promises to every customer, every time. There will be times where we'll mess something up or deliver an unsatisfactory experience (You can read them below!). But our intention is to find a way to make it right. If our products didn't meet your expectations, contact us at, and we'll help you out.

And with that, here is every review we've ever received.

A fun time the whole family can experience

I had a lot of fun painting my image. My sister got involved, too, making it an entertaining task to do with family. There were times we became so engrossed in it, we couldn't put our paint brushes down for the night. It was amazing to watch the canvas evolve from numbers and lines to a full fledged image, which looked very close to the original picture. We received a good amount of paint tubes and the paint went on the canvas easily. The colors were rich too.

Baby Grandson

So far, so good. Still painting, but it looks good. I appreciate all of the care and attention I received to ensure the picture would look as natural as possible. If I am able to complete the project, I will definitely order another one for my other grandson.

Fabulous idea

This is a fabulous idea and surely it's going to turn out awesome BUT it's very difficult and time-consuming. The paint by number areas range from a pencil head eraser to a dime in most areas. It is very tedious.

Perfect gift for all occasions!

This was such an awesome gift! I purchased it as Father's Day gift to an extremely artistic father from a not so artistic daughter. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. They provide almost everything you need and I truly enjoyed converting a very treasured picture into a beautiful work of art!

Easy to follow and the finish is beautiful. Definitely will buy again!!!

Perfect Present

My husband got me a paint by numbers of my favorite photo from our wedding for my birthday.
I was so excited to get it done I finished it in 2 days. It came out amazing! I’m already trying to decide what photo to do next.

My girlfriend painted the picture and it turned out ok but she was not able to completely cover some of the lines as they were darker than the paint. Also some of the numbers did not print very well. They were very hard to read.

Great quality!!

Wonderful project for when you are stuck home recovering.

The paint-by-number face impressed me most

Part of what makes this hobby so fun is watching the picture emerge from a bunch of blobs. When I began this painting of my grandmother, I wondered how paint-by-number could possibly do justice to a face. I was doubtful, but by the time I was done, the painting really evoked the original. The shadows on her forehead, her neck, her eyes looking through glasses all looked realistic.

This is a great screen-free activity for winding down late at night. I'd get my mother one of these for Mother's Day if she were still living.

Amazing!! The canvas quality is fantastic and the paints are highly pigmented and nice to work with. Can’t recommend enough!

This was the most perfect gift for my husband for our first Valentine's Day married! My order was created SO fast and was delivered within a few days; extremely reliable! The quality of the canvas is gorgeous and so helpful that it comes with all of the exact paint colors you need! And fine tipped paint brushes too! Patrick responded to all of my messages very quickly and gave great suggestions! By far the most personable and wonderful store I have shopped from on Etsy!!! Couldn't be happier with how our painting turned out!!!

I got my paint by numbers and it came out perfect. I made it for a gift for my grandmother and she loved it. Only problem is I specifically ordered through this shop because they advertise “2 day shipping”. It was far more. I ordered it January 5, it shipped on the 6th and it finally arrived the 15. Now don’t get me wrong most other shops take months coming from China BUT I spent quite a bit more in this product due to the fact that it was supposed to be 2 day shipping...\nUPDATE:\nThe customer service for this shop is amazing! Right away after leaving this review I was contacted and the support apologized and offered me a discount on my next order! I have tried multiple different companies to order paint by numbers through and this one is by far the best! Very excited to continue purchasing from them in the future!


Such a special idea for a project. I haven't begun to paint it yet, however felt it was important to make a comment now rather than waiting until it has been completed. Hopefully, I will be able to post a photo of the finished picture.

Best of the bunch

Fast turnaround….high quality….true colors…and most importantly good packaging to protect the canvas…I think it’s made in the USA too!!!….I’ve tried several companies and this is the best!!

Wedding picture

Some areas did not have numbers in them and some paint was dried up this time.

The BEST Gift!

Wow!! What a fabulous idea! We had so much fun completing this! We'll definitely be re-ordering for family and friends! AND ourselves! :)

I haven’t finished it yet but I am enjoying it.

I was happy to see the picture was not going to look like a kindergarten project. Can’t wait to finish it.

A little dark but i love it!

The picture I sent it, when I began painting it, it looked a little dark. But it’s coming out good! Thank you!

Love how the pieces come out!!!

The painting always come out great and the color and details are captured in a very beautiful and unique way. LOVE THEM!!!

Excellent service!!

Very quick turnaround and excellent product.

Pierce Graduation

Excellent product. Great support. Will order another soon.


LOVE working on these! It’s so calming and beautiful. I put my book on tape on and just paint away. Paintable Pictures does a great job making my photo so painterly. I will be ordering more!

Love this Product!

Turned out beautifully, adjustments I wanted for the picture were included so well. Will buy from here again.

love it, thank you, super quick shipping

Super fast shipping! Needed a quick gift for my mother in law and I received this in 2 days! Brian even upgraded my print size to ensure the quality wasn’t lost in the faces since i had a lot of kids in the image. Will definitely order again for other gifts in the future. Thank you.
