When you get ready to start your color by numbers artwork, you could just dive right in, but there are some tips that will help you get the most out of your project.

1) Choose a picture that you really love. It seems obvious, but just by putting a little extra effort into deciding what appeals to you, your experience will be enhance that much more.

2) Lay down newspaper or other large paper to minimize spills and messes.

3) Get a disposable cup (not used for drinking). These will be filled with water for cleaning off brushes in between paint colors

4) Decide which color to start with. It will be easier if you choose all reds, for instance, before switching to a different color. Ideally, you should let your paint dry before moving on to the next color, so that no mixing occurs.

5) Display your art! You can choose a nice frame for your project and also a great place to show it off!
