Paint by Number Wallpaper Murals for Kids - View Paint by Number Collection

I can’t even draw a stick figure. Will I be really able to do this?

It’s really very easy. Just tape up the pattern and transfer paper, trace the lines and then paint the areas with the corresponding colors. It’s just like coloring in a coloring book.

How long will it take?

You’ll not only be done before you know it, but it should only take about a weekend.

What is included in the kit and is there anything else I will need to buy?

Each kit includes the paper pattern, transfer paper, directions and a color guide. You will need to buy the paints, a couple of brushes and some painters tape.

Where do I find the paints?

The Americana paints by DecoArt can be found at most craft and art supply stores. They are sold at Wal-Mart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Ben Franklin Crafts, Garden Ridge, Hancock Fabrics, Crafts & Stuff, Mae’s, Jo Ann Stores and many more. To find the store closest to you go to their website: www.decoart.com

Do I have to use their paints?

No. There are generic paints listed too. You can even come up with your own color palette.

Do I have to prep the wall before starting?

For best results the wall should be clean and dust and dirt free.

What type of paint should I use for the background - matte, semi-gloss or what?

It’s best to use a satin, semi-gloss or eggshell finish. This way smudges from the transfer paper can be removed with a damp cloth.

Can I paint it on any color of wall?

Most murals will do best on a white or off white or very pale color. The only exception is the Carousel of Critters. This should be on a little darker color so the white animals will show up. Try a light cream, light blue or light sage green.

Why shouldn’t I trace the numbers too?

It’s best if you don’t only because some of the numbers might show through the lighter colored paints. You might want to try to do a test first.

Can I reverse the patterns so the design faces the opposite direction?

Yes. Simply place the pattern on top of the transfer paper with the transfer material facing the back of the pattern. Trace design, and flip over the pattern. Your design will now have the design on the back in reverse. Proceed with normal directions.
