Painting the Kit.Detailed Instructions Congratulations on deciding to paint!! Put your canvas on any surface and you are ready to go. We like to keep a small plastic cup of water and a paper towel close for color changes. With landscape paintings, start painting the background first. Other paintings, start with any section you want…there is no right way or wrong way. Painting the sides of your canvas is always a plus. But, It is up to you to decide how to enjoy your hobby. Make sure that you close each lid carefully when you take a break as they will dry quickly. We sell more paint on our website if this occurs or if you just want to use more paint than what we have given for an average painter. Once you are finished, your canvas is ready to hang. Consult a professional for any other way to display. Remember, your masterpiece doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful! Enjoy the craft and the process- we hope it provides just what you need! Tips and Tricks - Water based acrylic paints dry quickly if left open for too long. Remember to close the paint pot lids after use to prevent the paint from drying out. - Make a mistake? Let it dry completely then you can easily paint over it with the right color paint OR we have used water to wipe away one area that is still wet. - If you can, do two coats of paint on a section after the first one dries. It will smooth each color and help cover the lines. - When you give a kit as a gift you are giving someone hours of quiet…reflection time….you did that! - Lay your canvas to dry when you're done or dry it with a hair dryer if you are needing to move right away i.e. paint parties. Before you paint Find a well lit area to start your painting. Have a container of water close by to clean your brushes in between colors. Also, have a paper towel to dry brushes in between washes. For parties, an extra roll of paper towels or napkins are suggested.
