Hi everyone,

I recently received an amazing gift from a friend: a custom paint by numbers made from a picture of James.

I thought I'd share the progress with you; I'm really loving it so far!

Just started yesterday and here is what I've already painted. I added the picture he used (one of my favorites!) so that you can compare and imagine the final result :)

James Corgi PBN - 1.jpg

There are a few wrinkles on the canvas, I'll lightly iron it to remove them. But they seem much worse in the picture than in reality!


XX,
Brigitte

That seems pretty cool! Are you able to stretch the canvas on wooden bars? That would keep it from wrinkling.

Thank you!!!
Yes it's really fun to do.

I could stretch the canvas but I prefer painting it unframed. It's easier to move it around and put it away when I'm not painting. But the wrinkles are slowly fading away, they almost disappeared over the weekend!
Thanks for the tip though :)

Here is the result after a few more hours of painting:
