Modern Paint by Number FAQ

What supplies are included in a Modern Pant-by-Number kit?
Each Modern Paint-By-Number kit contains a 14” x 14” preprinted rolled canvas (that easily mounts or frames to a 12” x 12” finished piece).  Also included are easy to follow step-by-step instructions, a No. 6 Round Paintbrush, and 10 paint pots filled with customized colors for each Modern Paint-By-Number design.

What size is a completed Modern Paint-By-Number artwork?
Although the preprinted canvas measures 14” x 14,” each design once painted, should be finished to a 12” x 12” format.  Artwork can be trimmed and then framed, mounted or attached to a surface, or even completed as a wall hanging. 

What is the best way to complete or finish out my Modern Paint-By-Number painting?
A completed Modern Paint-By-Number work of art can easily be trimmed with scissors and then mounted onto a 12” x 12” wood canvas panel or foam core board. You may also wish to frame the artwork in a 12” x 12” wood frame after trimming the canvas to size. NOTE: It is not recommended to frame with glass as the paint should not directly touch the glass. Another idea would be to create a wall banner by cutting two flat wood strips to 12” in length and attach them both to the top and bottom of the canvas that has been trimmed to a 12” square.
Should I seal my completed Modern Paint-By-Number project?
It is not necessary, however, for added protection against dust or dirt, a light coat or two of Patricia Nimocks Clear Acrylic Sealer (in matte, satin or gloss) may be lightly applied.
When will my completed Modern Paint-By-Number be cured?
Approximately two weeks after completely painting a Modern Paint-By-Number project, the paint will be cured.

What is the best way to clean the Modern Paint-By-Number paintbrush?
Rinse the paint-filled brush well in a brush basin or container of water.  If needed, add a touch of mild soap to thoroughly clean paint from the bristles.  Reshape the brush and allow to dry flat between uses.  NEVER let the Modern Paint-By-Number brush sit in a container of water or stand on its bristles, or allow paint to dry on the bristles.

When changing colors, should the paintbrush be cleaned?
Yes, it is advisable to clean your paintbrush when changing colors as well as after each painting session.  Simply rinse well in water and blot dry on the paper towel between colors.

How long does it take a Modern Paint-By-Number to dry?
Because the paint included in each Modern Paint-By-Number kit is water-based, non-toxic, acrylic paint, it will dry to the touch within approximately 15 minutes depending on the thickness of paint applied.

What, if any, additional supplies are needed to complete a Modern Paint-by-Number kit?
Because all Modern Paint-By-Number kits are all inclusive, the only extra supplies you will need are paper towels, water to clean your paintbrush, and whatever finishing supplies you may need to complete your art such as a frame or mounting plaque, etc.
What is the best way to complete or finish out my Mandala Dot-By-Number painting?
A completed Mandala Dot-By-Number work of art can easily be trimmed with scissors and then mounted onto a 12” x 12” wood canvas panel or foam core board.  You may also wish to frame the artwork in a 12” x 12” wood frame after trimming the canvas to size.  NOTE:  It is not recommended to frame with glass as the paint should not directly touch the glass.  Another idea would be to create a wall banner by cutting two flat wood strips to 12” in length and attach them both to the top and bottom of the canvas that has been trimmed to a 12” square.
