Children, people with restricted dexterity, or people who want a quick activity should pick paint by numbers with large areas to fill. But for those who enjoy detailed, repetitive motions, look for sets with smaller areas. The smaller the sections to fill in are, the more photo-realistic the finished product will look.

When you paint, consider filling in the darkest and largest areas first. This will ensure small and lightly colored remain sharp.

It might go without saying, but keep the finished product in mind. If you are planning on displaying your masterpiece, look for colors that will compliment your decor. At the very least, a beautiful image will provide incentive to finish the piece.

Consider what accessories are included in your paint set. Look for sets that include multiple sized paintbrushes. You’ll need a variety to fill in areas of different sizes. Flat, sturdy paint boards will be easier than canvases for beginner painters. Canvases may need to be ironed and stretched in a frame for display but will give the painting a museum-quality look.
