I’m obsessed with our latest find for many reasons, it’s:
– an excellent gift idea for couples
– a fantastic, affordable date idea that you can enjoy at home on a rainy day or outdoors
– the perfect addition when packing for a romantic getaway or picnic.
It’s the adorable, surprisingly affordable and portable paint-by-numbers kits by Acozyscene – a small business born in Brisbane.
Why we recommend the paint by number kit by Acozyscene
These compact kits arrive beautifully packaged as gifts or as a date night at home or outdoors. Put it on your picnic or getaway packing lists!
What our experience with the paint by number kit was like
We excitedly included our kits when we packed a picnic to enjoy at one of our favourite picnic spots with scenic views – Tinchi Tamba Wetlands Reserve.
The kits conveniently include:
- Mini tubs of numbered and premixed acrylic paint colours.
- A set of good quality wooden paintbrushes.
- The 20cm x 20cm numbered canvas.
- Optional easel and instructions card.
We only needed to add a jar of water to clean our brushes with as we alternated between applying different colours.
If you have yet to try painting by numbers – it’s not hard at all – the Acozyscene team has made it super simple and enjoyable. The colours needed to complete your picture each arrive premixed inside a little tub with a number corresponding to the canvas area it’s for.
Hubby can’t remember ever doing a paint-by-numbers in his lifetime and he found it easy to do – the kits are beginner-friendly. As an experienced artist, I loved how easy and relaxing it was as an activity after a big week.
We finished our artworks around the same time – in under 2 hours, painting at a relaxed pace, taking in the sunset, sipping on wine and nibbling on our tasty picnic spread.
The hardest part was honestly choosing between all the gorgeous paint-by-numbers designs. We chose Ocean Sun and Adventure – both designs perfectly suit romantic explorers or nature lovers. They now look stunning in our home and will always remind us of our fantastic date! They have many more designs that we look forward to painting.
Tip: Paint more than one coat of each section for a luscious finish.
