3. Is the finished painting going to look the same as the product picture?
  • Overall, the completed artwork will assemble closely to the product picture, if not the same.
  • Having said that, we certainly like to think that no two paintings are exactly the same, even for a paint by numbers kit (this may be due to the technique used and the amount of paint applied to the canvas). And this is what makes it unique, interesting and fun.
  • A paint colour may have a different varieties or spectrum of lightness and darkness. It is considered acceptable for example if the product picture shows a light blue colour and the actual painting has a lighter blue colour. 
  • A product will be considered as a defect if the colour between the product and the picture is different for example a pink versus a red colour.
