Setting Up a No-Frame vs Framed Paint by Numbers


No Frame

You can simply lay your canvas down on a desk/table to paint on! Otherwise, to protect yourself from any neck strain you can:

Blue-tack your canvas to a wall/door: standing up while painting will reduce neck/back strain if you wish to paint for more than a couple of hours at once. This is also less likely to take up needed space :) *Fun fact, Rachel painted her first ever Paint by Numbers on this exact door.



Pin your canvas to a corkboard: this helps with stability and means you can move your painting around more easily.











Stretched Frame

A stretched frame Paint by Numbers makes it a lot easier to paint on as you can hold it in your lap and move it around easily to paint! You can buy a No Frame and Stretcher Bars to stretch frame your painting yourself (here's how), or you we'll stretch frame it for you!


Try sitting out in the sun and painting!
