Putting up these paint-by-number wall murals is both easy and fun! Just follow the simple directions that come with each kit, tracing the pattern on the transfer paper and then painting the areas of the mural with corresponding colors. For any other questions, see below!

It's really very easy. Just tape up the pattern and transfer paper, trace the lines and then paint the areas with the corresponding colors. It's just like coloring in a coloring book.

You'll not only be done before you know it, but it should only take about a weekend.

Each kit includes the paper pattern, transfer paper, directions and a color guide. You will need to buy the paints, a couple of brushes and some painters tape.
