Paint By Number

Should I seal my paint by numbers?

Yes, sealing your completed paint-by-numbers project is a good idea for several reasons:

  1. Protection: Sealing the painting helps protect it from dust, dirt, moisture, and other environmental factors that can damage or fade the artwork over time.
  2. Enhancing colors: A clear sealant can improve the vibrancy and depth of the colors, making your painting look more professional and finished.
  3. Eliminating texture differences: Sealing the painting helps to even out the texture differences between the painted and unpainted areas of the canvas, creating a more cohesive look.
  4. Facilitating cleaning: A sealed surface is easier to clean gently with a damp cloth if it gets dirty.

To seal your paint-by-numbers artwork, use a clear acrylic sealant spray or brush-on sealer designed for use on acrylic paintings. Apply a thin, even coat over the entire painting surface, following the manufacturer's instructions. Allow the sealant to dry completely before displaying or framing your artwork.

It's a good idea to test the sealant on a small, inconspicuous painting area first to ensure it doesn't adversely affect the colors or finish.
