Vacation Memories

Enjoyed giving this portrait of my gf and I to her for her birthday as a memory from our annual trip to Oak Island, NC. The painting process was therapeutic for stressful days and the finished product was amazing. I’m sure I’ll be ordering again.

My wife Mitzi's latest painting is of our sweet Irish Wolfhound, Juneau. We love Winnie's Picks because they help turn our favorite photos into beautiful art that my wife enjoys making, and we get to enjoy in our home for years to come.

My garden

The first custom pbn I ordered from Winnies Picks was completely messed up. They immediately re-ordered and sent me a second one that was spot on although I ended up tweaking it a bit. I also took a tip from Youtube and clear gessoed the canvas prior to painting. This worked very well in the even distribution of paint. A very enjoyable and relaxing hobby with a satisfying result. Highly recommend. BTW: expect to wait quite a while for a custom one as they are shipped from China (followed tracking on my Shop app).

A Boy and His Dog

This is my first attempt at paint-by- number using a photograph. The photo is of my grandson and his dog at his cottage. I have always loved this image. Winnie Pics was able to transfer the image onto a paint-by-number template that completely captured the photo. I used 36 colours which was much better I feel than 24. I love the results. I am going to give it to my daughter, son-in-law, and grandson for Christmas so they can hang it in their cottage. Thank you Winnie Pics. Currently, I am painting the Cafe Van Gogh...this one is really challenging but I am loving my new COVID hobby.

Grandchildren twins

I don't get to see these grandkids much, as they live half the country away, so I painted their portraits. Sure, I could just look at a photograph, but it was fun to "spend time with them" as their lovely little faces emerged through the painting process. Now they hang in my home.

Had so much fun painting my Furbaby. Only complaint would be the areas that need the most paint there wasn’t much left for touch ups.

Friends Forever

This is my best friend, Laura. My friend since 3rd grade, always inseparable, until she moved from New York to Texas. On her 50th birthday, I chose a photo we both loved and painted with thanks to Winnies Picks. I was able to capture this nostalgic moment with colors and tones I hadn’t noticed before in the original photo.. I found The breakdown of colors and shapes fascinating and had no idea that our portrait would emerge with such accuracy. I was thrilled to awaken my creative side and to share my love and nostalgia with someone who has been such a positive force in my life.

Paint your pet by numbers

You love your furry friends and you would like to create a special memory to cherish for the rest of your life?

You are looking for something special, that really captures the moment and that enables you to relive it every time you look at it?

Custom Pet By Numbers is the way to go. You can upload your pet’s favorite picture above, and our team will take care of the rest.

To get the best result, make sure to take a great shot of your little companion. How? Well, first make sure they’re at their best, then avoid any blurry shots because it will not give good results, natural lighting is ideal to have the right luminosity on your picture and ultimately on your painting. Also, the simpler the background of your picture is, the better the end result will be.

A Pet by number is also a great way to deal with the loss of a loved one, especially when it’s your best friend and your little companion through your every move. You can pay tribute to their memory by creating a personalized painting by number that can be later framed and be a part of your home.

Can I turn a photo into my own personalized Paint by Number?

Immortalize your favorite memories and make your own paint by numbers template with Winnie’s Picks. Whether it’s a picture of your pet, family, loved one, ex-boyfriend, or special friend, we can do it for you! Well, as long as it passes our photo guidelines.

You can check out our photo guide for more information on what would make a good custom paint by number image. The better you follow our guidelines, the more realistic your painting will be.

We like to use acrylic paint instead of oil as our medium because acrylic paint is more versatile. It’s also water-soluble. So you can rehydrate it if dries up using warm water. Our custom paint kit is complete with everything that you need to get your painting done.

Photos are a great way to capture moments, but paintings are way more personal. Everyone can take a photo, print it, and frame it but paint by numbers are special. The level of details these custom photos require will take the painter in you to an all-new level of artistry.

This project is also a great way of saying, “hey, I love you and I put in a lot of time and effort to create this painting especially for you". Talk about going the extra mile.

Paint by Numbers generator

How do we create our paint by number templates? As much as we would like to handcraft it all for you, we cannot! But it is the 21st century, we have technology on our side. At Winnie’s Picks, we use our own image processing tool to convert your picture into vector graphics.

To get the image right and ensure that we can process it to a realistic paint by number canvas, you have to make sure that the image is cropped to the right size of the canvas and is not pixelated. The higher the quality of the photo, the easier it is to process. The smallest side of your photo should not be less than 750 pixels. If it is, you should find a new one.

Although we have our own designers that help convert your photo the best they can, it’s best if you can find a photo with a simpler background. The simpler the background, the more colors you can use on the actual subject.

The maximum color palette that paint by numbers usually have is 36 for a maximum of details. If your photo uses more colors, our software works on an algorithm that cuts the number of colors that you have to use for the painting to just 36 colors max or 24 paint pots if you want to make it easier.

How do I create a custom paint by number?

Creating your own paint by number from scratch is much easier than you'd have thought. Just follow the steps below:

1. Choose the picture you'd like to use. Your image must be high resolution with good lighting. Plain backgrounds usually work better.
I strongly recommend taking your time to select your photo. Firstly, your painting is likely to take weeks if not months so it would be sad if you're not that fan of the picture used. Then, the goal is to frame and hang your finished masterpiece so it will stay around for quite a while!

2. Once you're sure about the image you want, select the size that would fit best and the number of colors you want. The more tints the more details you'll have on the final painting.

3. Wait a bit. Converting a photo to a paint by number pattern takes some time! Once made, you'll receive an email with your tracking number.

4. Discover your unique paint set, start painting and enjoy your artwork!
