Release your inner artist and create a beautiful masterpiece to decorate your home or give as a gift. This paint by numbers kit from LedgeBay includes everything you need, and the easy to follow numbered system allows anyone to create a work of art. The kit includes a 16 x 20 inch canvas, a full set of acrylic paints, 4 paintbrushes of various sizes, wall mounting supplies, a 4 x 5 inch color reference of the painting, and a sample reference drawing on paper.


This romantic painting will bring a pop of color to any room, making it a great focal point and conversation piece. Using vibrant hues, the Colorful Cat painting captures the beauty of a collage of brught colors glowing to illuminate the face and bring out the colors from the surrounding canvas.


Whether you are a beginner or an experienced painter, this DIY craft project is for everyone. Beginners will love the guidance the paint by numbers system provides while pros will enjoy bringing their own unique style to the painting. Our kit allows anyone to become a true artist.


We want to ensure your artwork looks its best, which is why each of the professional grade canvases is rolled instead of folded when packaged for delivery. This ensures your canvas arrives wrinkle free and ready to paint.


The paint by number system couldn’t be easier to follow. Simply match the pre printed numbers on the canvas with the coordinating numbered paint and get started by painting the smallest sections first. Use enough paint to cover the number, but not so much that it runs into other areas. If possible let the painted area dry for 10 minutes before moving on to the next color, and remember to close the paints when not in use to prevent drying out. When finished, you can choose to apply a clear coat of acrylic sealer.

    I got mine in the mail yesterday, it’s certainly going to take a while and is a very detailed canvas(I got the owl)Make sure to lay some heavy books down on the corners for 1-2 hours to help flatten it out!You will defiantly have enough paint! I recommended buying a set of detailed brushes, as some of these areas are very small. Overall, I can tell this is going to be a fun and great project! Price point is unbeatable! I plan on framing mine when done. I give it a 5/5! I’ve done many DIY paints, so far this quality is my favorite. In my opinion, I wouldn’t listen to the negative reviews, I honestly have no idea why they are having trouble or see their perspective on the canvas. If you think the paint is too thick for your preference, simple and quick fix is to mix in a drop of water. Done!

    Everyone with anxiety should at least try this. A friend of mine told me that painting alleviates anxiety so I tried this and it’s totally worth the try! This calms me down and it’s surprisingly fun to do. You have to focus on the details as well so it’s a little challenging.

  3. Howard

    I love it! You’ll get a little intimidated at first but once you started, it’s hard to stop. I’m taking this cat painting slow for me to make it a beautiful artwork and it’s indeed paying off. I’m excited to try the other designs!

  4. Aurora

    You have all you need in this set. Good paint, a straight canvas and some good quality brushes. I have no complains, really. I think it’s a good purchase! I can’t wait to start painting!

  5. A Chrisman

    I am enjoying working on this painting. The canvas is great quality and the paints are smooth and easy to apply. The brushes are better than I had expected, with 4 different sizes to choose from. Would buy again.

  6. Chery

    The paint that came along with this is very nice. It’s pigmented and a little goes a long way. This paint by numbers thing takes me back to my childhood! But this is more fun ’cause there’s a bit of a challenge.

  7. D k

    It’s a beautiful picture very easy to follow and especially love it comes in a tube I’ll be getting more thank you

  8. Jean

    I have a friend who was going through a rough stage in her life. I read on the web that coloring has various effects on the brain and helps a person feel more relaxed. Knowing that my friend was also an artist who loves to draw, I wanted to give her a coloring book of some sort. Instead, I found this and thought that this may be much better than a book so I purchased it and gave it as a gift. She said it was indeed a great help to get her through some stages in her life. I very much appreciate the positive effects it gives to people.

    I just finished this painting and it was a pleasure to do. The brushes were good, paints were good quality and they included a magnifying glass which made it easier to see. Highly recommend!

  11. Dirk Diggler

    Came mounted with an easel and a magnifying glass.

  12. Lydia

    Easy enough to understand. Makes me feel like a professional painter. The painting looks fantastic after!Museum-worthy lol.

  13. Jones21

    I’m an artist at heart. I want to draw but my hands don’t really cooperate lol. But painting with a guide is much easier for a beginner like me. Makes me feel like I’m a professional painter and also helps me destress. Now I have a painting I can display on my wall and proudly say it was made by me!

  14. very happy with product performance

    Great product….. sharp vivid color paint

  15. Marsha

    This paint by numbers is so relaxing plus it is effortless to accomplish an artwork. I can paint with ease thanks to the excellent quality brushes and the paint have the right consistency and opacity.

  16. Agata

    I suck at painting, but I still want to try this anyway out of curiosity. The package arrived in good condition. There weren’t any creases on the canvas, and the paint seems to be good of quality. I just started working on this, and it IS pretty fun!

  17. Reby

    This painting set is perhaps one of my best purchases ever. I do love to paint, but I still struggle, so this is very helpful plus it’s so soothing whenever I’m stressed.

  18. Marylou

    Perfect for bored people like me and I have to admit, this paint by numbers thing is pretty cool! Painting with this literally soothes away all the stress and tension. Also, thank goodness for good quality!

  19. Carasi

    I am already in the late 20s, but I still enjoy this set a lot. I don’t know if it’s therapeutic or a good pastime. Either way, this set is quite enjoyable! I’d pick doing this over gardening any day.

  20. Draz

    My daughter has some potential in painting, but the thing is she doesn’t know how to start an artwork so I bought this for her, in hopes that it will spark some inspiration. I’m glad to report that she loves it and she’s halfway done! She’s already asking me to buy her more!

  21. Toadie

    Worked on this all day today. Coming along great. Darker colors don’t apply well. Don’t fret just let it dry and apply a second coat. Make sure to buy better brushes. The added easel is fantastic.

  22. Monique M.

    Good print and paint quality

  23. cassandra pecaro

    Packaging of the product was unique.

  24. Marnie

    I have ordered several paint by numbers from different companies and this is the first company to send the canvas rolled. It is so much better. Thanks Ledgebay!

  25. Cheno

    I’m going to buy another set of this paint by numbers since I’m done and will have it framed within the week. I feel like a pro. So easy to use and understand.

  26. Lisa Druhan

    Purchased item for my son’s girlfriend (28 yrs) birthday. LOVE it! I purchased more. Great item.

  27. SJM94010

    Loved everything about this color by number. This was my first but not my last. I have no experience with painting & thought this would give me some introduction. It was fun to complete. Very intricate in some areas for which ended up purchasing a tiny paint brush for. The brushes that come with this are not the highest quality but they’ll do the job if you take care of them. So I learned how to take care of brushes, keep paint from drying out and how to put the paint on the canvas in the way I intend it – this was a challenge. This took me a while to complete. I would estimate about 4 hours altogether over several days. It was relaxing and meditative as well as challenging at times. Only one suggestion to improve this product is to include the drawing with the numbers so you can use it for reference when numbers are not visible or get covered up. I really messed up the beak and only have the picture to refer to. The colors are very similar so it’s hard to tell which colors to use without the numbers but mostly I need to know the shape of the area to paint. Overall, this was a great purchase and a good price.

  28. Stephanie Thomas

    Loved this

  29. Linda Wheeler

    My son in law loved this!

  30. Chuck

    Numbers are quite hard to see.

  31. andria woody

    Best PBN I’ve gotten so far! Good quality paint, it’s rolled instead of folded, and the brushes are really small. And the finished product is amazing. Highly recommend. It took me 3 days

  32. Amazon Customer

    I am not a painter by nature, and I did good with this one. Loved how easy it was, even though it might seem intimidating first. The instructions were great. I also reached out to the company asking tips and got an immediate and super helpful answer. And the further I got with my painting, the more excited I got of the end result. Reserve enough time though. It took me closer to two weeks to finish this. With the lighter colors I had to touch up them couple of times to cover all the numbers. I made this for my husband and got it framed. He was super happy and didn’t almost believe that I had made it.

  33. Nadia A Robie

    I’m still working on it but I am enjoying it. The brushes are good and the paint is smooth. I would buy again from this company. I read TONS of reviews in different paintings and this one had the most consistent positive reviews.

  34. Paula

    Exactly as described! The way it was packed was beautiful and I am in love with the quality ! One of the best paint by numbers I have gotten

  35. Christina Gabriella


  36. kathy Torres

    This is definitely a paint by number for adults or someone with the patience for detail..alot of very small spaces that the brushes given do not work for. I had to buy better brushes because the ones supplied kept in fraying and falling apart..but over all is very relaxing

  37. Cherry Pirozzoli

    I only had 1 problem with this. The print is very small you need a high powered magnifing glass to see the numbers. But it was fun to do

  38. rockstar0510

    So far, this has been great. Fun, relaxing project to do at your own pace! Is my first paint by numbers and don’t think it will be my last. Picture is about 1/3 complete.Update: Finished this in a week! 2nd photo is the completed one. ????

  39. ARG

    This is my first adult paint by numbers and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Very nicely packaged. The numbers and lines are clear. The paints seem to be of good quality. It’s much more complicated and will take longer than I anticipated but that is a pleasant surprise. My husband ordered one that needed to be steamed to take out the folds which was a nuisance. Also his brushes are of a lower quality. He ended up ordering replacement brushes. Also his looked like it would have the same complexity, but it is nowhere near as detailed as my picture. I have absolutely no complaints with my set!

  40. cathy butts

    I got this as a gift. I love it. Very relaxing. Love that the canvas is rolled so there is no need to iron. No creases! I have already bought another one. Buy this. It’s a good idea!

  41. stereogirl

    I wanted a creative outlet to relieve stress. This is my first paint by number and I absolutely LOVE it. It took me a total of 22 hours over several days to complete. Good quality paint, all the brushes you need and excellent that it comes rolled (no creases).Now I want to do another….

  42. Christina D

    I bought this for my 11 year old daughter and she LOVED it. She spent many hours working on it and it came out beautiful. I would definitely buy again.

  43. JKAM

    Exactly as advertised. It would have been nice to have had a border of canvas in order to frame easier.

  44. John Emil

    Some paints arrive starting to dry out. Beautiful when finished. Canvas being rolled Instead of folded is a great benefit

  45. Jamie Foltz

    Bought for my teenager. She loves spending time working on it. You do have to take your time on it, as she spends hours, and feels she gets little done. But it takes her mind off of things, and keeps her out of trouble. So very much worth the purchase. Cant wait till shes done, as I told her I would frame it and hang on the wall. I would include pictures, but she has not competed it yet.

  46. Amazon Customer

    Good quality brushes, paints and canvas. I’m excited to start painting!


    I enjoyed the process – the finished picture was a gift. They loved it!

  48. Mido

    Doing something art-related relaxes me. Unfortunately, I am not a very creative person and I agonize in front of a blank canvas. So this paint-by-numbers kit is perfect for me. Even when this was my first time trying out acrylic paint, it came with everything I needed and clear instructions. It took me a but to get used to the thickness of the paint (I am more familiar with watercolor and gauche), but once I got going I had a great time. The brushes are not great quality, though: if you’re only planning on painting one canvas, you can make do with it, but if you think you might keep going, invest in a slightly better quality set of miniature brushes.

  49. Jess

    This is so beautiful and easy to do. Great gift for anyone who likes painting or who has some time on their hands. Just know that you would need to complete it within a few months of buying and opening it or the paints will dry out.

  50. Mido

    Of the four paint-by-number kits by Ledgebay that I got to review, this is my favorite. It’s both cute enough that I think I might be able to hang it once it’s done and varied enough that it’s entertaining. I love the packaging of these kits: everything comes in a sturdy cardboard tube, the canvas is unwrinkled, the paints vibrant. The weakest component is the brushes; if you plan on keeping painting, treat yourself with a better set.

  51. Natalie Dawn

    I am working on this painting with my 13-year-old niece and we are having a lot of fun with it! The kit comes with everything you need including the paintbrushes, but I still pulled out a few of my own brushes to go along with it. All the paint tubs are clearly numbered, and though the outlines and numbering on the canvas are a bit faint, I could still clearly see them all, if you have weak eyes you might need a magnification glass though. I had no problem laying the canvas flat, just left it out overnight, and I thought painting all the small areas would be tedious but actually preferred the smaller areas to the larger one. It’s a great project to do with a friend, and it’s not just a quick project either, it takes some time providing long term entertainment. Great set!

  52. Oliver DeMille, TJEd

    The quality of the color by numbers plan is actually quite good. The movement of the lines is spot-on, and the choices for colors and sectioning is cleverly done to create a relatively faithful rendition that is still doable for a paint-by-numbers version. Super fun!

  53. Oliver DeMille, TJEd

    This is a BEAUTIFUL image, and so fun for this kind of project! It’s not just a fun crafty project, it’s a great piece for display after your done!

  54. Heidi

    Really amazing way to learn to paint and/or just have fun!!

  55. ReviewToaKill

    I’ve done a lot of paint by number projects over the years. Every couple of years, I’ll buy a fancy one and try to finish it. Sometimes I’m successful, sometimes not. That has gotten a bit more challenging since having children, I must say. It doesn’t help that what was once my craft/project/guest room now belongs to a kid. In short, I don’t have anywhere where I can work on projects and then leave it to dry.It does help that this kit can roll up. Once I’m sure the paint has dried on the section I was working on, I can carefully store it until I can find 30 minutes to myself to work. That’s a nice feature!I do like that you get the 4 different brushes. The rest is rather self-explanatory. I will say, I will always abhor those silly little pots of paint, as they’re a pain to deal with and tend to dry out fairly quickly. More impetus to hurry up and finish the project!

  56. Lyudmyla Chudnovska

    Thank you I like it

  57. moden

    Such a great craft to pass the time! Everything was neatly packaged, and it even came with a helpful quote with tips and tricks. Love it! Will definitely buy again!

  58. C

    Quick shipping, email with tips and great followup by the seller. Great project for any teen or adult.

  59. Bayan

    Turned out nice for someone who has no painting experience

  60. Bryce Goyer

    Great product and a fun way to pass the time!

  61. Amazon Customer

    I bought a paint by numbers kit to work on during the pandemic isolation. The canvas came rolled up so no folds! There are 4 brushes and clearly labeled paints. There are lots of small spaces to paint, so it’s better for adults. I taped my canvas to a board so when I’m not working on it, I just put it in a safe space to dry. Also, I can rotate the board if I want to work on a different section. I found the paint covered the numbers with no problem. The brushes are not the best, so you might want to get better brushes, but I was just looking for an indoor activity, not to necessarily create an amazing work of art, which I may end up with anyway!

  62. Joshua T Cameron

    If you’re like me during this 2020 pandemic, you were likely looking to find some activities to stay busy at home. This project is the perfect thing! Just yesterday, I dove into a portion of my paint-by-number (while listening to a podcast) and before I knew it, it was 3 hours later. This product is of high quality canvas, comes with all the paints and brushes and instructions you need. I’d recommend!

  63. Alex

    Paints, brushes, and canvas seem high quality. I really like the easel for displaying my work-in-progress! It’s taking me a lot longer than I thought, but that’s okay because it’s very relaxing. Would recommend reading glasses to avoid eye strain with the small sections.

  64. Missy St. Germain

    I thought the picture was great the paints were wonderful perfect consistency. However, I am very disappointed that there was no extra canvas around the edges so I could mount the picture on my own stretched frame that is 16“ x 20“. I had to order a different size frame to have enough extra canvas to mount on A 12“ x 14“ frame. It took away a large amount of the painting and if I centered it it would’ve cut off the top of the lighthouse.

  65. rosec

    Loved it!

  66. Dan P.

    Can’t wait to see it finished! Love this one!!!

  67. Lauren M.

    Bought this for my uncle- who was having a hard time finding a painting within a reasonable amount of time during covid.This has been a great outlet for him as a distraction through the winter and while being stuck home. This will be his 6th painting, and said he is going to go blind for the small areas (joking he has a lighted magnifying glass)Thank you for providing an essential mental health product during this time!

  68. Sandi Williams

    Great service! Got product the day before it was supposed to be delivered! Love the paint by number! The only suggestion I would make is a little more sturdy brushes, strands come out pretty easily. But otherwise I’m very happy with this product and I’ll definitely order another painting when I’m done with this one. ??

  69. Ron Tarvin

    I’ve never done paint-by-numbers before, but thought I’d give it a try. I found a scene that I loved and ordered. When it arrived I was overwhelmed by the level of detail. But Ledgebay sent helpful tips on how to approach the project. I’ve been working on the scene for about a week, and I’ve found the quality of the canvas and paints to be very good. And I’m surprised at how the detail painting actually helps me focus and relax. Once I’m done with this kit I plan to order another. Highly recommend!

  70. marmar

    This is so relaxing and amazing to do. I’m a beginner so this is fun for me.

  71. Kierstan

    This kit was exactly what I was looking for. I didn’t end up using the easel. Just because the canvas was smaller than expected. So the numbered areas were small. I needed to paint on a flat surface. It took me about two days to complete. There was plenty of paint and the brushes were the perfect size!

  72. Rachel

    This was very hard but keeps me very busy during quarantine!

  73. cindy wang

    Great! Came with stand and paints were not dried out like other reviews mentioned.

  74. Stacey

    Good quality canvas and paints. The brushes weren’t the greatest quality, but they worked for the larger areas. The print on the canvas is very light, which can be difficult to see. However, on the plus side, the light printing means the numbers don’t show through the paint. Overall, this was a calming project and offered a chance to “turn off” my brain and just concentrate on something safe. Happily recommend.
