How to paint by numbers using an
Overhead projector

1. Place your overhead transparency onto the overhead projector
2.Project the image onto the wall.
Spend some time moving the image around until you are happy with the position and the size on the wall.

Trace the design lightly onto the wall using a soft pencil crayon.

3.Paint in the colors following the numbered guide and finally outline the design with a black marker if you wish.

Frequently asked questions

I can’t even draw a stick figure. Will I be really able to do this?
It’s really very easy. Just project the image onto the wall, trace the lines and then paint the areas with the corresponding colors. It’s just like coloring in a coloring book.

How long will it take?
You’ll not only be done before you know it, but it should only take about a weekend.

What is included in the kit and is there anything else I will need to buy?
Each kit includes overhead transparency, directions and a color guide. You will need to buy the paints, a couple of brushes and some painters tape.

Where do I find an overhead projector?
If you can't borrow one from an office, church, library or school, overhead projectors can be hired on a daily basis from many local hire shops and DIY stores.

Where do I find the paints?
We can recommend the Americana paints by DecoArt, but any reasonable quality artists acrylic paints can be used and bought at hobby stores, artist shops and DIY stores.

Americana paints can be found at most craft and art supply stores. They are sold at Wal-Mart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Ben Franklin Crafts, Garden Ridge, Hancock Fabrics, Crafts & Stuff, Mae’s, Jo Ann Stores and many more. To find the store closest to you go to their website: www.decoart.com
.

Do I have to use their paints?
No. There are generic paints listed too.

Do I have to prep the wall before starting?
For best results the wall should be clean and dust and dirt free.

What type of paint should I use for the background - matte, semi-gloss or what?
It’s best to use a satin, semi-gloss or eggshell finish. This way smudges from the transfer paper can be removed with a damp cloth.

Can I paint it on any color of wall?
Most murals will do best on a white or off white or very pale color. The only exception is the Carousel of Critters. This should be on a little darker color so the white animals will show up. Try a light cream, light blue or light sage green.


Why shouldn’t I trace the numbers too?
It’s best if you don’t only because some of the numbers might show through the lighter colored paints. You might want to try to do a test first.


Can I reverse the patterns so the design faces the opposite direction?
Yes. Simply flip the transparency which ever side you prefer.. Trace design, and flip over the pattern. Your design will now have the design on the back in reverse. Proceed with normal directions.
