Use your imagination and paint by numbers for an excellent painting project. The first step is to select what part of the body you will be painting. This helps you figure out the general area you will be covering and enables you to develop a general idea of how big the pieces will be once you begin painting.

Be sure to check back often to see how much longer each piece took to paint and notice any mistakes that you may have missed.
