How to iron correctly your paint by numbers 💡

How to iron your paint by numbers, correctly! 💡

Our paintings by numbers are made with high quality material, just like the clothes we wear. The canvases are made of cotton and linen and can be ironed. You need to be careful not to put the iron over high heat - keep it at medium temperature.
The objective of ironing your canvas is to make it perfectly smooth to start your painting, and for that we'll give you some tips on how to do it correctly.
We start with the screen face down on a thick towel. We shouldn't get the fabric wet, paint-by-number kits are different from normal blank canvases because they have numbers and lines printed on them that can be accidentally erased!
Then, we should gently iron the iron over the surface, keeping the iron moving, and your screen will be wrinkle free in seconds. Remember never to leave the iron in place for too long.

Fabrics are made to be stretched and the stretching process helps to remove the last of the wrinkles. Try to make sure the screen is as taut as possible, even when you're just gluing or fixing the screen to a flat surface!

Make sure you don't always roll them too much when storing them. Rolling them to store them can develop wrinkles on the screen surface. We advise that you keep them level and in the frames as much as possible. Yes, it may be necessary to rewind and charge them while on the go. But if you do, you'll have to start the process of flattening them all over again.
After passing, always stretch the canvas and stretch it. That way you will never see wrinkles. A simple trick here is to use duct tape and fold it over the edges of the canvas and stick it face down on a flat surface.
Always use a damp cloth to fight wrinkles. It works wonders when applied to the back of the screen. After stroking the wrinkles on the back using a damp cloth, iron instantly and experience the magic.
Never, never iron the front. If you are naive enough to iron face up instead of back ironing, you will end up staining the canvas with the paints and this can smear the paint on the canvas and consequently destroy your masterpiece
Last but not least, never get bored with wrinkles, know that there is always a way out and after that, it's just fun painting by numbers. Let's paint? 👩‍🎨 🎨 👨‍🎨
