Are you an avid paint-by-numbers enthusiast looking to earn some extra cash? You may want to look into putting your finished paintings on the market.
A hobby loved by people of all ages, painting by numbers has become a go-to activity for those looking to unwind at the end of a busy day. An excellent way to relax while letting out some creative energy, working on a paint by numbers masterpiece can also help you develop art skills you never knew you had. Some paint by numbers artists have become so good in painting that they end up selling their finished paintings.
Now the question is: how do you sell your finished paint-by-numbers pieces?
Is it legal?
As long as you disclose your artwork as a rendition of an original piece, selling your paint-by-numbers masterpiece is legal. Include in your item description that while the painting is a rendition of an original piece, your personal touches make it a one-of-a-kind piece.
