Does anyone have any good web shopping sights for ordering paint by numbers?
I've done some at AC Moore but can't find anymore good ones. Any help would be appreciaited.

Wow, I didn't even know they had Paint by number kits anymore!

I did a google search for you. The kit company that A Moore has is called: DIMENSIONS PAINTWORKS PAINT BY NUMBER KITS. Google link (http://www.google.com/search?num=50&hl=en&lr=lang_en&as_qdr=all&q=Paint+By+Number+Paintworks&btnG=Search&lr=lang_en)

The first link looks like it has several PAGES kits in the various paints: http://www.oakridgehobbies.com/pbn/paintworks/paintworks_1.html

When your done with those, you might want to check out Paintworks Magazine (http://www.paintworksmag.com/projects/index.shtml) They have projects in which you trace a pattern onto ANY surface and then paint it in, paint by number style. They even teach you how to load a brush & the brushstrokes to get shading, highlights & tones.

Another good magazine, (it's more advanced,) which unfortunately has just been discontinued, but you can get back issues is: Decorative Artist Workbook. (http://www.decorativeartist.com/daw_project.asp) Here is one of their acrylic projects with pattern included: Hooked on Hydrangeas, (http://www.decorativeartist.com/daw_project_view.asp?id=2809) Pattern (http://www.decorativeartist.com/images/articleart_small/daw0106_pattern.pdf)
