A hand-painted portrait of a child? Your wedding photo as an individual work of art? Or your own masterpiece of your pet? Even the least experienced artists can achieve that with the personalised my Painting by Numbers painting sets. Just find your favourite photo and upload it - Ravensburger will produce an individual Painting by Numbers set for you to paint yourself. You can find out how the unique painting templates are created here.

From photo to painting template

2. From photo to painting template

A detailed painting template is then created from the uploaded photo. To do this, a sophisticated computer programme converts the photo design into individual shades of colour and numbers every shade. Ravensburger then use their experience to pick out the best variants on the computer preview and they are sent to the customer for approval and selection.

3. The trick with numbers

Once the customer gives the go-ahead, the painting template then goes to the factory. There the generated lines and numbers will be applied to high-quality canvas panel. The result starts as a mysterious-looking labyrinth and as the numbered sections are filled in, it becomes an individual picture.

4. Every nuance counts

What a colour palette! Each individual painting set contains the colours you choose. Ravensburger has mixed the various nuances - water-based acrylic paints that cover and dry well - into the finest shades, numbered them and sealed them in small containers. That way nothing can go wrong when you're painting.

8. The joy of painting

At home, Marie gets straight to work. She grabs her brush and the paints and neatly fills in the numbered sections, starting with the skin tones, then adding something blue, and finally, the pink of the t-shirt. Marie is delighted - she gradually begins to recognise herself in her painting!
