To get the Look of A Museum Painting read my review for the inserted product link. This review is intended to help buyers with this product, and I myself will buy and use the products again. To gather all the information Read & Watch the complete review. Remember this review 3 months later when you have finished and are completely disappointed because the painting is beautiful, BUT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE LOOK! It has a haze to it and the paints are dull and have a chalk look. That is because you need to apply an ULTRA thin film coating of LiquidTex Heavy Gloss Gel to the Board BEFORE APPLYING ANY PAINT; and mix EACH COLOR of the paints with this gel. You can read my technique in my review for that product by clicking on the inserted product link then look for my review. What to look for: Look at each board in my video and look for a glare/haze, not the shine, it's a glare or a haze. The Taste of Italy the 1st one at the beginning...
If this is "high quality acrylic paint", I shudder to see what the poor quality would be. There were a number of disappointing features to this kit but the greatest one was the paint. Maybe I am just accustomed to the effect that oil based paint brings to the picture ~ texture and richness of color ~ and expected more of acrylic than it can deliver. This is very thin, covers poorly and results in a flat, dull, washed out finish. Unlike other kits, there was a lot of messy color mixing to be done. There is a difference between a good and a frustrating challenge ~ this was definitely the latter. Tiny spaces to paint that are difficult for even an experienced paint by number artist do not add to the enjoyment or the attractiveness of the finished picture. Not worth the financial or time investment.
I bought Taste of Italy as one of two Paint-By-Number pieces I gifted myself for Christmas 2015. The first one was a different brand that didn't require any paint mixing, but when I was done I realized it looked acceptable but seemed a little "melted" compared to the original on the box. It was because I didn't have a good enough brush to really get into those tiny areas with precision, so the fine details weren't as defined as they should have been. Learning that lesson I found a good, stiffer fine point brush that I could control better and have been using that to work on this one for the past couple of months. I work in about 2 hour time segments, once or twice a week, so I'm slow at completing them... but wow what a sense of accomplishment when I'm done! This one is already turning out much crisper than my first attempt so for sure, go shopping for a good brush that works best for you.
The only draw back I found with this kind (that requires paint mixing)...
