Paint By Sticker : Create 12 Masterpieces One Sticker at a Time!
About the book
Paint by Sticker is a compelling new craft for all ages, and the book includes everything you need to create 12 vibrant, full-colour "paintings"-a dozen illustrated templates printed on perforated card stock, and 24 pages of stickers to fill in and create the artwork. The images are rendered in "low-poly," a computer graphics style using geometric polygon shapes to create a 3-D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into hundreds of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next-it's an activity that's utterly absorbing, both in the mindful pleasure of peeling and sticking and the growing satisfaction of watching a "painting" come to life, emerging from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with colour, body, spirit. Still life with fruit. A classic urban landscape. Sunflowers, of course. Two rowboats on a peaceful lake. A dynamic hummingbird in mid-flight. Each suitable for framing.
"It's an art history lesson you can take anywhere." - The New York Times "It's like the paint-by-numbers of your childhood, so you'll get a dose of nostalgia, but with zero cleanup time." - Brit + Co "This fun book has gorgeous works of art that you create by following a number code to put stickers in the appropriate spaces on your masterpiece. No mess like you'd get with real painting and there's no pencils, markers, or crayons to keep on top of. Everything you need is in this functional book." - Weight Watchers
