Introducing a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages. Paint by Sticker includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, full-color "paintings." The images--including sunflowers, a fox, a hummingbird in mid-flight, two boats on the water--are rendered in "low-poly," a computer graphics style that creates a 3-D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular colored 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 as you watch a "painting" emerge from a flat black-and-white illustration to a dazzling image with color, body, spirit. The pages are perforated for easy removal, making it simple to frame the completed images.
