Some times, my luck scares me! Do you know what I mean?
A week or so ago, I was searching online to identify a paint by number I had seen. I came across something in the museum I had never seen before and immediately said to myself, I MUST have that!
I figured it would be ages until I found one but I just LOVE the hunt and a hunt with purpose! Imagine my surprise when the next day, I went to eBay to look around and of course, my search took me to vintage paint by numbers. There it was! I was shocked and couldn't believe my eyes!
What was it? Take a look:
Is it a Shrinky Dink? Is it a paint by number? It's BOTH!!! A shrinking paint by number! Amazingly, it is still sealed in the box! Was Craft Master a head of their times?
It was sold in a hardware store for $4.47 and I guess it didn't sell, so it was marked down to $3.33!
This one is called Still Lifes. You paint by numbers on the big sized pictures on special material. Shrink to perfection and achieve the texture and blending of fine professional art (taken right from the box).
A division of General Mills Fun Group, Inc. Who knew?
Here is one picture included in box.
Box even includes 2 quality pre-cut professional artist's framing mats! LOLOL! They look like colored burlap to me.
Now, I am just itching to rip into this box and see what is inside it, but I must resist! You know what that means, right? I must find a second one so I can open it!
