Day 161(1 day late): Paint-By-Number

Posted by annagrace under Days 101-200

After doing the skull-by-numbers from Skull-A-Day for the last post, I thought I’d try and make my own Paint-By-Number! So I found an image I liked and that wouldn’t be too many colors, and took it into photoshop. I used the cutout filter to simplify it, and then created used the Accented Edges to make the edges stand out. I finally just used the magic wand tool to select the main colored spaces, but not the out lines, and deleted them. I changed the lines to a blue so you could see them better.

Click on the image to make it bigger and feel free to download it and print it out! You’ll have to mix the paint colors, but you wouldn’t have to stick with that scheme. Just use colors with similar tone and you’re set! Here’s a little copy of the finished product if you don’t want to mess with painting it :)

It’s an Eames Molded Plywood Chair!

This ended up taking awhile to do, and I’m still not quite sure how Noah from Skull-A-Day made the blue lines of his, but I did the best I could without taking it into Illustrator, which always just frustrates the hell out of me. But, I’m pretty happy with it! Be sure to email me any pictures of this if you make it!
