Lakeside Village

I realised I never actually posted a photo of the paint-by-numbers I spent like four months doing!

Here it is!

Paint by numbers - Lakeside Village

Here's the eighteen colours it came with

And here's the twenty-one extra colours that I had to blend (there were eighteen colours to start with, but the pots were all very large and only the dark brown one was almost finished when I was done - they could have made most of pots smaller and actually provided the extra colours! #grunt)

Somewhat annoyingly, several of the colours were all clumpy, and needed water to thin them out.

Dodgy paint

Also, many of the paints weren't thick enough to be completely opaque - most areas needed at least two coats, which was super super annoying.

So while it was a lovely picture, and the detail was amazing and there weren't any mistakes on the board, I'm not sure I'd buy another set from this brand again.
