Paint Your Darling
Convert your photo into a painting!

An image editor developed by SCHIPPER Arts & Crafts can convert a portrait photo into a template according to the “Painting by Numbers” technique. Thus, every hobby painter can create a portrait of his darling by himself. The finished painting is a reproduction of the photo with a picturesque character and artistic expressiveness.

Important Hint! – Please mind before buying the kit!
The system “Paint Your Darling” cannot precisely reproduce all colors of a photo. It is based on 42 colors which are most likely to occur in a portrait photo. However, the painting result is considerable, even if individual colors are no 100 per cent match. The overall impression of the finished painting is to be judged. It is reduced to the essential and thus it can easily be painted by a hobby artist. The objective is a self-painted portrait of your darling!
