Paint Plot in collaboration with the prominent YouTuber Mel from Melanie B’s creative studio have all the tools you need to up your painting game.

Every adult paint by number kit from Paint Plot has everything you need to complete your stunning artwork.  However, we have many additional tools to help enhance your paint by number journey.

Firstly, we would like to thank Mel B for sharing her extensive knowledge and tips and tricks for paint by numbers with our Paint Plot family.

In the video Mel outlines the 5 top tools and the reasons why they complement your Paint Plot paint by number.

If you are short on time or cannot view the video right now, we have a brief outline below:

The gesso brush sets are the perfect accompaniment to the clear gesso that is available through Paint Plot.

Clear gesso has a sandpaper feel and it primes the paint by number canvas for painting.  It allows the acrylic paint to go on evenly and smoothly.

Flow Aid when used in conjunction with clear gesso can help enhance the look of your artwork.

It will reduce the amount of time spent on your paint by number because as Mel B explains not as many coats are required.

One or two drops stirred into your paint pot will not reduce the creamy consistency of the paints and will ensure longevity. 

We have many extra paint brush sets available at Paint Plot.  Mel B’s suggestion would be to purchase all of them eventually. However, the mini detail 5 pack brush set is an excellent starting point. 

They are great for those small cells and perfect to be used in conjunction with the pack of 3 brushes that are already supplied with your Paint Plot paint by number kit.

Let’s face it, we all need a little help with the smaller cells. Each piece of artwork available on our website is unique and some are more complex than others, resulting in smaller cells and numbers.

The magnifying glass clamps to whatever surface you are working on and will become one of your best friends throughout your Paint Plot paint by number journey if you’re completing a more complex design. 

Many of Paint Plot community could not live without their Tabletop easel.  The most common reason of course is that an easel helps soothe an aching back, from leaning over a desk or table.

We suggest a combination of both, as this allows a desk, table top or board, sometimes and an easel for a change.

These are Mel B’s top 5 extra tools for Paint Plot adult paint by number suggestions.  Please feel free to browse our website as we have many other accessories on offer to help upscale your painting game.

Our main focus here at Paint Plot is to help ‘you’ as our valued customer enjoy your paint by number experience. So if you have any other suggestions of tools we should stock please feel free to email us at

We love to see your ‘in progress’ or completed artwork.  So, don’t forget to share with our fun and friendly facebook community.
