My painting did not come with an instruction guide. I ran out of some paint and had to try and match the paint at my local craft store. I was not able to match the paint so I ended up mixing colors to try and come up with the closest match. I have ordered many paintings from My Paint By Numbers. I have noticed that some come from the US and some from China. If the come from the US they seem to have the guide. I would like all of the paintings to come with the guide because some of the numbers on the canvas are difficult to read.
It seemed to take forever to get here. I did not know it was coming from China. I have been working on it several times each day. I did not realize 3 brushes would come with it. My wide brush keeps loosing hair. I may have to buy another to finish the painting. I plan to buy another painting once I finish this one.
