Move over, coloring books! Here’s an entirely new craft that kids will love: Paint by Sticker Kids.

Paint by Sticker Kids is the same compelling craft first introduced in Paint by Sticker, but just for kids! The book includes everything you need to create 10 bright, playful, full-color illustrations—illustrated templates printed on perforated card stock, and 10 pages of stickers to fill in and create the artwork. The fun, vibrant images are rendered in “low-poly,” a computer graphics style using geometric polygon shapes to create a 3-D effect. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into hundreds of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, and place it in the right space. Add the next, and the next, and the next and voila!

It’s a rocket ship blasting through space. A Tyrannosaurus rex prowling his domain. A pickup truck hauling its load. A friendly toucan hanging on his perch.

Kids will love watching these pictures come to life. Plus each is suitable for framing or the fridge.

Immerse yourself in the magic of world-renowned painter Vincent van Gogh’s art—experience the great master’s sense of color and creativity and unleash the artist inside you with this enchanting coloring book for adults.

A major Post-Impressionist painter, known for his rich use of bright colors and distinctive and recognizable style, Vincent Van Gogh has continued to inspire artists and art-lovers for more than a century. Since his death in 1890, his vivid paintings—including The Irises, The Bedroom, and Sunflowers, as well as his pensive self-portraits—have been the source of countless studies among art critics and students, and have inspired artists and art-lovers around the globe.

Now, Color Your Own Van Gogh lets you experience the artist as never before. Printed on a heavy paper stock suitable for display, this one-of-a-kind coloring book allows you to “paint” thirty of the artist’s most captivating works from the exclusive collection at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, using paints, pencils, or even crayons. The book employs a unique drop binding that allows the front cover to “drop away” from the binding, allowing for a completely flat surface to color, and ease of removing images from the book. In addition to the black-and-white line illustrations, Color Your Own Van Gogh includes full-color reproductions of the artist’s original paintings to help you color true to life, or stimulate your own imaginative palates and color design.

Relax, create, and enjoy some of the most beautiful art the world has ever known with this inspiring and unique Van Gogh collection.
