First, I am not a polished painter. I've always wanted to paint and have used paint by number sets but have never satisfied with the results. TwoStick Shadows kit has allowed me to have fun, be creative and go outside the lines while learning to paint! I love the results. The kit arrived a few days after ordering. I selected Flowers. The 18 paint tubes are brilliant and there is plenty of paint for all 6 canvases. The instructions are well written and offer simple tips and hints to start your masterpiece! The canvas "Shadows" offer guidance to learn about paint strokes, color, and hues while allowing freedom for creativity. I highly recommend this quality product if you want to have fun and gain confidence in painting. I suggest adding the TwoStick frame when you make your purchase because you will want to frame your finished masterpiece!
Easy to use - outstanding results

I am excited to start painting! This is a very well executed project. You have everything you need to do four projects. I have always wanted to be an artist but don’t have a artistic bone in my body, but I can copy!

Painting by Shadows Kits are training wheels for the beginning painter. Paint directly on a canvas shadow image using a color image as a guide. The closer you mimic the guide image, the more your painting will look like the original. As your skills and confidence increase, you'll be less and less dependent on the shadows and able to create your own works of art.

TwoStick Shadows by Chirpwood

Thirty years ago, Maker Scott Moody left his job as an IBM engineer to teach high school calculus. Upon retiring, he started Chirpwood, a small handcrafted picture frame company and began traveling to Rwanda to teach. These trips inspired Scott to donate half of Chirpwood's profits to the Bridge2Rwanda scholars program.

Scott created TwoStick shadows for budding artists who are beyond coloring, but not yet ready for a blank canvas. You paint directly on a grayscale canvas image using a color image as a guide. The closer you mimic the guide image, the more your painting will look like the original. However, you have the freedom to improvise and unearth your own unique painting. As your skills and confidence increase, you will be less and less dependent on using the shadows as a guide. more Their Story
