Paint by Sticker: Travel: Re-create 12 Vintage Posters One Sticker at a Time!

Paint by Sticker: Travel celebrates a time when elegant posters, in an Art Deco style, beckoned visitors to faraway romantic places—from Venice, with its canals and gondolas, to Cairo, gateway to the pyramids—all through the absorbing activity of painting by sticker.

Paint by Sticker is a compelling new activity for crafters and artists, doodlers and coloring book enthusiasts of all ages. As in paint-by-number, each template is divided into dozens of spaces, each with a number that corresponds to a particular sticker. Find the sticker, peel it, place it. And then the next, and the next, and the next, until your “poster” comes to life.

Paint by Sticker: Travel includes everything you need to create twelve vibrant, nostalgic travel posters—the stickers, the templates, the intuitive directions. The works include Moscow, home of St. Basil’s Cathedral and its candy-colored onion domes. India and the Taj Mahal, crown jewel in a world of fascinating destinations. Bermuda. Monaco. Japan and its cherry blossoms and pagodas.

    I am normally a huge fan of these books. I had no issues with the original or Masterpieces, but this edition made me rethink putting their next book on my wish list. First, the stickers weren’t the same quality. I had zero issues with the first two books, but these stickers tore easily and some even peeled off without the sticky part. It was also really easy to scratch off the color. Secondly, the amount of errors in my edition sort of ruined the experience. Holland has a mislabeled sticker that couldn’t be solved until the end of the puzzle (the sticker labeled clearly doesn’t fit in the space) but at least that mistake left you with a completed image. However, the Taj Mahal AND Moscow had duplicate labels, meaning each image was left with a white space and no sticker. My suggestion is to wait for a later printing so those issues can be resolved.

    I now have all 3 of these books. I absolutely love them. Coloring has become difficult for me due to tendonitis. I’ve read some reviews saying the stickers aren’t cut good and don’t stick good. I haven’t had either of these issues. Sometimes 1 of the corners seem like it’s not cut all the way, but if you just remove it slowly it comes off with no problem. Lots of fun and very entertaining.

    Hint: Use an exacto knife or sharp box cutter to remove difficult stickers, August 27, 2017

    I really enjoy this book series. I have purchased three so far, and each one is unique in it’s own special way. It is very relaxing to simply peel and stick and see a colorful picture emerge before your eyes. The book is very sturdy, so you do not need anything hard to press down on (I often do it in my lap), and the pages (stickers and images) are all perforated, and very easy to remove. I’ve never had a page rip while tearing it out.

    I did have to deduct one star because occasionally the stickers are difficult to remove as some of the cuts are not complete, causing the sticker to rip (see attached photo for example). But I did find a good solution. If you have an exacto knife, or even a sharp box cutter, just run it lightly along the edges of the problematic stickers, and they will pop right out. Just be careful not to cut your fingers!
