Paint and sip studios have become a popular venue for date nights, group outings, or even just a solo art activity. It’s a great place to crack open a bottle of wine and follow a simple step-by-step tutorial to help you create a painting you can take home!
Of course, many people want the fun of a paint and sip party without actually leaving home. There are plenty of great options for those who want to do a paint and sip kit at home.
So, what are the best paint and sip at home kits? The best paint and sip at home kits are either a paint by numbers kit, a painting kit that has the image outlined on the canvas, or a kit of all the painting supplies you’ll need for use with a video tutorial for the painting design.
Keep reading for a buyer’s guide to paint and sip at home kits and a list of our favorite ones!
Paint And Sip At Home Kits – Buyer’s Guide
There are three different options you can use when it comes to paint and sip at home kits. Each of them has their own advantages, and the one you choose will depend on your painting skill level and desired artistic freedom.
Paint By Numbers
The first option if you’re going to do a paint and sip session at home is to use a paint by numbers kit.
This is the easiest option for those with limited painting experience who would do better with a kit that provides very clear instructions in the absence of an in-person instructor.
Paint by numbers kits are often designed to take much longer than a traditional paint and sip class, so if you choose this option, be prepared for it to be a longer evening or take more than one session to finish.
The great thing about paint by numbers kits is that all the guess work is taken out. You don’t have to choose the colors or learn blending techniques. Everything about the kit is set up for an easy success!
One downside to a paint by numbers kit is that they often come with a flat canvas that will need to be either framed or stretched before it can be hung.
There are also painting kits now that have a simple outline of an image, rather than small numbered sections.
These kits are great for those who want the helpfulness of an outline, but want more freedom to choose whatever colors they want and practice their own creative blending.
You’ll find more image options with a paint by numbers kit than with an outlined painting kit, but you’ll get more artistic freedom with the outlined painting kit.
The outlined painting kits will come with the colors they want you to use based on the image they’ve created, but you’re free to mix it up and choose other colors without totally ruining the image.
For example, you can change the color of the shirt the person in the painting is wearing, or change the overall background color behind the subject.
Includes Video Tutorial
For those who truly want the paint and sip at home experience, we recommend simply grabbing the painting supplies you’ll need and finding a video tutorial.
This will most closely replicate the paint and sip experience since you’ll still start with a blank canvas and simply follow the directions of the instructor.
You can find a lot of great video tutorials for painting online. The man, the myth, the legend himself, Bob Ross is a popular choice for paint and sip at home parties, like this video tutorial of Island in the Wilderness.
We also highly recommend this sunset painting video from easypeasy art.
For another option, we like this Forest Trees Mountain Landscape painting video from AhmadArt.
Neither of these videos has verbal instructions, but the video can be paused and replayed to pick up anything you might have missed while watching.

Paint By Numbers Kits
1. Arteza Paint by Number For Adults
The Arteza Paint by Number for Adults kit is the best option in the paint by numbers category.
We love it because it’s a beautiful yet easy to paint design, while also coming from a reputable brand in the art space: Arteza.
Arteza is already known and loved for their acrylic paints, so you can rest assured that you’re getting good quality paints in this set.
It also comes with 5 paintbrushes while many sets only come with 3, so you’ll have more brush options to work with to cover those large areas or fill in those tiny details.
The design in the link above is their floral design, but they also have other design options, including a boat, butterfly, hot air balloon, turtle, and more.
Keep in mind that this is a paint by numbers kit, so the canvas will not arrive pre-stretched on a wooden frame.
2. COLORWORK DIY Paint By Numbers Rocky Mountain Sunset
This COLORWORK DIY Paint by Numbers kit is another fantastic option, coming in a close second to Arteza.
With so many good reviews, you can guess that this is a paint by numbers kit that will be easy to work with and result in a beautiful painting.
This set comes with all the paints you’ll need, 3 paintbrushes, the numbered canvas, and a small triangle hanging attachment to hang up your finished artwork after you’ve mounted the canvas on a frame.
3. CKYUE Paint By Numbers Three Beautiful Flowers
This paint by numbers set is another popular product.
The beautiful design of 3 white flowers on a blue background is a perfect addition to any home. It would blend seamlessly with many styles of home décor and other artwork.
This painting kit comes with 3 paintbrushes, all the paints you’ll need, the numbered canvas, and 2 triangle hanging attachments for you to hang up the final product after you’ve framed or stretched the canvas.
4. Dimensions Home At Sunset Paint By Numbers Kit
Dimensions is another popular brand for paint by numbers kits, and if you’re ready to step up to the next level of difficulty, this one may just be for you.
This intermediate design of a brick home on a lake at sunset can pose a challenge and may be best for multiple paint and sip party sessions, as it will take several hours to complete.
Don’t let that stop you, though! The final product will be sure to impress your friends and guests when they see it hanging on your wall.
This kit includes everything you’ll need, such as the paints, a paintbrush, and the numbered canvas. Just remember that the canvas is not already stretched onto a wooden frame, so you’ll need to frame it before hanging.
5. KOSE Paint By Numbers Night Lake
The final option in the paint by numbers category is another one that will be best suited for those who are more intermediate or advanced, but will be well worth the higher difficulty.
This night lake portrait by KOSE is a stunning paint by numbers kit that will be best used for multiple paint and sip sessions.
Included in this kit are the paints, 3 paintbrushes, and the numbered canvas. This canvas is not pre-stretched and will need to be framed before it can be hung.
Outlined Canvas Painting Kits
6. Journi Canvas Paint Party Kit Pre-Drawn Outline Canvas
Your first option for an outlined design on a canvas kit is the paint party kit from Journi Canvas.
Journi Canvas has several kits available, and you can find some of the other painting options here.
These kits include a 12×16” canvas that has been stretched and outlined with the design on the front. All you have to do is paint, let it dry, and hang it up!
These kits include 5 paintbrushes, all the paints you’ll need, a disposable easel to work on as well as a disposable apron to protect your clothes, and a paint palette.
7. Oceroll Canvas Painting Kit Bundle
Another outlined canvas option that would make a great date night or best friends’ paint and sip night is this set of 2 canvases.
Each 8×10” canvas is already stretched and comes with an outline on the canvas for you to fill in.
The kit comes with 2 paint palettes, 2 paintbrushes, 2 canvases, 2 aprons, and 12 unique paint colors for you to blend and use as you please.
The great thing about this kit is that if you don’t want to do it with someone else, you can have 2 paint and sip sessions for yourself!
8. Indigo Art Studio Canvas Painting Kit Bundle
Another 2 pack option for those looking to use a pre-drawn painting kit is this Sneakers Love Couple set from Indigo Art Studio.
We love this set because although the sneaker designs are already outlined on the canvases, you can choose to use the 16 neon colors however you want! You have full artistic freedom in the sneaker design.
This painting kit comes with 2 11×14” stretched canvases, 16 paint colors, 2 disposable smocks, 2 paint palettes, 6 paintbrushes, and a color mixing guide and image sample to help get you started.
Paint Supplies Kits For Video Tutorials
9. Art Studio Live – Acrylic Paint Kit
If you want more of a true paint and sip experience and want more artistic freedom, then this Art Studio Live acrylic painting kit is the perfect choice for you.
This kit comes with everything you’ll need to complete your painting: an 11×14” stretched canvas, 6 acrylic paint colors, a paint palette, and 3 paintbrushes.
Purchasing this kit also gives you access to an online tutorial video that can be streamed and played up to 10 times.
This can help if you didn’t find a painting tutorial video that you liked on YouTube and wanted to check out a new video library.
10. Aroic Professional Painting Set with Easels
If you want to have a bigger paint and sip party, we recommend this set of 6 painting packs.
In this kit, you’ll receive 6 easels, 6 paint palettes, and 6 packs of 10 paintbrushes. Of course, you’ll also need to purchase some canvases and acrylic paints separately.
Although it may seem like a drawback to have to purchase some supplies separately, this kit is still perfect for those looking to host a larger paint and sip party with friends and family.
11. J Mark Deluxe Painting Kits for Adults
This acrylic paint kit from J Mark is ideal for those looking to do multiple paint and sip sessions on their own at home.
It comes with 1 extendable wooden easel, 6 canvases in 2 different sizes, 24 acrylic paints, 2 paint palettes, 3 paint sponges, 10 brushes, 2 paint knives, and a color mixing wheel.
Even though you’ll be getting a lot of supplies in this kit, it’s still best for only 1 person since it only comes with 1 easel. You can extend the fun by picking up a couple other easels or simply laying the canvas on a table.
