Your own masterpieces
by Shanese J (5 out of 5 stars)
September 28, 2016

The size of this book, the amount of details, artwork, and perforated pages are great! There are also some tips in the front of the book to help you along the way. In one of the tips, it mentioned using either a toothpick or tweezers to help you place the stickers. It would be a nice addition if either of those were included with the book. Some of the stickers are a bit small (Yep, I'm looking at you, Breezing Up - Winslow Homer) but the end product is well worth it. On another art piece, I noticed that a few stickers aren't fully cut on some of the sticker pages which causes a little snafu when trying to pick them up.

Also, the book mentions that the stickers are sticky, which makes you think that they can't be moved once placed on the page, this is not the case unless you have the strength of Thor while pressing the stickers down.

Hopefully, there'll be more of these 'Masterpiece' books in the future!

Manufacturing flaws in this edition.
by Jennifer (3 out of 5 stars)
September 30, 2016

I am so very disappointed by the quality of this book. I bought the last one and I loved it, this time they must have gotten a different manufacturer. The pictures are very nice, but the stickers are not cut correctly on several of the sheets (don't always completely fill the shape) - or not cut thoroughly - so they tear in a way they did not with the first book.

So addicting!
by Katie Marie (5 out of 5 stars)

I've literally lost hours (not to mentiong functioning neck muscles) working on these. I even framed one of my favorite and put it up on my desk at work. It's amazing to see these pictures form as you place even the tiniest of stickers. I highly recommend using a pair of tweezers. It makes it much easy to see where your stickers are going without your fingers getting in the way. Some of the stickers are slightly smaller than their shape or are a hair too big and overlap but I think it gives the pictures some extra character. Plus, you hardly notice once the final product is complete. This is a great product for those with patience and idle hands!

Addictive new hobby!
by KikiSt4r (5 out of 5 stars)
April 10, 2017

I found a dangerous new hobby. It's addictive! This is relaxing, not messy, and in the end you feel like you created art! I plan to laminate some of my best pieces and hang them.

I see many folks commenting about how the sticker pieces aren't cut out perfectly. It's supposed to look like a mosaic puzzle in the end, and that's the beauty of it.

Use tweezers to help positioning and sticking of the stickers, especially the small ones. In fact, I use tweezers the whole time. It helps with precision if you're a perfectionist such as myself.

I love it! JUST USE TWEEZERS WITH IT
by IHF FAMILY (5 out of 5 stars)
August 7, 2018

I SUPER enjoy these, and it's wayyyy easier on my joints than coloring and knitting and than basically all the other hobbies I've had over the years. I dig it, and this was my third of these books that I own! In fact, I just ordered my fourth one (it's paint by sticker: birds). I hope this review helps!

PS - you absolutely need to have some tweezers on hand whenever you want to do this. You "can" use your hands instead, but it's quite literally impossible to do it well without them. You don't need anything fancy, except I seriously recommend either the kind with the flat, straight edge at a 90 degree angle or the flat straight ones at like a 45 degree angle. Basically, NOT the ones with the pointed tip. You could super easily tear a hole in your stickers with those!

Great gift for the art lover
by MamaUnicorn (5 out of 5 stars)
May 16, 2017

I love coloring but the whole adult coloring books were really of no interest to me. When I saw that they now make paint by sticker books I was really interested in trying one out. I have a art history background so when I saw this book I bought it instantly. I have found myself getting lost in doing the works of art. It's fun to do and easy. The price is such a great deal through Amazon. Beautiful colors and detail. I really hope they come out with more art masterpiece books since I am almost done with this one.

Super fun for "kids" of all ages!
by Julie Ann Kurfis (5 out of 5 stars)
September 23, 2016

These sticker by number books are very fun! My girls, ages 11 & 14 really enjoy them and so do I! It's great that the picture and corresponding sticker pages can be torn out of the book, so everyone can be working on their own picture at once. I'd highly recommend this as a fun creative outlet!

Stickers aren't too sticky
by Cupquake (4 out of 5 stars)
July 20, 2019

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this immensely for the price! I'd even have paid the $15 cover price.

Here's where I see room for improvement:

I have trouble with the stickers wanting to come off the paper quite frequently, even though I use tweezers to keep my skin oils off.

The sticker sheets are also cut too "deep" in some cases - I had the sticker and backing come out a handful of times, leaving a big hole in the sheet. Just an annoyance.

Some of the stickers are a bit too large, some a bit too small. It's to be expected but as a rule of thumb I'd MUCH prefer they be too large so I can overlap. The small white spaces really irk me.

There is no orientation given for the stickers. A lot of them look symmetrical to me, only to find out it's slightly different on one side. Which means I have to peel it up (which wrinkles/creases it), rotate it, and place it again.

Great gift idea
by Stefanie IHeartBritishTV (5 out of 5 stars)
May 25, 2017

I bought this for my 5-year-old nephew, and it was very well-received. As an adult, I loved the vibrant colors and recognizable artworks, but I worried it would be too detailed for tiny fingers. It turned out to be just fine, though. The child in question gets in a lot of LEGO time, and has no trouble manipulating small things. If your child still struggles with that, though, you might consider one of the simpler paint-by-sticker titles. There are some made just for kids.

Overall, this is a really fun idea and it makes a great, cheap gift.

Not perfect, but still pretty fun
by Amazon Customer (4 out of 5 stars)
December 28, 2018

Ended up doing the pictured page with an razor blade knife (one of the thin olfa style). Probably not the safest, but needed it to cut out the stickers that weren't fully cut out by the manufacturer and it also helped with positioning the little stickers). There was one sticker that was called for two different places (D17 for the eye and part of the head wrap) and I ended up cutting a new one out of the background color of a different sticker section. Soooooo...what a pain, right? Why the 4-star review? Because I still really liked doing it, ended up with a pretty nice picture, and love the Masterpieces theme for this book. Only buy this if you're ready for an imperfect process that--with the right attitude, knife, and patience-- you'll still feel pretty good about accomplishing in the end.
