How to set up a virtual paint and sip party.
Painting parties, paint and sip, paint and prosecco, paint nights, whatever you want to call them, they have become pretty popular in recent years. During the last 2 years of covid, virtual paint and sip events have risen in popularity. They're the perfect opportunity to connect with colleagues, friends and family.
We have run virtual events for thousands of people since March 2020. We have sent out approximately 6000 parcels and have hosted global events for family, friends and teams.
What do you need for a Paint party?
We keep our equipment lists and our event packs simple.
For a virtual paint night you’ll need:
A surface to paint on such as canvas, cartridge paper or even board.
A pot of water
Choosing your equipment
When choosing your paint, look for student or artist quality acrylics. Artist quality paint will have a higher pigment, and will produce bolder paintings, though the paints will be more expensive.
You don't need much paint, so you can go for the smaller 10-12ml tubes. Our basic palette is always black, white, blue, red and yellow. You can buy a set with more colours and experiment a bit.
When you book your event with us, we can provide all the equipment you need and post it directly to you and all your attendees. This means that everyone has the same kit as each other, and the artist.
You will need to lay down some newspaper, a waterproof table cloth or even use the cardboard from one of our postal boxes to protect your table. You can then unwrap your canvas, fill up a pot with water (an old jam jar works perfectly), open your paints and get your brushes and palette ready. Position your laptop, tablet or mobile phone so you can see it and don’t have to lean down. You may also want to put on an old t-shirt or apron to protect your clothes.
If you are hosting a paint and sip, or paint and prosecco style event, you will also need to get your beverage of choice ready. A cup of tea is also a great way to relax and unwind with painting.
We can supply beverages, crisps, sweet bags, chocolate… or anything else you may fancy! We work with some fantastic suppliers to provide non-alcoholic and alcoholic cocktails too.
