Fifty years ago, SCHIPPER was the first German manufacturer to launch the painting technique “Painting by Numbers” in Germany that originated from the USA. Supreme quality, different picture formats and compositions and a wide range of motifs have been very popular with young and old hobby artists ever since.
SCHIPPER Arts & Crafts has brought the Painting by Numbers technique to extraordinary perfection and to a supreme quality level. This painting technique can hardly be recognized when looking at the paintings. It is our ambition that everybody be able to produce a small work of art without previous knowledge.
SCHIPPER stands for:
Outstanding quality of all materials.
A wide choice for every taste and group of age:
children, adolescents and adults will find an appealing motif:
Different painting techniques:
Frames made from aluminum profiles
to fit every furniture style, available in nearly all picture formats.
“Paint Your Darling”– Convert a photo into a painting!
A picture processing program that was developed by SCHIPPER Arts & Crafts transforms a portrait photo into a painting template in line with the Painting by Numbers technique. Every hobby painter can produce a portrait of his particular darling by himself. The finished painting in colors or in black-and-white is a reproduction of the photo with the character and expressiveness of an artwork.
We have been constantly developing and launching new motifs for paintwork under the brand “SCHIPPER Arts & Crafts” in Germany. The rules that apply to a Painting by Numbers artwork are different than those for a painting that is freely designed by an artist. Every draft must be adapted very thoroughly in accordance with the Painting by Numbers technique without losing any of its charming nature. This painstaking and laborious hand work is performed by highly gifted artists, illustrators and graphic designers.
Our products are exclusively manufactured at the headquarter location of SIMBA-DICKIE-GROUP in Fürth, Werkstrasse 1. Our production facilities cover the following departments: mixing of colors, filling of color pots, production of painting templates and final packing plus storage rooms for semi-finished and finished products. All the materials we use are non-hazardous and recyclable.
The name SCHIPPER stands for a superior quality of all materials we use:
Spare paint service
SCHIPPER maintains a spare paint service because it may happen once in a while when painting in line with the Painting by Numbers technique that the hobby painter is in trouble with his paints, be it they do not suffice or be it they are dry due to a longer break. More information ...
Permanent quality checks
During and after production, all our materials are examined and checked. Special quality checks apply to the paints. We particularly test their opacity and there are special tests regarding leak tightness and tests under warm and cold conditions to which the mixed colors in the pots are subject to. Moreover, the so-called “ISO Certification” many of our suppliers adhere to guarantees that we purchase impeccable materials and components.
