What is Diamond Painting?

Diamond Painting is the new hot do it yourself craft. It's a cross between paint by numbers and cross stitch, by using resin diamond gems to create a beautiful masterpiece. Each kit comes with a pen, tray, glue pad, diamonds, and a sticky canvas with a color-coded guide on it, which corresponds with the provided diamonds. 

 

How To Diamond Paint:

Step One: Take your pen and push the tip into the provided glue pad

Step 2: Pour your diamonds into the tray (one color at a time), and use your pen to pick them up (when it becomes hard to pick them up use the glue pad again)

Step 3: Use the color-coded guide on the canvas and find the corresponding letter or number that matches the diamonds you poured into your tray (each pack of diamonds has a number written on it)

Step 4: Continue placing diamonds onto the sticky canvas in their correct spaces until all spots are filled.

Step 5: Seal your project. We recommend using Minwax Polycrylic to seal for a long-term hold

Step 6:

Option A: Cut off the edges and put into a frame

Option B: Keep the edges intact, use acrylic paint to paint the edges to hide the wording and color guide and wrap around a stretched canvas board. You can glue the painting to the canvas board using a tacky glue or crafting glue or you can use an industrial stapler and staple the edges to back of the canvas (see our Facebook page for a how-to video)
