DIAMOND ART :
Like a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers, diamond painting is the new creative hobby that’s taking the crafting world by storm.
You simply apply colorful resin rhinestones to richly-pigmented canvas paintings.
The result? Visually dazzling, mosaic diamond artworks that sparkle, shimmer, and shine.
Forget About Time as the Beauty Emerges
People describe diamond painting as more relaxing than any other craft because of how calming it feels to place the diamonds one by one. The hours fly by as you channel your creativity into a stunning finished artwork.
It’s fun, easy — and it’s for everyone. Whether you’re an experienced crafter or looking for your first creative outlet, you can make beautiful diamond art with little effort and no mess!
It’s the new hobby that lets you unwind while creating something you’ll be proud of.
Being an Artist has Never Been So Simple
Creating your diamond art painting is a straightforward, three-step process:
- Dip the tip of applicator tool into the strip of wax
- Pick up each diamond by pressing the applicator to diamond’s rounded, faceted side
- Apply each diamond to the adhesive canvas template, placing it based on the color-coded chart
