What is Diamond Painting?

Diamond painting is a wonderful combination of mosaics, paint-by-numbers, and cross-stitching. Diamond paintings use small “diamond”-like resin stones to create colorful and intricate designs and patterns.

The finished designs offer a beautiful sparkle and create a stunning image. Applying the “diamonds” to the canvas is a very easy process that is stress-relieving and relaxing. This craft will provide you with hours of relaxation and enjoyment as you create beautiful designs that can become new home decor or a great gift! Our diamond paintings come in a wide variety of sizes and styles, making this the perfect DIY project for all to enjoy.

The next action is to split/open the fabric design. However, you need to be cautious here because it is usually covered with a film.

Do not obliterate the film because the sticky appearance of the fabric can destroy your work. So, you should remove the film gradually, starting from the tip, while you carry on with your work. And if there is a need to pause, cover the fabric back with the film to avoid the accumulation of dust or external substances.
