Diamond Painting - An Art for All
Have you ever wondered why, as children, we always loved to spend hours rubbing crayons on blank, crisp pages? The fervor of filling our blank canvases with vibrant colors is unexplainable but with age we become too restricted to be bold enough to bring back that same elation in our lives. The result of which is often our blank lives, full of stress and worries. To unwind our minds and bring little joy in our lives, we must seek activities which de-stress us and revive the tidbit of carefree attitude of our childhood. What could be better than bringing colors back in our lives, but this time, instead of crayons, let’s try something more challenging - The paintings done with diamonds.
How was the Diamond Painting originated?
This is not something we are not aware of; making art with beads and pearls had been centuries old craft. People had been making beautiful embroidered patterns via beads and sequins all their lives. But what is different about Diamond Painting is that now you don’t have to stitch each bead or drill, as it is called, instead, you stick these sparkly diamonds on your printed canvases.

Things you should keep in mind!
Although Painting with diamonds is a therapeutic activity, it should not be considered as an alternate to the actual psychiatric help. Your mild depression can be cured by diamond art but if you are experiencing severe depression and mental health issues, it is recommended that you seek professional help too.
Some questions that might be bothering you!
Before getting started with paint with diamonds, there are few basics about diamond painting that you have to keep in mind in order to make it easier for you to work with drills. Firstly, there are two kind of drills, round ones and square ones. If you are one of the perfectionists, square drills are the ones for you as they give complete coverage whereas the round ones are for those who want to give an artsy touch to their paintings.
For all the environmentalists in the house, we care for the environment as much as you do, so believe you me, drills are completely safe to use. Made from resin, they are eco-friendly and have no harmful effects. Just make sure kids under 3 don’t use them as these are too tiny and children can swallow them.
It will be great if you divide your canvas in sections. Instead of doing the whole thing at a time, smaller sections become easier to be filled. Don’t remove the sticky sheet of whole canvas, instead only reveal the part you want to work with. It is not always possible to complete the whole print at a time and removing the sheet again and again will eventually make it difficult for the drills to get stuck.
Applicators come in variety of sizes. If you wish to complete your painting quickly you can always buy an applicator which allows you to stick more than one drill at a time. Some applicators allow you to stick 8 to 10 drills at a time.
Once completed you can always get your prints framed and exhibit them in your homes. Nothing is more satiating than a beautifully hand-crafted piece of art ornamenting your home. It should be noted that the kit does not have a frame with it. You will have to get it made or order from us at an additional charge.
We believe in customer satisfaction therefore we don’t ever compromise on the quality of our product. Without hesitating you can simply order online and we will make sure that the kit gets delivered to you in minimum time.
All you have to do is place an order by simply choosing your print and stating the size you want and tada! Your work is done.
