What Is Diamond Painting?

Diamond Painting is a new craft hobby that's a mix between Paint By Numbers and Cross Stitch. With Diamond Painting, you apply thousands of tiny resin "diamonds" to a coded adhesive canvas to create shimmering Diamond Art.

Diamond Painting was introduced to North America and Europe by the Paint With Diamonds™ company in 2017. Since then, millions of crafters around the world have discovered the joy and stress-relieving benefits of Diamond Painting.

Step-By-Step Diamond Painting Instructions
Step 1: Remove all items from the package.
Each Diamond Painting Kit comes with everything you need to get started. Take stock of your canvas, set of diamonds, toolkit, wax pad, and tweezers.

Step 2: Lay your canvas out on a clean flat surface or workstation.
Roll your canvas out on a perfectly smooth and flat surface. Kitchen and dining room tables work wonders. Advanced Diamond Painters head over to Amazon and search for crafting tables.

Step 3: Select a color or symbol and pour diamonds into the tray.
Determine which section of your Diamond Painting canvas you want to start painting. Select the appropriate diamonds and pour a small amount into the grooved tray. Shake lightly so that diamonds shift upright.

Step 4: Apply wax to the tip of your Diamond Pen.
Peel back the plastic film on the pink wax pads and apply a small amount of wax to the tip of your Diamond Pen. The wax acts combines with the static cling and acts almost like a Diamond magnet.

Step 5: Place each diamond in its corresponding square on the canvas
Each color diamond corresponds to a specific symbol or character on the canvas. Check the legend on the side of the canvas to figure out which symbol corresponds to each color. Colors are denoted using DMC threads. Peel back the protective film covering in small sections and begin painting. DO NOT REMOVE THIS PLASTIC FILM ALL AT ONCE.

Step 6: Repeat the process until you have shimmering Diamond Art!
Work your way across the canvas diamond by diamond until you have a gorgeous DIY Diamond Painting! To increase the longevity of your Diamond Painting, consider sealing it before you put it on display! Diamond Paintings were meant to be enjoyed from afar - take a step back and marvel at the beauty.
