The diamond painting was created in 2015, it was designed for an easier, faster and therapeutic way for cross-stitching. With diamond painting, you apply small resins “diamonds” to an adhesive canvas to create vibrant mosaic paintings.

How to do diamond painting
Unpack and Flatten your canvas
Unroll your canvas, tape each corner of your canvas to a flat surface, if the canvas cant be straighten this way try going over it with a rolling pin. If there are creases don’t worry they will go away when you start your diamond painting.
Prepare your tools and diamonds
Open your bag of diamonds and pour them into the grooved tray. Shake lightly so the flat side of the diamond is on the bottom. Peel back the film on the red wax pad. Take your diamond pen and stab the wax pad to get a tiny bit of wax on it.
Place your diamonds
Peel back the film on your canvas. We recommend starting with the lower end to avoid getting adhesive on your hands. Check the legend on the side of the canvas to see which color corresponds to each symbol. Place the correct color on its corresponding symbol.
Frame your canvas and share it. After you are done place some weight on the canvas and allow it to settle. Find a frame for your canvas. Take a picture and share it on your social media and see likes come in.
