How To Do Diamond Painting
Diamond Painting is taking the world by storm! It's an inspiring and invigorating craft where paintings spring to life before your eyes.
The painter uses tiny colored "Drills", which have a flat side and a 5D top side, and places them on a color-coordinated sticky canvas.
As each piece is put in place the picture becomes more clear. Think of it as painting by numbers meets jigsaw puzzles.
