Step By Step Guide to Master Your First Diamond Painting
Open & Lay the Canvas On a Flat, Smooth Surface
To create a sparkling mosaic artwork with colorful diamonds, simply unbox the entire kit, to begin with. Roll open the canvas onto a flat surface be it a kitchen slab or workstation.
Decode & Pour Diamonds
Decode the portion you wish to begin with, pick the right diamonds, and pour them into the grooved tray. Shaking the tray slightly will help shift diamonds upright for you to easily pick them.
Apply Wax on the Stylus
Our wax works as a magnet for the diamonds. So, dip the stylus into the wax and press it to apply it to the tip.
Identify & Pick the Right Diamonds
Each diamond box has a symbol or character assigned to it. Using color-coded charts, figure out the color that should be placed into a box. Then peel off the plastic adhesive film off the canvas very slightly from the portion you wish to work on first.
Place the Diamonds Onto the Canvas
Pick the diamonds by pressing the stylus on the diamonds rounded top faces. Then, continue placing the diamonds into their specified boxes until the dazzling artwork SHINES BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND on the canvas!
Seal It off
To ensure the longevity of the painting by diamond artwork, seal it properly before putting it on a display.
And feel proud of yourself for coming so far. It will hang there as a reminder that you can do anything you set your mind to. Trust us, this is the best part of each painting by diamond—the soul-satisfying end result.
