What is Diamond Art Painting?

Like a combination of cross-stitch and paint-by-numbers, diamond painting is the new creative hobby that’s taking the crafting world by storm. You simply apply colorful resin rhinestones to richly pigmented canvas paintings. The result? Visually dazzling, mosaic diamond artworks that sparkle, shimmer and shine.

Why Try Diamond Painting? 

People describe diamond painting as more relaxing than any other craft because of how calming it feels to place the diamonds one by one. The hours fly by as you channel your creativity into a stunning finished artwork.

It’s fun, easy—and it's for everyone. Whether you’re an experienced crafter or looking for your first creative outlet, you can make beautiful diamond art with little effort and no mess!

It’s the new hobby that lets you unwind while creating something you’ll be proud of.


Diamond Painting Instructions

Creating your diamond art painting is a straightforward, three-step process:

  1. Dip the tip of the applicator tool into the strip of wax.
  2. Pick up each diamond by pressing the applicator to the diamond's rounded, faceted side.
  3. Apply each diamond to the adhesive canvas template, placing it based on the color-coded chart.

That's it! Enjoy the absorbing process of adding diamond by diamond until your masterpiece is complete! With Diamond Art Club, the creative process is stress-free because we only sell premium diamond art kits with everything you need to get started.


The Diamond Art Club™ Difference

Diamond art kits range from simple to sophisticated, depending on the size and detail of the painting. You'll easily find the right project to suit your interests and abilities.

Not all diamond art paintings are equal. Some feel like a chore because the kits aren’t well made. Additionally, if the colors aren’t vivid or the diamonds aren’t truly sparkly, you’ll be disappointed after hours spent creating.

At Diamond Art Club, we only use premium canvases and the most reflective diamonds. We also license genuinely unique works of art you won’t find elsewhere.

That’s why only Diamond Art Club paintings look even better in real life than they do online!

Round diamonds: These kits are easier and faster to use. Note: You will see the colors of the canvas between the round diamonds. Many of our painters love this look.

Square diamonds: This shape takes longer to place, but fit together edge-to-edge with no canvas showing for a complete mosaic effect.

    Helpful Diamond Painting Tips

    Diamond art painting is simple, easy and perfect for creatives of all ages.

    To get from kit to masterpiece quicker, follow these simple diamond painting tips:

    • Lay all materials on a flat surface, organized and within easy reach. Select a section of the painting to work on first.
    • Review the coded chart on the canvas to identify the colors in that section. Choose one color to begin and locate the corresponding packet of diamonds.
    • Deposit the packet of diamonds in the small tray provided.
    • Gently shake the tray back and forth so the diamonds settle with the flat side down. The faceted side must be facing up when you use the applicator to pick each diamond up.
    • Slowly remove the plastic film from the canvas as you work section by section to protect the design from dust and keep the adhesive from wearing off.
    • Apply diamonds starting at the bottom corner of the design, carefully working your way up the canvas.
    • After each session, cover the wax on the applicator with cellophane. Replace the plastic film over the area on which you were working.
    • Once the painting is complete, place the plastic protective film on top of the diamonds. Use a rolling pin or book to carefully and gently press the canvas, securing diamonds firmly into place.
