Diamond painting on canvas: how does it work?
If you want to get started with a diamond painting project on canvas, you need several things. First of all, of course: a piece of canvas on which an image is pre-printed. This makes it a lot easier to actually create a beautiful piece of art. Luckily, this is the case with all Diamond Painting canvas kits from Crafts & Co. Then you need: a pen, a shaker, a piece of wax and, of course, leather pebbles. To make your own work of art from diamond painting stones, you follow the colours by number. You sort your stones, take your pen and dip it into the piece of wax, so that the stone of your choice sticks directly to the pen. You can then simply place this on the work of art. The image appears by itself!
What is so great about diamond painting on canvas?
When you get to work with the diamond painting stones on a piece of canvas, you see the result immediately. With every stone that you place, you see a work of art emerge. That is what makes this hobby so much fun. You are busy being creative and at the end you have a tangible creation to hang on the wall. Diamond painting is suitable for young and old, from 6 to 99 years of age. So you can start by yourself, but also together with your child or grandchild!
Tips and tricks for diamond painting on canvas
When you start your diamond painting on canvas, it's best to start at the top. Should the canvas move unexpectedly, then it only slides a little to the top instead of sliding down. It is also advisable to secure the corners of your canvas. You can do this, for example, with tape or a drawing pin on a cork base. Also important: make sure that there are no air bubbles under your canvas. By pressing the canvas flat, you will get the best result. Finally: ensure that your materials are well structured and arranged. This is easily achieved with the super handy Crafts & Co diamond painting storage box.
