What is Diamond Painting?

Diamond Painting is a fantastic DIY Art, that lets you be the artist. It's a cross between Paint by Numbers & Cross Stitch.  The colors actually used in Diamond Paintings are based on the  same as the Cross Stitch threads. (DMC Chart).

Diamond Painting is known to be one of the most effective crafts to help you relax and relieve stress and anxiety.  It's so easy to become addicted to this fun craft, so watch out! 
The process can look a bit scary at the start, but it is actually quite simple. Once you know what to do, you can find the project both relaxing and rewarding.

REWARD YOURSELF AND OTHERS

You'll find diamond painting to be such a rewarding hobby because you can create beautiful pieces of shining art that you can give as gifts for birthdays, weddings, Father's Day and Mother's Day, and Christmas etc.  They are also great to give away to charities so they can auction your art off to raise money! 

What a way to help others in need by doing something you love!

A GREAT GIFT IDEA

Imagine presenting a beautiful diamond painting that you created to a friend or family for their birthday or Christmas. Or even a kit for them to try too.

Diamond painting has been known to RELIEVE STRESS and is considered as art therapy! 

It takes your mind off everyday problems and takes you into a new creative world.  It has definitely helped me as a sufferer of anxiety!

WHO would enjoy creating Diamond Paintings?

Great for anyone who loves art & craft - If you enjoy cross stitch, embroidery or paint by numbers you will most definitely love diamond painting!

It's also a great project to do in a group. So easy to chat with a friend at the same time while you both complete your crafts! (and maybe with a glass of Wine!)

HOW TO DIAMOND PAINT

6 steps to Diamond painting TSA

THE ELEMENTS OF DIAMOND PAINTING

1. THE ADHESIVE/GLUE

WE OFFER  2 types of glue - POURED GLUE & MOUNTING FILM ADHESIVE for your diamond painting canvas!  

To choose between them, please use the drop down field under  "Size" and "Diamond shape" and choose your preferred glue!

Please Note: Both glues are applied in the same Diamond Painting factory so there is no change in the quality of the canvas or drills, it is just the glue that is changed!. The poured glue also cost NO EXTRA than the mounting film adhesive!

Why does the glue that sticks your diamonds to the canvas really matter?? 

We have always prided ourselves on using the strongest adhesive available for our  diamond paintings called Mounting Film Adhesive, so your Diamonds never fall off the canvas for years to come. However, there has been a strong demand for us to offer the option of the traditional Poured Glue method as well, so we have listened to our customers and now offer BOTH types of glue for every full coverage Diamond painting that we offer!

Please read below the difference between the 2 glues and which one suits you! 

    1. Mounting film adhesive - This is our regular extra strong glue & is great for medium to advanced diamond painters. When the drills are first placed they are harder to adjust into position as the glue is quite strong, but with tweezers they can be lifted and repositioned easily. The canvas is covered with a thick clear cover.

    2. Poured Glue  - traditionally used on most diamond painting canvases and is more forgiving, allowing you to move or "slide" the drills into position easier without using tweezers. Great for beginners or lovers of poured glue. The canvas is covered with a thin clear cover.

Now you ask....Why  offer 2 types of Glue?

Well....., We have always believed that poured glue is the inferior glue to our Mounting Film adhesive and initially decided not to introduce it as we felt using an inferior glue for our product would go against our values for keeping the standards high for our diamond paintings. We have had various Poured glue samples in the studio for 4 years and they have definitely not faired the test of time. The glue on the canvas has yellowed considerably, went hard and brittle and the cover has now stuck to it making it hard to remove. This told us that the glue is not acid free, meaning it will not last in storage for more than 1 year, not last after you have placed diamonds on it and have hung it on the wall etc.  To us, this was not an ideal glue to use on our product.

However, there has been such a demand from our customers to offer  the poured glue method for our diamond paintings for many reasons such as it's "forgiveness" of creases in the canvas; it is easier to move drills on the canvas after you have placed them and it has a thinner cover that is easier to handle. The reason we gave in to offer this glue is that we now believe that the glue has improved in quality over the past 4 years and is now ready to be used again by Treasure Studios Art! So let's Celebrate the release of Poured Glue!!!

2. THE CANVAS

You have the privilege to work with a high grade definition printed canvas with easy to read crystal clear symbols. The colors are vibrant and easy to work with. There is nothing worse than squinting to see what each symbol is - even with your glasses on!!

  • Our Kits have a full pasting area of drills/diamonds (not partial)
  • Please refer to size selector above for all sizes available - there is usually between 2 & 4 sizes available. 
  • If you are looking for a smaller size (eg 20x20cm) and it is not listed, this means that this particular image is not suitable for a small size. It contains a lot of detail and the effect will not be clear enough in a small size canvas
  • TIP! The largest size is always going to give you the best result and detail in any painting. The smallest size available will always give you the less detail. Features such as eyes and faces will not be as clear as a larger painting. 

3. THE DIAMONDS (AKA DRILLS)

There are three different types of Diamonds (drills) that we offer:
Square Diamonds : 2.5mm 
Round Diamonds : 2.7mm 
Crystal Rhinestones (Round & Sparkly) : 2.7mm
Special Shaped Diamonds: various sizes and shaped crystals & gems
    The most common shape are square drills, as they are easier to fit together onto the canvas and "square up" but round drills are very pretty and  a lot of people prefer to work with them. It comes down to a personal choice really!

    The Special Shaped diamond paintings are usually a combination of round drills and different crystals and gems to give the painting a different sparkly edge!

    • With all kits you can choose between either square or round diamonds and in some cases, crystal rhinestones which will be an option if it suits the painting.
    • The shape of the diamond/drill will be displayed in the selector next to the sizes available, so please make sure you choose the shape you prefer or the default shape of square drill will be applied automatically.
    • All canvas sizes are in CM and represent the size of the actual painting and not the canvas size. The canvas has an extra 2cm on each side around the picture making the actual size of the canvas and extra 4cm longer and wider than the picture size stated

    WHAT IS  THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A  PARTIAL & A FULL DRILL PAINTING?

    Before you purchase, check the description of each product you view to whether it is a Full or Partial painting.
    A "Partial" Drill is when the canvas is not completely covered in diamonds. Only the main part of the image will be sticky and be able to apply diamonds to it and usually the background will not be sticky and no diamonds will be applied to it. 
    A "Full" Drill is when the entire image on the canvas will be completely covered in diamonds when you are finished. 

    WHAT SIZE DO I PURCHASE & WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

    The larger the size chosen, the more diamonds used which creates a more detailed image and a better effect. The smaller the size you choose the less the detail. When you choose a smaller size it is like looking at a photograph that is heavily pixelated. (if you understand DPI (Dots Per Square Inch) then you will know what I mean.  Remember this is an unfinished DIY Diamond Painting Kit and you need to finish it and make it your own!
