Below is step by step instructions on how to get started. It ’s very straightforward, Everyone can do it.
- Your Diamond Painting Kit will include canvas, the diamond applicator (commonly known as a stylus), a small block of wax and tray that is often called a boat to hold your diamonds.
- Lay out the canvas on a flat surface. You will notice that on the side of the painting there is a chart with your diamonds that are labeled with a number that corresponds to a symbol. Just match the corresponding color of diamonds to the symbols and place them on the canvas.
- Choose a single color diamond to get started with. Pour a small number of diamonds in the tray. If you hold the tray it at a slight angle and gently shake it, the diamonds will become right side up, so they are facing the correct way to pick them up with the applicator.
- Peel back a small section of the plastic film to work on at one time. It's best and easiest to work on a small part at a time. It is essential to keep the canvas covered when you aren't working on it.
