Diamond Art

Post: # 772Post Teg »

Have any of you have every experienced the very tedious, repetitive, yet completely relaxing thing they call diamond art? It's where they have hundreds of thousands of small square/diamond shaped beads that you have to stick onto a canvas to create a picture/painting. You can have them custom ordered to include pretty much any picture you want whether it's a photograph of a pet or other loved one. Would this be considered crafting or more like a hobby? For those who have experimented with it, what do you like and dislike about it?

I know someone who does this & they enjoy it. I looked into it further because the art was quite eye-catching. Reminds me of Paint by numbers. It IS quite tedious. The pen has two sides. One side picks up one at a time, the other side up to 4 so it can go faster. There is definitely a technique involved. Some people also make it high tech with apps.
I think it could be considered more a hobby. Being able to have custom orders would make these a great, albeit time-consuming, gift.
I opted to not try it as I think my fingers & wrist would clam up holding the pen for long periods.

I finished one and bought two more. I can only work on it about 15-20 minutes at a time as I get ....bored? with the repetitiveness. Which is a bit odd but then I get bored with repetitiveness in making lots of the same little coils for the quilling too. I do like the results though.

Which diamond art have you done ? Can you share a picture ?
Would it be a good Xmas present idea ?

I think it would be great!! Assuming you have the time and a picture you think they would like. You can see I haven't framed it yet, but I bought a gray frame and I think I'll put a piece of black paper behind it.
