What is Diamond Painting?
Diamond painting is an easy and enjoyable activity for crafters young and old. Based on the same concept as mosaics and paint-by-numbers, diamond painting uses tiny “diamond”-like facets to create colorful designs and patterns for finished designs that sparkle. Applying the diamonds is a simple three-step process that is meditative and relaxing, providing hours of enjoyment as you re-create your design.
1) It Reduces Stress and Anxiety.
It's a busy go go world...family, work, (or lack of work), school, it can be overwhelming, putting ridiculous demands on our lives and well being. Diamond painting allows us to sit back and just breathe. We can do it alone or with a small group and feel the stress disappear.
Just like meditation, diamond painting also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate free-floating anxiety. It can be particularly effective for people who aren't comfortable with more creatively expressive forms of art. People who are more guarded find a lot of tranquility in diamond painting. It feels safer and it creates containment around their process.
