"When I started this, I had no idea it would be so much fun! And the finished painting looks amazing. Fast delivery too, I could start the next day!"
"This painting is really beautiful in color. There is more than enough paint and it is a good quality. I'll be sure to order a new painting soon!"
"I received my order the next day and I immediately started working on it. The reinforcement behind the entire canvas ensures that it does not get saggy when you are working on it, or that you push through the canvas with your drill pen."

What is Paint by numbers?
Paint by numbers is, as the name implies, painting by number. All different areas are printed with a number on the canvas. The number on the canvas corresponds to a number on a container of paint. The numbers can usually be found in more than one area, so make sure you find all the areas of the same number. Make sure that you do not use too much paint with your brush at once, the supplied paint is very easy to spread and has a wider range than you might think. Also don't worry if you go outside the lines. You can correct this with the paint of the adjacent area.
What is Diamond painting?
Diamond painting is the application of colored stones on a pre-printed and numbered design on canvas. A layer of glue has been applied to the cloth to which the stones will stick. To ensure that not everything sticks to the cloth, a protective sheet is placed over it. By removing a piece of the sheet, new stones can be stuck to the canvas, without the adhesive layer losing its strength. So never pull the whole protective sheet off the cloth at once! Every number or letter on the canvas corresponds to a bag of stones with the same number or letter. With the help of the special pens you can place the stones on the canvas. You pin the tip of the pen in the supplied block of wax, which ensures that you can pick up the stones with the pen, and thus place the stone precise and with the correct number or letter.
