One of the hardest things to do for someone else, is buy them a gift. We want to see their eyes light up as they unwrap what you have given them and exclaim “YES! This is perfect!” But often, we end up choosing a trinket that will soon be forgotten on a shelf or in a drawer.
But there is a new product on the market that can illicit the exact emotion you are looking for, and it is designed to turn a memory into a craft, and the finished product into a piece of art that will stand the test of time…custom photo diamond painting!
Firstly, if you haven’t heard of diamond painting, it is a brand-new arts & craft that involves the placing of tiny pieces of resin called DIAMONDS onto a colour-coded canvas. Kind of like an updated version of paint by numbers. The “diamonds” are placed using a wax-tipped stylus based on a legend that dictates where each color diamond should be placed. In this case, the “painting” will be a photo that you choose!
Custom photo diamond painting companies allow you to send them any photo you choose, and they will digitally recreate the photo onto the diamond painting canvas. So, you are turning a special memory into a fun and relaxing activity for anyone who participates. This makes a perfect gift to memorialise a special photo memory such as a wedding, a newborn baby, a new house, whatever photo you choose!
The real beauty of custom photo diamond painting is that the whole family can participate in creating the work of art. Placing the diamonds is enough for just about any age to take part and the finish product is something that can be displayed for years to come. What was once just a 2d photo, now becomes a beautifully textured work of art!
If you are looking for a unique gift that won’t soon be forgotten, OR just looking to add new life to old photos, consider purchasing a custom photo diamond painting gift and you’ll create new life to old memories!
