You can look at diamond painting as a new form of Paint by Numbers, but without paint. By following a predefined pattern, “diamonds” in various colours are placed on a self-adhesive canvas. Every colour is connected to a symbol, these symbols can be seen on the canvas as well and indicate where a colour should be placed. A special pen is used to pick up diamonds and place them on the canvas. Doing this requires some attention and patience. Although the procedure is rather easy and simple, diamond painting is all about the detail and neatness. The more precise you are, the better the end-result. 

Because of the attention to detail diamond painting requires, you often work with deep focus. Our brain doesn’t have to think about anything else.

Because of the beautiful results, it is easy to manage the necessary perseverance and focus. 

Placing the diamonds on the canvas can sometimes almost feel addicting, because with each diamond placed the end-result becomes more visible.
