Diamond painting #25: Action Diamond painting 30×40 cm Avec, early 2024
Action will continue in the new year with new Diamond painting sets. This time they have a new variant of the 30×40 cm diamond paintings. In this article I will tell you all about it and how I made all one diamond painting.
Action Diamond painting 30×40 cm (AVEC brand)
At Action they now sell 4 different diamond paintings for € 3.89 each. Some sets have special stones:
- Lion, AB stones. I didn't know what this was at first, but they are some kind of mother of pearl/holographic stones.
- Dog, metallic stones.
- Flowers, with stones with a special shape.
- Flamingos, regular round stones.
- Sheet with photo with pattern and adhesive layer
- Stones (including the special stones)
- Sorting bin
- Wax (to easily pick up the stones with the pen)
How does diamond painting work?
Have you never made a diamond painting? Let me briefly explain what it is. Diamond painting is actually very easy and relaxing to do. In short: stick different colored stones in the right place on a pattern. By sticking the different stones, you create a diamond painting especially for Christmas.
First, place the pattern with adhesive layer in front of you. There is a plastic protective layer on the image and you carefully peel it off. You can choose where you start removing the protective layer. I ONLY remove the protective layer where I want to stick the stones, so you can protect the adhesive layer on the other parts for a while. And nothing is more annoying with Diamond painting than sticking your hand on the adhesive layer 😉 or the adhesive layer no longer sticking on some parts because it has dust on it. I prefer to work in squares with diamond paintings of this size. So first finish one square completely before I start on another part
The pattern contains letters, characters and numbers. These letters, signs and numbers correspond to the bags with the different colored stones. Place a few stones of one color in the green sorting tray. Use the pen with pink wax on the tip to pick up a stone from the sorting tray. Stick this stone where the number of the bag is on the pattern. Keep the stones well sorted. When I'm done with one color, I neatly put the stones back in the correct bag. You keep repeating this.
Get started with diamond painting Action in early 2024
I liked the lion and the flamingos the most, but which one am I going to make first... It was the flamingos because the diamond painting is so beautifully colorful. I like that! As I have come to expect from Action, making this diamond painting went really well. It was a lot of work, but this diamond painting is also finished :-).
Will you also get started with diamond painting again in 2024? Or do you have another hobby that you want to take up?
I received the Diamond painting cards in this article.
