    I have been looking for the paintings for months, but they never come to us. Very sorry.
    I buy all my paintings on Aliexpress. You can get the most beautiful images for next to nothing! I've already made 5 and new ones are on the way. It's a bit different than drawing 🙂

    Nice message about diamond painting. I am also working on this myself.

    At AliExpress you can choose from so many fun and different things. You have square and round stones. I always ordered a diamond painting with square stones at first. Thought this was nicer, that it fits better than the round one. But I now have one with round stones and I must say that I don't like it too much. Those round stones are worth repeating. The stones from AliExpress are not translucent, but full of color.

    I find it a very enjoyable and relaxing activity.

    They also had the Xenos for a while, but I don't know if they still have the diamond paintings.

    Pipoos also has them, but they are a lot more expensive there. Nice prints too.

    Pay attention to the size when ordering a diamond painting. If the picture is very detailed, it will also look better if you order a larger size.

    If you want to find out if diamond painting is something for you, order a smaller size with fewer details. One with not too many colors.

    I want to buy every time, but then they run out

      I always do that too, and then I try to call the various action stores, but you can't call them. I called the head office where they are available, but they couldn't see that, so we should just go to all the stores, I was told......bad service

    I bought the butterfly.
    I have quite a bit of all the colours.
    For that money it is certainly not a bad buy.

    can you also order them by post from action?

  6. Ed Buysman says:

    Do everyone know that you have to pay import duties at Aliexpress if your product is over 22 euros?

  7. Rineke says:

    How much does Action cost, would you like to try it and see if it works?

    Not available in Middelburg

    Heey, making one yourself for your niece is also fun with the stone you have left and then just printing out a coloring page and using double-sided translucent tape and then letting you choose the colors yourself is also fun

    I've been to several promotions to get one for my 4-year-old niece, but I keep getting told no, we don't have that. I was even treated scandalously at Action Amstelveen because there were several people who had asked for it and the man was not feeling well from whining about those things. I prefer to make large paintings from Ali-express, but because the little girl loves it and wants to help, I wanted to buy one for her myself!

    • Els says:

      What a shame you weren't able to buy one. Hopefully they come back in soon. By the way, I also saw smaller versions on AliExpress?.

    Who knows, one day, but I already have so many hobbies, girl, how do you do this, I think every day again and again!


  12. I just read this because my neighbor is interested in it. I think the result is very nice! But it seems like a huge job to me.

  13. The end result is not exactly my thing, but I think it would be a lot of fun to work on. Just put your mind at 0 and just focus on that. I just have to think about the end result haha

  14. Florentine says:

    Very nice, especially for that price! Definitely fun to try out :-)

  15. A friend of mine does it too, it gives me the creeps myself. Something about no patience 😉

  16. DinjaDONUT says:

    Nice that you could try it for such a cheap price (which you can find at action...)! I think it looks quite nice, but I don't think it's something I can do myself, I don't have that much patience :p

  17. Ellen1979 says:

    How nice that you tried it too! I love doing it… a very nice technique indeed. I ordered some large ones on aliexpress. The choice there is huge. You can also have one made from your own photo.
    I bought one with round stones and one with square ones. I especially like the last one, which I spent a little more money on. Not too much bling, but colorful. With a larger one it is important to start at an edge. Otherwise you will really end up with your hand on the slab. Instead of tapping the container, I shake it a little. I just have no idea what I'm going to do with the end result yet 🙂

    • Els says:

      Thank you for your detailed response :-). I'll have a look on AliExpress, I'm a fan of Ali :-). Square stones really look nicer to me. Yes, doing something with the end result seems really difficult to me. I'm looking forward to a new project :-).

  18. A bit too much glitter for me and not my thing!
    But when the ladies here in the house are a bit older, they will definitely want to make something like this! hahahaha

    How nice that you tried this package and what a nice, honest review! I had never heard of diamond painting before, but it looks really nice. I just wouldn't have the patience for this myself, I'm afraid 😉

  20. I saw them at Action and immediately thought of all the loose stones that make our petty thief happy with three daughters. But you say it sticks well, so just throw out the loose adhesive sheets and let them shine like diamonds

  21. This looks nice! I have no experience with Diamond Painting myself, but they look a bit like the same stones as the ones I use for Hotfixing 🙂 Since this is a real hype at the moment, I will definitely share your article 😀

    • Els says:

      You're right, they do indeed look like stones that you use when hotfixing! No idea if they are the same. Thanks for sharing :-)!

    I am so happy with this article! I also saw that message on Facebook. You will also find many diamond painting items on Aliexpress. I don't really like the bling bling either, but I still think I, like you, would like to give this a try. In any case, you don't have to leave it for the price.
    I'm curious about your next diamond painting project!

I would really appreciate a response to this article :)
