Diamond Painting contains neither diamonds nor is it painting. It is fixing tiny colored acrylic bits on sticky canvas. I call it "substitute crafters cross stitch" or "acrylic stick by color code".
I saw these a few years back as I wandered the aisle's of Michaels. It was Christmas time and I wished to make one, but the price deterred me from making the purchase. A week later an office colleague whined that she and her sister got two and after 5-secs she found it distastefully tedious.
Wow! Here is the Universe granting me my wish to try my hand at it! I offered to complete it for her and convinced her that she was doing me a favor!
The very first one - Rose in crystal glass bell - a very Phantom of the Opera feel to it.
