You’ve picked out your Diamond Painting design. You’ve ordered your kit. It’s come in the mail! Now where to set up?
It can be difficult to create the perfect work station. Our crafters have tried everything, from non-stick mats, to portable stations, to in-home art studios. The key to success? Your comfort!
Whether you’re new to Diamond Painting or you’re an experienced artist, you may be looking for some inspiration for your workspace. Here are some of our favorite setups from the fine folks in the Paint With Diamonds Support Group.
8. This Legendary Light Pad
“I found the coolest idea for my painting. The bottom is open so I can put my light pad underneath and still have the flat surface for my canvas,” says Bobbie Jo Janquart, “It keeps my canvas off the warm light pad so my adhesive doesn’t get slippery. Plus the corners are open so the cord can stick out.” This is the future of crafting!
7. This Made for Work-Space
Oh, is it bring your Diamond Painting to work day? “I’ve been going thru withdrawals while at work so I made a portable station for at my desk on lunch break,” says Jennifer Shinn. The struggle is real!
6. This Multi-Tasking Masterpiece
Can’t choose between watching your show or working on your Diamond Painting? Why not do both! Kylie Randall hacked the system with her Diamond Painting station. Now she can work and watch 90 Day Fiancé at the same time. Genius!
5.These Adaptable Art Studios
“I have three work stations. One for my small which is also a traveling size…one for my medium size and one for my large size paintings. Anybody else have three or am I just wacko LOL,” laughs Laura Davies Kemka. You're right Laura, this set up is weird. Weirdly amazing!
4. This Heroic Hubby
“Hubby just made me my own diamond station,” shares Linda Fortin. Well, I'm sold. True love does exist!
3. This Before and After Bling Out
Lisa Marie Marshall-Martin woke up at 6am to transform her Diamond workspace into a stylish studio. Look at that lightbulb storage! Those snazzy shelves! That doggy Diamond Painting! Needless to say, we’re obsessed.
2. This Disaster-Proof Daydream
Cats and children beware - this work station can handle it all! Fannie Woods created her own tray platforms and placed them on non-stick mats. Never have an “Oh Sh*t” moment ever again!
