Pop-up shop open from 10am – 3pm at our warehouse in Durban North.

Step 1

Remove the supplies from the box and check that you have the following:

An applicator pen, wax, bead tray, packets of beads and the print. If one of these items is missing then please contact orders@diamonddotpainting.co.za.

Step 2

Double-check that you have all the packets with the colours in them to complete your design. Each packet is labelled with the packet number. Line them up to make it easier to count. Compare the packets to the colour legend.

Step 3

Identify an area you would like to begin with. Locate the packet number associated with that symbol. Pour some of the beads into the bead tray. Do not fill the tray.

Step 4

Using the applicator pen, poke the end of the pen into the wax. This will help the bead stick to the pen to be placed on the canvas.

Step 5

Pick up individual beads using the applicator pen, making sure the faceted side is facing upwards and the flat side at the bottom.

Step 6

Pull back the plastic cover away from the area you want to dot. Do not remove the whole plastic film from off the canvas. Press the diamond dot firmly into place above the correct symbol, covering the symbol area.

Step 7

Once you have completed your design, use heavy books or a rolling pin to press the diamond dots down securely. This should prevent them from popping off. 

Step 8

Should you wish to pack your completed design away, or transport it to another location, roll your diamond dot painting up so that the beads are on the outside.

    1. Hi Tanya,
      The courier services are only delivering essentials such as food and medical supplies. If you place an order then you will need to wait until the limitations have been lifted by the government. All orders will be dispatched the moment lockdown has been lifted and courier services are back in action.

  1. Are you doing deliveries during level 4? If so, would it be posted up to Johannesburg to my nearest post office?

    1. We are unable to deliver your orders during Level 4 of Lockdown. You are, however, still able to purchase online or order a custom. Once the limitations have been lifted and courier companies can deliver non-essentials then we can dispatch all orders placed immediately. As to delivering packages to your local post office or PostNet, we cannot be reliable for it going missing or being damaged during transit. We recommend using a courier service instead.

    1. You should be able to do quite a bit with a single poke! One client was able to complete a 40 x 50cm design by only poking her wax about 5 0r 6 times. But everyone is different.

    What happen to the plastic film when the work is completed? Do you cover your work up?

    1. Good Day Alida

      Once the Dot is completed you do not need to put the plastic film back on.
      You can use any sort of sealant from a decor store if you’d like .
