WHAT IS DIAMOND PAINTING?
Diamond paintings art is a form of mosaic art in which the artist applies shiny resins onto a pre-glued canvas to complete the painting. The final result of several hours of labor is a beautiful piece of art, that is all your own making.
It is very quickly becoming the rage right now. And it is no surprise why. Very much like adult colouring books and puzzles, diamond paintings art as a hobby has many mental, emotional and intellectual health benefits. Diamond paintings art is a stress free activity that relaxes the amygdala — the fear center of the brain — and allows your mind to get the rest it needs. But diamond paintings art has other indirect benefits, as well.
1. It Reduces Stress and Anxiety
2. Trains Your Brain To Focus
Diamond paintings art help to engage the brain in being able to develop and follow patterns, so there is a logic involved. It's a self-induced state of focusing.
The action of diamond paintings art involves both logic and creativity. We use logic when reading the pattern by picking a symbol and finding the colour associated with it from the chart. This activates the analytical part of the brain. On the other hand, when we lay the tiles onto the canvas to make the pattern, we activate the creative side of the brain. This helps incorporate both areas of the cerebral cortex which control vision and help with coordination and fine motor skills.
3. Helps Your Fine Motor Skills
4. Increases Your Social Circles
5. Helps to Spark Creativity
Diamond paintings art also stimulates the brains right hemisphere, which is associated with creativity. Everybody needs a creative outlet of some form as it is such a great form of stress relief. Diamond paintings art will enable you to create stunning pieces of art, without having an artistic bone in your body with the easy to follow patterns.
