Diamonds Are A Craft Enthusiast’s Best Friend
Diamond facet art, or more conventionally known as diamond painting, refers to the calming process of applying “diamonds”, which are made of small resin jewels, onto a pre-printed adhesive fabric. Beneficial for craft enthusiasts aged 5 years old and above, the diamond painting process will result in mosaic-style art that is sparkling and vibrant.
Designed for the best dotting experience, Diamond Dotz®’s facets abide by stringent specifications and are constructed using first grade raw materials to create premium quality 2.8mm epoxy resins. Diamond Dotz®’s facets are unique and are more effective in reflecting light through 13 different surfaces on each facet, creating a more spectacular finished result.
Additionally, Diamond Dotz® uses proprietary adhesive that is engineered by industry experts using high-tech formulas, ensuring facets do not fall off. The use of proprietary adhesive also makes dotting easier, especially on larger designs.
Diamond Dotz® is also officially licensed to distribute copyrighted products featuring notable worldwide franchises such as Harry Potter, DC, Marvel and Star Wars, for use around the world. Additionally, each Diamond Dotz® design is meticulously interpreted by local and international artists and photographers. The brand also produces custom diamond facet art designs for customers.
The Therapeutic Beauty Behind Diamond Facet Art
In addition to the sparkling outcome that can be utilised as beautiful decorative pieces, the benefits of diamond facet art is also best reaped as throughout the painting process. Diamond facet art enthusiasts enjoy it as a therapeutic hobby that promotes mindfulness and relaxation on top of a fantastic way to develop art skills.
“During the Covid-19 pandemic, the local arts and crafts scene was one of the sectors that bore the brunt of the economic decline. Over two years into the recovery, more people have begun realising the benefits and importance of arts and crafts towards one’s well-being, especially with more crafts days and festivals popping up. As an advocate of arts and crafts, we hope that the launch of this concept store will be able to attract more enthusiasts to benefit from this joyous pastime,” said Lisa Lee, Founder of Dotzmania.
According to experts, arts and crafts activities are proven to have favourable impacts on mental health, including improvements in empathy, self-esteem, resilience, and empowerment. Hence, as an engaging hobby, Diamond Dotz® is a fun way to improve mental health and encourage creative and self-expression to further allow craftlovers to disengage from daily concerns and focus on self discovery and reflection.
“As a newfound life purpose, my aim for Diamond Dotz® is to help more people to experience the feeling of affirmation when they see their artwork come to life. I have also collaborated with psychologists who employ diamond facet art in their sessions with their Parkinson’s patients, citing success in helping them with focus and clarity of thought, thus resulting in very productive sessions,” Lisa added.
