It's a good thing you've completed your diamond art project! Now, it's time to show the world your masterpiece, or at least show it off to your family or friends. However, you may be wondering what to do with your finished work. So we've got you covered, there are many uses for your artwork. The following suggestions are for reference.
One of the best ways to immortalize your one-of-a-kind piece of art is to frame it and make it a part of your home decor so you can appreciate it every day.
Mounting a diamond painting is a relatively simple process. Be sure to remove any dirt that may be adhering to the beads before adding the painting to the new frame. When buying a frame, measure the painting before buying and pay attention to the edges of the diamond painting for extra decoration. You can choose to cut this area out and find a slightly smaller frame, or leave it there for added visual impact. There are several wooden frames to choose from in everydayedeals.
As a gift
However, if you like to finish diamond paintings and don't have enough space to display them in your home, you need to find something to do with them. A good option is to give them as gifts to friends and loved ones. Choose a design that matches the recipient's interests and create a one-of-a-kind gift that they can't get from anyone else.
Donating your completed diamond artwork is another great option. Consider donating your work to a local orphanage, senior center or nursing home. Chances are, they'll be delighted to have one of your glittering masterpieces on the wall. You can even donate your finished artwork to charity auctions and fundraisers to raise money for the cause you have in mind.
While the demand for polished diamond art is not as high as the demand for original art, there is still a market. A delicate drawing of diamonds with straight lines and no blemishes or missing beads is likely to be loved by many buyers - as long as you know where to look for them. This type of art tends to sell well at local craft fairs, where potential buyers can see them in person.
Maybe you're not ready to hang your diamond painting. Maybe you need to find a safe place for it, you're moving into a new home soon, or you're planning to give it as a gift. At the same time, you need to be able to store it safely without breaking the integrity and accidentally knocking off the beads. Foam board is an easy, inexpensive way to keep your painting safe after you're done. You can use two flat foam boards of the same size (should be larger than the size of the canvas). Place the diamond drawing on one foam board, then the other board on top and use tape to secure the two pieces together.
