Diamond painting is one of the most enjoyable artistic hobbies that once started, is almost impossible to stop and put the pen down. While you master your art, whether it’s new-found or an existing passion, there’s some key tools you’ll need to ensure your process is as smooth as possible. This week, we’re diving into our own diamond painting tool box to show you the essentials for every diamond painter.
#1: Diamond Painting Applicator Pen
Diamond painting applicator pens are the most essential tool - without one it’s impossible to create your art. We include a diamond painting applicator pen in each kit, but if you’ve made diamond painting a frequent hobby, upgrading your applicator is a worthwhile option. Our Dual-Sided Diamond Painting Applicator Pen has all the features you need to keep your painting process fluid and simple. It’s wider than the applicator that comes with your kit, for an even more comfortable grip and hold, to keep you pressing your diamonds on with speed and ease. Our diamond painting applicator pen comes with a removable wax cone, eliminating the need to continuously dab your applicator in wax for a quick and fluid process. If you prefer the dabbing method, simply flip it over and continue to dip the end in wax. This dual-sided feature enables you to speedily apply your diamonds with the wax cone, while also allowing precision movements with the opposite side. Best of all, it’s lined with rhinestones for an eye-catching and dazzling look.
