Think of it like painting by numbers, you have a canvas with a printed image with symbols printed on it and then overlaid with a self-adhesive glue.  You also in the same kit get bags of little plastic gems or diamonds each coded to match the colour of one of the symbols shown on the canvas.  You then spend time with a special pen picking and placing each coloured gem on its appropiate symbols until its covered.  If you're wondering the little white specs are actually reflections off the individual gems as the glitter in the light.  Basically a gem is a half sphere and the top of the sphere has anything up to 16 different facted edges on it to cause the sparkly hence the diamond reference.  It sounds like a pain, but in reality it only took a few hours for a couple of nights to finish Smile

Go check out my FB group "Diamond Painting UK" and you can see some of the spectacular painting designs you can get, some are far bigger and hence need far more gems to complete and of course time.  But its a very popular hobby in these days of pandemic lock downs as it gives people things to do when shut up indoors Smile

The group?  No, not at all why do you ask?  It is set as a private group so only our members get spammed with posts from it, but apart from that it's only a case of joining Smile

Those are pretty cool. Wouldn't it be neat if there was software that could take a photo and convert it into a template to do one of these?

As it happens there are a good number of companies out there that will take a photo of your choice and produce a custom painting from it.  People often use them to get one made of a shot of the family or similar.

One seller I know in China has a site Sunature that offers them at very competitive prices.
