Based on the same concept as mosaics or paint-by-numbers activities, diamond painting is a creative hobby that involves placing tiny colored "diamonds" on a printed image to create a mosaic painting.
Diamond painting provides a relaxing and meditative experience, as well as the satisfaction of creating a true work of art. Indeed, all kits offered on Oraloa are officially licensed with our various artists.
This kit allows you to create a canvas with bewitching colors. Give yourself a moment of relaxation with this simple and fun activity that frees the mind.
The diamond painting is an unfinished product, it is an activity to do yourself, with friends or family, by sticking small "diamonds" on a canvas, the final result will be just extraordinary.

Carolyn Steele / MGL
I grew up in England, and as a young girl I took private art classes in the countryside where I created detailed studies of wildlife in various media. My father, also an artist, inspired and encouraged me from the beginning. I began painting Caribbean pictures in 1992 as a way to extend the memories of my visits to the Caribbean.
I have a background in graphic design, which has helped me develop a sense of composition, an important element in all my paintings. In graphic design/lithography, I was limited in my use of color. Painting the tropics has allowed me to unleash my creativity. I like to work large. I rarely work under 18 x 24 inches, and most of my paintings are on 22 x 30 inch, 300 pound watercolor paper.
I am committed to nature education and conservation, so I donate a portion of my profits to wildlife and reef preservation projects. I hope that my work will decorate and enhance an appreciation for the incredible variety and fragility of the biosystems I paint. The majority of the species represented here are native to the Caribbean, and many of them are endangered.
