I bought this for my 12 year old granddaughter. She adores this! I read a review that one picture wasn’t very clear after being finished so I bought this one instead. My granddaughter is very artistic. She’s not into playing ball or sports, so this is her pastime. It has very small pieces, so she needs a devoted place just for this as it’s difficult to move these pieces from one place to another. You can’t do this in a car or a moving vehicle as the pieces will slide around. You use a pencil type holder to put the diamonds in place. There is no liquid paint or water involved. You just press on a diamond type of plastic and voila! a pretty picture. I would have loved this at her age as I did paint by number back in the day. It has a color code on the side using numbers and the alphabet. The same code is also on the picture, but it is small! The top directions say this is a manual drilling method. It’s not painting though. The white backside is a type of canvas that is sturdy, but not stiff.
I wish it had square gems so there weren't so many gaps. You can see the sticky pad and letters in between the gems. It is very pretty and I enjoyed doing it.
I like it I have girls so they my princesses.
Daughter wanted a project to work on to keep her busy, found it relaxing
