I do have a blog post in the works about diamond painting and my history with it. But since it’s Mario Day I’m gonna show you these adorable stickers.
For the uninitiated, Mario Day is March 10. Mar10. See. And the Mario in question is Mario the plumber from the Nintendo Super Mario games. I grew up with a NES and a SNES. When I think of video games I think of Mario.
I did a quick piece of art. A funky little mushroom dude.
But I also have these diamond painting stickers that I got from AliExpress a few months ago.
The set cost me a grand total of £3.41, and comes with all these different stickers.
The pattern and the glue peels off the backing paper nicely, and you can stick them wherever you like.
The kit also comes with some instructions, the usual tools, and all the diamonds you need.
And the patterns are just like normal diamond painting. A colourful grid with the squares coded.
I have no idea where I’m going to stick them, but I think I’m addicted. They’re really quick to do and satisfy that diamond painting urge without dedicating hours at a time.
I have a few (lots) more sets on my wishlist, and I may have ordered a set of monster ones.
