Joep πŸ’– Diamond Painting 3D


#madebyme #diamondpainting #hobby

On December 29, 2020 I told a blog (opened in new screen) that I would start a new hobby project. I wanted to recreate my dog Joep with a paper mache dog, which I was going to cover with diamond painting stones.

Something I had not done before, because to date I made only ordinary diamond paintings (opens in new screen).

On January 16, 2021 I finally started and had all the materials I needed for it.. Especially a lot of white stones πŸ˜‰ On February 17, 2021 he was finally ready, so I worked on it for exactly a month. Sometimes in the evenings, but more often on weekends.

In total I used about 19,000 stones, this I counted n.a.v. the number of bags I ordered for this.

As you are used to from me, below I will show you how I started and how he eventually became. I am completely in love with it and I am so happy that I have decided to imitate my dear Joepie in this way and thus always keep as a memory. Joepie is now almost 12 years old, so not super young anymore. A Jack Russell can get old, so I expect to be able to enjoy him for another four years and maybe even longer.

This is Joep and I used this picture as an example in inspiration to imitate it.

In this picture he is 3 years old, so another nice young Joepie πŸ˜‰

In the meantime, he is a little grayer, but not very. He is still very busy sometimes, but also takes more and more his rest moments and hours of walking he doesn't always like that anymore.

He is fundamentally healthy, has never been wrong and I hope it stays that way of course!

That's how I bought Joep when he was still bald and only made of paper mΓ’chΓ©. I ordered it at @Urban Craft Factory (nonsponsored)

With chalk paint I painted it all white. There will always be something to shine through between the stones and since it is mainly white, this is the most beautiful.

When the paint was dry, I drew with pencil the lines on his head n.a.v. the picture above. Furthermore, Joep is completely white, only his head has colors.

These are the colors I used. Natural white, black and 3 colors brown. In the 1st bowl there is a light color and in the 2nd tray there are 2 colors brown mixed together to make it a bit melee. I used round rhinestones, because with square you can not make curves.

The glue I used, I bought n.a.v. a tip from Miranda of @Urban Craft Factory (nonsponsored). This glue remains sticky after you have applied it. This allows you to simply paste the stones without ever lubricating new glue. I did this every part I wanted to make.

Here you can see the first result. The right side of his head is ready and he's already starting to be totally cute 😍

In this picture you can see that his head is ready, but at that moment his bodice is still uncovered.

Of course he also got a collar on and I used leftovers from the Christmas cards I made. Red with silver stones in the middle row.

This is the last picture I took before it was finished.. Here you can see that his body is quite finished and I'm working on the paws.

AND THEN HE WAS DONE 😍
