Ramya Hariharan
This week on Artistic Expressions, Christina Huang sits down with Ramya Hariharan as she talks about her interest in making diamond paintings.

Name: Ramya Hariharan

Grade: 10th

Years of experience: Two years

Wingspan: How and when did you first start diamond paintings?

Hariharan: “I started diamond painting two years ago when my aunt gifted me a diamond painting.”

Wingspan: Can you explain the process you go through with each painting?

Hariharan: “First things first, I set up the painting by sorting out all the gems and taping up the painting into sections so that I can ensure that it’s all efficiently done.”

Wingspan: Who is your inspiration?

Hariharan: “My inspiration is myself because I wanted to show myself that I’m capable of trying out new projects and self-teaching.”

Wingspan: Was it difficult to learn, and in what ways was it so?

Hariharan: “It’s not difficult to learn, but it’s quite difficult to keep up the process because it takes a very long time and also since the gems are really small, you have to be very precise with how you place them onto the painting.”

Wingspan: Do you have one that you’re particularly proud of?

Hariharan: “The one I’m most proud of is a SpongeBob one because the gems were aligned neatly, and the picture came out very vibrant.”

Wingspan: What has been your favorite painting to date?

Hariharan: “My favorite painting so far is a cow that has a flower headband and I think it’s really cute and [says] ‘summer.’”

Wingspan: What do you love most about it?

Hariharan: “I love diamond painting because when I’m done with it, I get to frame and decorate my room with it, and the end result looks really pretty so I can gift it to other people.”

Wingspan: Do you have any advice for others that might want to start?

Hariharan: “I recommend finding ways to stay organized and keeping all of your supplies in one place. I would also recommend sticking to one project in order to avoid starting multiple projects because when you do that, you really can never finish a project and you always end up starting new things and you end up wasting a lot of material in the process.”
