Why you should stop buying diamonds
It’s the most expensive form of art, and it’s the one that gets people talking about art, whether they’re interested in buying it or not.
But for everyone else, it’s also the one most people are going to be spending their money on.
A new study from the New York Times suggests that even though it may be tempting to think of diamonds as art, they’re actually quite expensive to produce.
The report, titled “Why you should buy a diamond painting,” says the most commonly used diamond painting is actually made with one of three different materials: carbon steel, acrylic paint, and diamond.
And it’s not hard to see why: they’re all highly corrosive, and they can be hard to work with.
But that doesn’t mean that they can’t be used to paint.
The Times points to a recent study that suggests that, in terms of the amount of paint required to create a diamond, acrylic paints are more effective than carbon steel in terms the quality of the paint.
But the report also makes it clear that acrylic paints have their own issues.
The most expensive paint is acrylic, and the least expensive is diamond.
(This isn’t to say that diamond paints are inferior to carbon steel paint, just that it’s a more expensive material.)
So, while there are a lot of things to love about a diamond painted painting, you can probably see why you might be more inclined to spend your money on one.
