“Evermotion Mechanical Painting” is the latest Genshin Impact event that requires you to solve a quick puzzle to get a handful of Primogems. Our Genshin Impact “Evermotion Mechanical Painting” event guide lists out the solutions for each puzzle.

The basis is simple: you need to place gears in the pegs so the blue gear (which will be spinning) will power up the painting so that the green gear spins. The quest to start the event is in Mondstadt, marked by a gear on your map.

Below, we provide the solutions for the gear puzzles that we used.
