Diamond Painting
What is diamond painting? Plus

Diamond painting is a craft hobby where you create sparkling, mosaic-like artworks using tiny resin "diamonds." Similar to cross-stitch, it involves following a color-coded chart, but instead of stitching with thread, you place colorful resin drills onto a sticky canvas. Each drill corresponds to a symbol on the chart, ensuring precise placement and a vibrant finished piece. The process is relaxing and meditative, combining the fun of paint-by-numbers with the intricate detail of cross-stitch. As you place each drill, your artwork comes to life with a beautiful, shimmering effect. Diamond painting is perfect for crafters of all skill levels, offering a sense of accomplishment and a stunning piece of art to display.

How do I choose the right size for my diamond painting? Plus

Choosing the right size depends on your experience level and the complexity of the design. Beginners may prefer smaller canvases (20x20 cm to 30x30 cm) to get comfortable with the process. Larger sizes (50x50 cm and above) are better for capturing detailed images and intricate designs. On our website, we provide renderings of each design in different sizes, making it easier to visualize and choose the best option for your project. This feature takes out the guesswork, helping you select a size that will produce the most visually appealing result for your chosen design.

What materials are included in a diamond painting kit? Plus

Our diamond painting kits include an artistic grade canvas printed in Australia, ensuring vibrant and durable designs. Each kit comes with a premium toolkit that includes a diamond applicator pen, wax, and four interchangeable tips (single placer, 3 placer, 5 placer, and straightener) for versatile application. Additionally, you’ll receive a 15ml touch-up bottle of PixelTak, the high-quality adhesive used in our kits, and a tray to organize and hold your diamonds. This comprehensive set ensures you have everything needed for a seamless and enjoyable diamond painting experience.

What is the difference between full drill and partial drill diamond paintings? Plus

Full drill diamond paintings cover the entire canvas with diamonds, resulting in a complete, sparkling image. Every part of the design is adorned with resin drills, creating a uniform and detailed mosaic-like finish. In contrast, partial drill diamond paintings have specific areas where diamonds are applied, with the background typically printed on the canvas. This allows for quicker completion and highlights particular elements of the design, creating a striking contrast between the embellished and non-embellished parts of the artwork. Both types offer unique aesthetics and can suit different preferences and time commitments.

What is the difference between round and square drills? Plus

Round drills are easier to handle and place, making them ideal for beginners. They create a slightly smoother, less precise finish with small gaps between the drills, which can add a softer look to the artwork. Square drills are smaller and fit together perfectly without gaps, resulting in a more polished, mosaic-like finish. This higher density of drills (pixels) in the same area allows for greater detail and sharper images. Square drills are preferred by experienced crafters for their precision and the satisfying "snap" they make when placed correctly. Both types offer unique visual effects and can be chosen based on personal preference and desired outcome.

How do I apply the drills to the canvas? Plus

To apply the drills, start by peeling back a small section of the protective film on the canvas to reveal the adhesive surface. Dip the tip of the applicator pen into the wax to pick up a small amount. Then, use the pen to pick up a diamond drill and place it onto the corresponding symbol on the canvas. Press gently to ensure it sticks. Work section by section to keep the adhesive clean and maintain the canvas's stickiness. Continue this process until your design is complete, taking care to place each drill accurately for the best results.

How do I fix mistakes or misplaced drills? Plus

If you make a mistake or place a drill in the wrong spot, gently lift it off using the edge of the applicator pen or a similar tool. For more stubborn drills, you can carefully nudge them out of place. Once removed, you can reapply the drill in the correct position. If the adhesive loses its stickiness after several adjustments, apply a small amount of PixelTak from the touch-up bottle included in your kit to restore the adhesive quality. Working carefully and slowly helps minimize mistakes and ensures a precise final image.

Can I roll up my diamond painting canvas while working on it? Plus

Yes, you can roll up your diamond painting canvas while working on it, but do so carefully to avoid damaging the drills or adhesive. Roll the canvas with the drills facing outwards to prevent them from being pressed or dislodged. It’s also helpful to cover the canvas with the protective film before rolling to keep it clean and sticky. Using a smooth, cylindrical object to roll around can help maintain an even shape and prevent creases. Always store the rolled canvas in a safe, dry place to avoid dust and dirt.

How do I store my diamond painting supplies? Plus

To store your diamond painting supplies, keep your drills organized in small containers or resealable bags labeled with their corresponding symbols or colors. Use the provided tray to hold the drills you’re currently working with. Store the canvas flat or rolled with the protective film in place to maintain the adhesive quality. Keep your applicator pen, wax, and other tools in a small container or pouch to prevent loss. Ensure all supplies are stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and moisture to preserve their quality.

How long does it take to complete a diamond painting? Plus

The time it takes to complete a diamond painting varies based on the size and complexity of the design, as well as the amount of time you can dedicate to the project each day. Smaller designs can be completed in a few hours or days, while larger, more detailed paintings may take several weeks or even months. On average, a moderate-sized painting (around 40x50 cm) might take an enthusiast around 20-30 hours to finish. The key is to enjoy the process, taking your time to place each drill accurately for the best results.clear answer

How do I clean and care for a finished diamond painting? Plus
  1. To clean a finished diamond painting, use a soft, dry brush or a lint roller to gently remove any dust or debris. Avoid using water or cleaning solutions, as they can damage the adhesive and the drills. Once cleaned, you can frame your painting to protect it from dust and damage. Store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading. Regularly check to ensure all drills remain securely in place, reapplying a small amount of PixelTak if needed. Proper care will keep your artwork vibrant and intact for years.
Can I frame my diamond painting, and if so, how? Plus

Yes, framing your diamond painting is an excellent way to display and protect your artwork. Start by cleaning the painting with a soft brush or lint roller to remove any dust. Choose a frame from our range specifically designed for diamond paintings to ensure a perfect fit. Carefully place the canvas into the frame, securing it in place without applying too much pressure to the drills. Framing not only enhances the beauty of your artwork but also protects it from dust, dirt, and damage, preserving its vibrancy and detail for years to come.

Are diamond painting kits suitable for children? Plus

Diamond painting kits are generally not suitable for young children due to the length of time required to complete them and the attention span needed, especially for full drill paintings that can have thousands of drills. Older children with more patience and fine motor skills may enjoy the activity, but supervision is recommended to prevent choking hazards from the small drills. It's best to choose simpler, smaller designs if introducing diamond painting to children to help them stay engaged and complete the project successfully.

How do I ensure the drills stay securely in place over time? Plus

After completing your painting, gently press down on the entire canvas with a rolling pin or a flat, smooth object to secure all drills. This helps ensure that every drill is firmly attached to the pre-coated PixelTak adhesive on the canvas. For additional protection, consider applying a clear sealant specifically designed for diamond paintings. This sealant will lock the drills in place and protect the artwork from dust and moisture. Additionally, framing your finished diamond painting will provide an extra layer of protection against external elements, keeping it looking vibrant and pristine. Store your framed artwork in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain its color and adhesive quality over time. Proper care and handling will ensure your diamond painting remains a beautiful, lasting piece of art.
