What is Diamond Painting?

Diamond painting is an upgrade to cross-stitch or we can say that this is a perfect blend of cross-stitch and Paint by Numbers. In diamond painting we use diamond like beads as paint and diamond applicator pens as brushes, so we call it diamond painting.

We paste all the gemstone beads or can say Diamond Dotz on the canvas using the pen tool. People also call it gemstone painting, diamond embroidery, Diamond Dotz Art, Diamond Art Club and diamond cross-stitch.

You can check how a normal photo will look like after diamond painting on this page below.

Square diamond kits are full drill (whole canvas is filled with diamonds) but less shiny. But Round diamond kits are partial drill and don’t cover the whole canvas but more shiny.

Our customers prefers Square drill over Round drill kits.


Difference between 5D and 3D diamonds

It is all about the facets on the diamonds. If a gemstone have five facets it is called 5D diamond and if it have three facets it is called 3D diamonds.

Once you received the product please open it carefully. You will get a printed canvas with your amazing picture made with some small boxes.

Those boxes are colored and labeled with a number or some icons. The size of the box and diamond are the same.

Each number or icon that is printed on the canvas corresponds to the gemstone color. There is a chart given on the side of the canvas which shows all the relation between diamond and the colored box.

The below picture explains this step.Each diamond packing has some unique number slip on it.

Now in this example, we selected Red-colored packing which has code 4-327-460 on it.

- 105 is the quantity of the diamonds used in painting

It means we need to fill these diamonds on the box with corresponds number 4.

Our customers shared some cool techniques with us. So we are sharing those with you.

Chackerboard technique

Checkerboard Technique

You must be heard about checkerboard. In this method we simply do an alternative of black and white squares. If we have a larger area of same color, we can use this method by simply placing the diamonds on the alternate boxes.

In this method we do the toughest part in starting and easiest part at last. To use this method simply start with the color that have smallest quantity. At the end finish with the color that you have the most.

This way is also very satisfying because when you complete the hard part of something at start everything rest will be easier.

one color at a time

One color at a time Technique

As the name suggests, simply fill one color at a time. There is a downside of this method and that is exposed area might get less sticky over time.

But this is a very easy method and you should also try this.


Fill with the Strips Technique

Our canvas have pre cutter strips on the cover. Most of the painters follow this pattern. In this method we remove the strips one by one and apply the diamonds. Once one strip is completed we can start with pulling out the another strip.

This is one of the easiest method. We highly recommend you to use this method because by using this method your canvas will not loose its stickiness.

farming method

The farm plot method

You may know the way how a farmer work on his field. Farmer always divide his field in large blocks. We also going to use this technique.

Make some large blocks so you can put three to five diamonds at a time. This method also works well when you have a large area of same color. You can also try this for other colors as well.

How to remove crease from diamond dotz canvas?
