7 things I wish I knew before Diamond Painting

What is the best way to start a Diamond Painting? If you are a beginner of diamond painting, you must want to know some useful tips before start them!


Step 1: Plastic bags

If you've ever glued a symbol chart to a canvas, you know how difficult it can be to get rid of it. There is a simple trick to avoid this. Simply place the symbol chart in a plastic bag. Plastic doesn't stick like paper, so if the plastic bag happens to get stuck in the glue, you can easily pull it off.


  1. Clean the drill

Sometimes the wax sticks to the drill bit when you place them on the canvas. To get the drill clean again, there are two things that work well. Use a damp cloth or wipes to wipe the glasses. Gently pull the cloth or rag over the drill. Be careful and make sure they don't leave any liquid behind.


  1. Flatten the canvas

To make the canvas flat, place it on a flat surface with books on it. You can also hang it on a trouser frame to make it flat. Some even put the canvas under the mattress to smooth it out.


  1. Use a cutting board for concise results!

In case, you do not have a small study table to place your canvas in a downright straight position, you can make the most of your kitchen appliances here. A cutting board is good enough to accommodate your canvas and would leave you enough space to keep the result of the essentials close by too.


  1. Adequate Lighting

Working continuously with tiny diamonds can put a strain on your eyes. That's why choose a place where there is adequate lighting.


  1. Comfortable Chair

People choose to do diamond painting to relieve their stress. However, it can badly backfire if you sit continuously with the wrong posture. Always choose a chair that can provide comfort along with supporting your posture.


  1. seal it and frame it

Diamond beads often fall off the canvas over time. The only way to prevent this is to use a sealant. Sealant can also harden your painting, giving it some structure. This makes it easier to mount somewhere and store it without damaging the painting. After sealing is complete, framing must be the last step in making your artwork a true masterpiece. I know it might be a bit of a struggle for those of you who are owning your diamond frame for the first time. But don’t worry, here is a comprehensive and detailed guide for you. Follow every step and you’ll have a shiny picture frame.


Diamond painting, also known as DIY diamond painting, is a combination of exquisite and shining artificial crystal flat-bottomed round diamonds (some square diamonds) and well-designed patterns organically combined by diamond painting designers. The drill is glued to the corresponding symbol on the canvas, so that the pasting of a diamond is completed, and then slowly fill in the area corresponding to each symbol.
