This creative art is using the idea similar to “paint by numbers”. The difference is that you are using the acrylic (in our sets) square drills size about 2.5 mm. We choose square shape since compare to round ones they give more complete image and color. Our diamond paintings come in size of 40 cm x 60 cm (or about 15.8″ x 23.6″). After I have finished my diamond painting of “Philipsburg” I share here different tips and technique that I learned from the project. It took me a month to complete this beautiful painting… You will need to allocate the clear, flat surface that you will be using for the period of time to assemble your diamond painting – it should be big enough to have room for tools and supplies. Coffee table or some kind board that you place in the quiet area that does not need to be moved and will not disrupt the daily activities. Open the box and put the contents on the table. You will find: rolled in canvas – it has sticky surface covered by plastic film; a bag with diamond drills sorted by type and numbered; two strips of glue (pink); two hand tools and two trays. There is also a list with numbers / types of the drills as they apply to your project. If you find that your canvas has too many creases – put a few books over for the night or let it sit on the table for a day in the warm place – the canvas will get flat.
