Answers to Commonly Asked Questions
WHAT IS DIAMOND PAINTING?
Diamond Painting is a craft from which is a cross between Cross Stitch and Paint By Numbers. The recognisable difference is the Diamond Paintings use "diamonds" also known as Drills. Each diamond is 2.5mm x 2.5mm and is colour matched to the design printed onto the sticky canvas which also has a chart on to help match the symbols to the numbers. Each adhesive covered canvas is a high definition design that has been broken down into small symbols on which you place the diamonds onto the correct corresponding symbol to create your sparkling masterpiece.
WHAT ARE DRILLS?
Drills is another word for the acrylic Diamonds. The size of the individual diamonds/drills are 2.5x2.5mm and are either shaped square or round.
Square Drills: These drills line up more easily for that full mosaic effect.
Round Drills: These drills will create gaps around the Diamonds but will still give you a brilliant finish.
WHAT DO THE TERMS "PART DRILL" & "FULL DRILL" MEAN?
Part Drill: This refers to a partial Diamond Painting, when not all of the canvas design is covered with Diamonds/Drills, but only select features of the design.
Full Drill: This refers to when the whole canvas design is covered with Diamonds/Drills.
