What is Diamond Painting
Diamond Painting is a new craft hobby that's a mix between Cross Stitch and Paint By Numbers.
Created in 2015, Diamond Painting was designed as an easier, faster, and more therapeutic alternative to Cross Stitch.
With Diamond Painting, you apply tiny resin "diamonds" to a DMC-coded adhesive canvas to create vibrant mosaic paintings.
What's The Difference Between Round
And Square Drill?
In Diamond Painting, you will often come across the terms
"Square Drill" and "Round Drill." In Diamond Painting, a "drill" is simply another word for "diamond." When we say Round vs. Square Drill, we're referring to the physical shape of the diamonds.
*Creates A Fuller, More Complete Looking Painting.
*Square drill diamonds look a bit "cleaner" than round drill diamonds. *They line up more easily and create a "fuller" mosaic look when enjoyed from a distance.
*Square Diamonds Satisfyingly "Snap" Into Place.
*Sometimes it's the little things that matter! When you start making progress on a painting and begin filling in gaps, you get a satisfying "snap" and a sense of achievement, as dorky as that sounds!
*Easier (And Faster!) To Pick Up And Apply Diamonds.
*Round diamonds just seem to stick to the diamond pen better, making the transition seem more seamless.
*Finished Painting Feels Less "Complete."
*Given the round shape of the diamonds, gaps between diamonds may appear more apparent when you're close up with the painting.
