Something about size you may need to know before you get start with diamond painting.
1.WHAT ARE DRILLS?
Drills are the tiny gems that make up a diamond painting. There are two kinds,round drills and square drills.
Round drills have a more scattered, glimmery look to them, and tend to be more abstract in their design, since the printed picture might show through a little. These are easiest for beginners, since there is a bit of room to not have straight lines!
Square drills require a lot of skill as they are lined up perfectly, and almost no printed background shows through. Precise lines are necessary to get the proper effect. However, the finished product is incredibly rewarding, and resembles a beautiful mosaic.
2.HOW BIG ARE THE DIAMONDS?
Tiny! Roughly the square beads are 0.25 cm and round beads are 0.28 cm.
3.WHAT ARE THE DRILLS MADE OUT OF?
They’re made from a high-sheen resin, which is highly pigmented, and colored all the way through for depth.
4.How to choose size?
We often hear that the bigger the better. When it comes to diamond paintings, this saying can not be too right.Diamond painting kits can range in size from tiny at 3”x3”, to 8”x10” to huge at over 30”!The smaller sizes mean cheaper, which would be great for newbies who just want to have a try on diamond painting,or it may be suitable for simple images with a few lines.When you try to do some gorgeous diamond paintings with images of portraits and intricate landscapes,small sizes can never be your wise choice.To simply put it, size is like resolution. With bigger size, you are able to put more diamonds onto the canvas and get way bigger details. The biggest sized paintings looks just like normal paintings!
As you see from the following pictures,the bigger the diamond painting canvas is,the more diamonds it requires,and the better the picture looks.
According to our years of experience, For none realistic representations of subjects, abstracts, or images with no defined faces or lines, a 40 x 30cm will be sufficient enough without sacrificing too much of the picture’s quality.A single subject with a face can work well enough with a 40 x 30cm, but note that if there are more faces in the image, a 60 x 50cm might be the bare minimum to get all the faces detailed enough in the finished project.In a word,you should choose the size according to the image content and what you expect on the image effect.
5.Difference between picture size and canvas size
The canvas is bigger than picture, and when diamond painting is full coverage, whole picture is pasting area. When you choose the diamond painting size, you should now that "bigger is better". Bigger the picture means better resolution and sharper details and finished diamond painting picture shines more. But for the beginners, the smaller size is better.

This was a Xmas pressie but daughter in. Law loved it something to calm after a busy day at her business and during lockdown .The colours are very good as is the design .
Really enjoyed doing this. This was my first diamond art and I was really impressed how they gave you extra diamonds.
It’s now framed and hanging in my living room and looks really lovely!
Already started my second one!
Love this picture, when seen on tv you know it's nearly xmas
Doing this one now love it
This is my second personalised photo and they will look great once they are finished. When I have finished this one, I've already got my third one to ready do go.
Absolutely fell in love with this picture - I’m so pleased I bought more than one type- having to stay at home the last few days gave me the opportunity to get started and loved every minute.
So addictive, I was still working on it till the early hours of the morning.
Drills are very small, so often used a magnifying glass sometimes.
Would definitely recommend as it is very calming and relaxing to do, especially when listening to books or music.
I bought this for my granddaughter she has already done one it looked beautiful, so ready to start her new one can’t wait to see it.
I have been looking at this picture for some time and am very glad that I decided to buy it at last. It is a beautiful picture and so relaxing to work because of all the lovely pastel shades, I’m almost sorry to finish it! However it was part of a Buy 2 get 1 free offer so I still have 2 more pictures to complete. Victoria’s Moon always gives excellent value, lovely pictures, quality tools and the order is sent out swiftly and very well packaged. Thank you very much.
Bought for my sister whom has done the round shaped ones before. These ones are a bit harder, but everything is provided and the pictures are superb detail. Plenty of time to fill with something interesting to do. Also you can do a bit and put it away with ease. No need to complete the whole thing under time pressures of glue etc.
Absolutely amazing. Picture is beautiful; defo worth the money. Comes with lots of spare diamonds and plenty of wax. Really enjoyable!
Purchased as a Christmas present. Recipient very happy, never done one before but quality looks good and whilst still some way to go, finding it very relaxing so far.
The best diamond painting I have done so far. It is only my 3rd attempt, but I have loved it, and I'm really pleased with the result.
The painting i ordered of my friends cats was very life like and looks amazing now its finished
Really pleased with all aspects of this purchase. Would highly recommend.
