What are 5D Diamond Painting Kits?
Diamond painting is a mixture of cross stitch and paint by numbers, you might have heard it by the name "painting with diamonds". This relaxing arts and crafts activity allows you to make sparkling works of art using by small rhinestone diamonds, placing them systematically on a fabric canvas covered with a thin layer of adhesive. The end result is a bright piece of artwork that shimmers in the light. We personally love making 5D diamond painting kits that have lots of bright colors throughout them. If you're looking for a fun hobby that you can do at home to wind down after a long day or to do with your friends and family, you are in the right place.

How do you DIY 5D Diamond Paint?
If you want to learn How To Diamond Paint we have written a detailed blog article, which you can reference at any time. However, we are more than happy to go over the steps here as well. Following are step-by-step instructions to the diamond painting kit.
- First, remove all the items from our premium packaging.
- Second, be sure to look over the chart and legend contained in the upper-right corner of the canvas. Make sure you have all the required colors. If you anything is missing, just send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)and we will make sure you receive any missing parts or diamond painting accessories straight away.
- Next, arrange the canvas on a flat and clean surface. You can place it on one of our diamond painting LED light pads if you have poor vision, or want to work in dimly lit environments.
- Remove the protective sheet (re recommend not taking it all the way off, just peel it back a bit so you can cover your canvas in-between crafting sessions).
- Identify which color you want to work with first. We recommend starting with the colors on the edge of the canvas first, and work your way inward. That way you don't get your wrist stuck on the adhesive.
- For easy pickings, pour some of the diamonds into the grooved diamond painting tray. Now gently shake the tray, the grooves in the tray will flip the diamonds the right side up. This makes it very easy to use them.
- Pick up the diamonds by dipping the tip of your diamond painting pen in the provided wax.
- Press the tip of the applicator pen to the top (rounded) size of a diamond. When you lift the pen, you will see the diamond sticks to the wax and is ready for you to apply to our premium quality canvas.
- On its corresponding symbol, gently press the diamond to the canvas. Try to place the diamond in the lines. If you are out of line, don't stress, we provide you with a diamond painting tweezers so you can lift the diamond off the canvas and adjust the placement.
- Repeat steps 5-9 until your Diamond Craft painting kit is complete. The end result will shimmer and sparkle in the light.
What's the Difference Between Round and Square Diamond Painting Kits?
So, now you know what tools you can expect to use and the steps you need to take for DIY Diamond Painting, but now you've come to am important decision- will you choose square or round diamonds? Don't worry, we're here to make this easy for you. We'll now go over the pros and cons of both diamond shapes so you can choose what suits you best.
Square-shaped diamonds cover the entire canvas. There is very little to no space between each diamond so the final product looks full and complete. This is both a positive and a negative. It is a positive because it allows for the entire completed diamond art painting to shine in the light with no gaps. This can be a slight negative, especially for beginning diamond painters, because this requires the crafter to be precise with how they apply the diamond. In essence, it is slightly more challenging to work with square diamond drills.
Round diamonds are easier and faster to implement. There is slightly more space between each diamond compared to a painting with square drills. This gives the crafter a bit of leeway on how they place the diamonds. This can be great for someone who is a beginner, or someone who wants to do some crafting without having to be very focused. The end result is still beautiful. A painting with round diamond drills still shimmers and shines like one with square drills, but the texture looks slightly different. Some people say the end result looks similar to cross stitching because you can see the colored canvas surrounding the diamonds.
