If you have started making diamond paintings. In the process of making it, you will find that the process of making diamond paintings is simple, but reaching perfection is not simple. And, during the production process, we often encounter some big or small problems. There may be some problems that don’t really affect the production process, but they can make us feel uncomfortable. Next, I will present to you 3 DIY diamond paintings tips.
Smoothing Out The Creases In Your Canvas
Diamond embroideries are primarily sold in China, so the ones we order online are essentially from overseas. In order to save costs and facilitate shipping, retailers usually lift or fold the canvas and ship it with the diamond painting set in a long cardboard box. The long shipping time can cause creases in the canvas. The creases will affect the adhesion between the diamond and the canvas. So we should try to smooth out the creases in the canvas as much as possible. A common trick is to fold the canvas backwards according to the original crease, or to press the fully unfolded canvas with a heavy object. This is done by placing the canvas under the mattress or pressing it with a book. If you don’t want to spend extra time smoothing out the creases in the canvas, you can paste the diamond first. Then, you can simply lightly go over them with an X-Acto knife to release any air trapped between the canvas and its adhesive layer.
Restore Canvas Adhesion And Remove Stains
In its initial state, the canvas will be covered with a piece of plastic film or parchment paper, the main purpose of which is to keep the canvas clean and sticky. Do not lift this film all at once during the process of attaching the diamond cross-stitch. Instead, lift only the current location where the diamond is to be pasted. If your canvas lacks adhesion or becomes dirty, all you need to do is wipe those areas with a baby wipe.
Speed Up The Process Of Gluing Diamonds
Newcomers to diamond dotz usually paste one diamond after another. And after pasting one color, you can change to the next one. This method is very practical and the steps are not messy. It is okay to use this method for small size diamond painting. However, if you continue to use this method for large size DIY diamond paintings, it will take a long time to create. Here are 3 tips to speed up the process of diamond art.
1. Use A Pen With A Wide Tip
This pen isn’t included in every diamond painting set, but it’s very useful. That’s why I recommend everyone to get a pen with a wide tip. If an area is only going to have one color of diamond pasted on it, then this pen is the best to use. Attach double sided tape to the wide end of the pen and use it to dip the tray into the diamonds. But only if the diamonds are lined up on the tray ahead of time. This pen can dip 4 diamonds at a time, which will increase the speed of diamond application by 4 times.
Using the “checkerboard method” is also a good idea for large areas of the same color. Start by placing a diamond in each of the horizontal and vertical rows in the squares separating them. Then just fill them in. Filling diamonds is very fast, but the first step in arranging the board is to be careful and place each diamond in the correct position.
This is the third method of speeding up the drilling of large areas. The “farm method” means that a square or rectangular farm is first pasted with diamonds. Then use a pen with a wide tip to fill the farm.
We actually run into a lot of problems in the process of making DIY diamond paintings. The truth is that it’s not as easy as you might think to just paste the diamonds onto the canvas. If you want to make a beautiful diamond painting that sells well, then please take every DIY step seriously. When you finish a diamond painting, you will not only see your own handiwork, but you will also be able to experience the philosophy of life.
