About Sizes And Drills For 5D Diamond Paintings

About Sizes And Drills 

If your new to 5D Diamond Painting here's some information about the different drills and sizes available. 


Drills are the tiny gems that make up the 5D diamond painting. There are two kinds, round drills and square drills.




Round drills have a more scattered, glimmery look to them but since they are round some of the printed picture underneath might show through a little as you can see from the image above. These types of drills are great for beginners, since there is a bit of room when placing them on to the canvas!




Square drills require a bit more skill as you line them up perfectly into rows, and almost no print from the background shows through. Precise lines are necessary to get the proper effect. The finished product is incredibly, and resembles a beautiful mosaic.



Tiny! Roughly the square beads are 0.25 cm and round beads are 0.28 cm.



They’re made from a high-sheen resin, which is highly pigmented, and coloured all the way through for depth.
