Diamond Method and Techniques
After placing thousands of diamonds, you may want to switch things up. Our community has developed a number of different Diamond Painting Techniques and strategies that everyone can follow!
The Check'n the board Technique
Imagine the alternating black and white squares on a traditional checkerboard. Apply the same method to your Diamond Painting to mix things up a bit on areas with large amounts of the same color. The real upside comes when you fill in the gaps - SO satisfying when everything snaps into place.
"The Old Mate Card" Technique
Some of the more obsessive among us need our diamond lines to line up perfectly! Stacy Garon from the Paint With Diamonds Support Group recommends taking an old credit card and running it through the slots between the lines of drills so they all get pushed into place.
"Your way ON" Method
Leave the best for last. The "Your way ON" method involves starting with your smallest quantity color first, and then finishing up with the color you have the most of. Things should get easier as you go along, since you can place more of the same color at a time with your Diamond Pen Multihead.
"One by One" Method
This one doesn't require much explaining - just work your way across the canvas one color at a time!
OUR TIP: If any areas ever get less sticky due to air exposure, try dabbing the spot with a moist towel or baby wipe.
"The Blocks" Method
Dividing it up large blocks of the same color into little "plots". Keep each rectangle just wide enough that you can place 3 or 5 diamonds with the wide end of your Diamond Pen.
