I recently bought one of these as well. But I’m trying to figure out a technique to go by.

Do you start at the bottom and work ur way up? Or how do you do it that works best?

I usually start from the bottom left corner and work to the right for a section and then I move up. Although sometimes if there is a big section of one colour in an area I kinda get bored of the same colour so I try do another section and come back to it.

I’m so glad some of us are trying this out :slightly_smiling_face:

Ohh ok thanks for the tip!

Yeah I thought it looked so cool to do. Urs looks like it’s coming along well.

I’m scared I’m going to spill a thing of diamonds/beads all over the floor…and I’m also realizing it’s kind of a challenge for someone with shaky hands :laughing:

I bought some small bead containers it does help keep everything organised before you start a project. :slightly_smiling_face: And helps prevent beads everywhere

That’s actually a very good idea, I may have to look into that!

@TheStrange, there’s no real right or wrong way to work on a DP. I’ve tried starting in all different places now. I find for bigger ones its best to start from the top left and work down (I’m right handed). If there is glue around the outside of the painting you can put normal sticky tape over it (this will keep it clean), and also tape it to the table so it doesn’t slip down.

@ish, did you finish the first one you were working on? I like your puppy :slight_smile:

PS - if you drop them onto the floor a stocking over your vacuum cleaner is meant to do the trick.

Thanks for the info @gazza75

:upside_down_face:

And that’s really smart about the vacuum trick.

@TheStrange, your welcome… hoping you don’t have to test out your vacuum any time soon. What is your painting of?

Thanks!! It’s hard to say how big the picture is but it’s pretty big

Yeah I saw some of them and they looked amazing! I’ll probably post a picture of mine when I’m done.

Edit: I just looked and it’s 12X16
