Quick Tip – many diamonds might appear to have the exact same colour, when in actual fact they differ – it may be only very slightly, but these are generally really important to provide shadow and light changes on your artwork. Because of this reason, always follow the diamond bags coding that is provided to make sure the end result is accurate and by design.
Quick Tip – be sure to label your dividing containers, or egg carton with the same code as was on the original plastic bag the diamonds came in. This is to make sure you know where each colour is to go.
Make sure you have everything on hand before you start, so you don’t have to interrupt your workflow later on to fetch something.

Once you’ve added the last beads to your diamond painting project, framing your new artwork can be the ideal final touch. You can then hang them on the wall like normal paintings. Just remember to remove the glass panels from frames, because they prevent light from reaching all the facets on your rhinestones and this means it won’t sparkle much.
You can also consider turning your 5D painting project into a cover for a book on display or a decorative pillow. The surface is lovely to look at, but also to touch. You can stimulate multiple senses at once.
Just remember that you can’t wash the fabric because the drills will come loose. What you make should be ornamental, rather than something you use or touch on a daily basis.
