[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

If you're new to the wonderful world of Paint With Diamonds, you're probably a bit overwhelmed. Well, overwhelmed AND super excited to get started!

Well fear not, friend! We're here to hold your hand as you embark on your Paint With Diamonds journey!

[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

In our new PWD 101 series (PWD stands for Paint With Diamonds btw!), we'll walk new diamond painters through everything they need to know about this incredible new stress-relieving hobby. 

THIS WEEK: We're going to take a quick look at the difference between square drill and round drill diamond paintings!

DID YOU KNOW:In PWD, the term "diamond" can be used interchangeably with "resin" or "gem."

Square Vs. Round Drill: What's The Difference? 

[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

In Paint With Diamonds, a "drill" simply refers to the shape of each individual diamond you'll be applying to your canvas. If it's confusing, just replace the world "drill" in your head with the word "diamonds." 

  • Square Drill --> Square Diamonds 
  • Round Drill --> Round Diamonds

In choosing between square and round drill, it's important to know that there are no right answers. As with so many things in life, this is more or less a subjective preference! Your goal should be to choose whichever shape that YOU personally think is most beautiful :).  

QUICK SIDE NOTE: "5D DIAMONDS" - Confused about what "5D Diamonds" are? This is essentially a marketing buzzword that refers to the shape of the diamonds. With the resin diamonds featured below, "5D" refers to the shape you see that so beautifully reflects light to make the diamonds sparkle! 

Square Drill (aka Square Diamonds)

[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

What People Are Saying

Creates A Fuller, More Complete Looking Painting.

Square drill diamonds look a bit "cleaner" than round drill diamonds. They line up more easily and create a "fuller" mosaic look when enjoyed from a distance.

Square Diamonds Satisfyingly "Snap" Into Place. 

Sometimes it's the little things that matter! When you start making progress on a painting and begin filling in gaps, you get a satisfying "snap" and a sense of achievement, as dorky as that sounds! 

[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

---- 

Round Drill (aka Round Diamonds)

[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

Easier (And Faster!) To Pick Up And Apply Diamonds.  

Round diamonds just seem to stick to the diamond pen better, making the transition seem more seamless. 

Finished Painting Feels Less "Complete." 

Given the round shape of the diamonds, gaps between diamonds may appear more apparent when you're close up with the painting.

Final Word - What Do Hardcore PWD Fans Think?

We polled our Paint With Diamonds Support Group audience, and the answer couldn't be clearer. Have a look for yourself! 

[Pwd 101] Explained: How To Choose Between Round And Square Drill

The overwhelming majority prefers SQUARE over ROUND (383 vs 87!). In fact, almost twice as many of you are indifferent to whether your diamonds are square or round than actually prefer round! 

 

Do you agree with the consensus? Tell us why or why not in the comments down below!

I just started this hobby of PWD and the one painting I ordered is a Owl and it is a square drill, I do love it but it is a little hard to do as I have a hard time to see it and now I have ordered a round drill painting. I am anxious to try it out, the picture is of a dog, sure hope I will love doing this one , of course I will continue with my square one but of course it will take longer, very happy to have a new hobby to do!!!

I prefer round drills by far. They are neater, shinier, easy to line up straighter and the “gaps” people are talking about do not make a difference since good canvases match the drill color. Square drills have to be perfect or they look sloppy and out of line, they pop off if not placed perfectly and if not a consistency shape, look messy. You have to be careful where you buy the kits because drills can be very irregular thus making the picture look awful, especially if the drills are square. Sometimes you have to pay a title more form quality products. I’ve done many many paintings and prefer round.

My hands are a little bit shaky as I have emphysema and am on Albuterol which makes most people shaky. I have trouble getting the square diamonds exactly straight in the squares provided. After I have done a bunch will it show that they are a little wonky? I am having a dickens of time straightening them with tweezers.

I actually like doing the round ones simply because of ease, however the tacky backing is never as tough as the squares. I have done both and I do think the picture is better looking with the square diamonds. I am curious as to what pen someone you used other than the pink one that you use with the wax . They referred to a different type of pen and also said they could lay several resins at a time with their tweezers. I am pretty new to this so I am not sure of all the lingo and all of the things you can use. I did learn very quickly to have a light source underneath your picture to help determine the different letters numbers and symbols was almost a must, so I did order a package that had several things in it. I am unsure what the wide end of the pink pen does unless it is to pick up several resins at one time. Any answers someone can give me would be greatly appreciated. Even though I do think the squares are harder to do. I like the finished product better so I think that is what I will stick with.

So far I have only picked the square diamonds, but I have wondered about the round drills, the responses I have read people only like the square, so I will probably stay with them.
My only problem and it’s major is that I cannot find my drills for my John Wayne canvas that I am trying to make for my husband. I just want to buy the diamonds. Can I do that?

Squares. I have always preferred squares, but I thought I’d give a round one a try while I wait for my Square one on the slow boat from China. I have to use that pink pen. The pen isn’t my problem, it’s the pink wax stuff, or the moldable tack stuff. It’s all frustrating, I have to reload all the time and I can only pick one up at a time. I use tweezers with my square ones and it’s so much better, no sticky frustrating stuff and I can pick up and place 2-3 at a time. I can also push the diamonds around to get them perfect with my tweezers. The pink good just collapses when you try to push the round around with the end of it, so you better get right the first time.

I have done both round & square drill. I do this for relaxation & to ease my stress. The round drill are much more calming & relaxing. I really don’t see that much difference between the two when finished. Please give this minority an option for round drill on ALL paintings. Thanks.

I much prefer the square drills. Yes, it takes a bit more time, but the finished product looks so much better than round drills! I don’t care that the round drills can be placed “faster”, I am not looking for fast, I’m looking for the best when I’m finished. I’ve never had a problem with the square drills. Love the products!

I prefer the round diamonds. The square ones have to be right on and if they’re just a hair off the others won’t fit in place and it throws off the whole painting. Also at the end you have to push down on the drills on the painting to make sure all the diamonds click into place. Then I spray Mod Podge Super Glossy Acrylic spray to set the drills in place. Hope that helps others when picking either square or round.

Using the square is more tedious and nerve racking. If they’re not exactly straight they buckle. Some diamonds are not cut completely making them to big for the space thus creating lines that wobble. Using round, things flow better, I can enjoy doing the picture and it is done faster. The only way you actually see spaces if your up on top of the painting. The background is the same color as the diamond so it blends in nicely. And the shiny effect is more brilliant. I’ve done 30 of these so far and round is my choice.

I have tried both. I actually prefer Round. The Square ones take a LOT more time and the canvas printing is to hard to read The colors of the blocks on the canvas are Very hard to see, hence much more difficult to use the proper Diamond.

The first painting wad from yous and canvas was great, and very sticky. This 2nd one not so much. Differant company.

The round diamonds always come with the background the same color as the diamonds therefore you can hardly see the spaces also the printing is shaped round not square.

Tried all the tips to flatten the canvas. What works like a charm for me is putting the canvas between 2 pieces of cardboard and slipping it between my mattress and box spring overnight. Works!

I too have had trouble with the square diamonds. I found in large areas of the same color they start not lining up. Not giving up because portraits do look more realistic. Going to try a tip I just saw, stagger in a diamond pattern – lines up and just fill in. We’ll see! The ‘pop up’ s real & frustrating. Used glitter Modge Podge in the ‘pop up areas’ – kept beads glued and a little glitter effect to hide them.

Hi all, I have tried both square and round and the rounds you can go faster, the trick to squares is to center it on the drill pen and place it dead center on the canvas. I’m getting real fast at.

I’m working on my first PWD. My order came with square drill. I like how they fit into place and its pretty easy to place 1 at a time. However using the tool to place multiple diamonds at once, it starts to get sloppy and its really hard to get each of the squares to line up perfectly. They are hard to remove and replace, so I’m having some trouble with diamonds popping back up. I am planning on framing and hanging this piece, and in the long run I think it will be fine and not noticeable, but as a I work its very annoying for them to pop up and sometimes as I try to “smooth” the gems sometimes they pop right off.

If I do this again, I will have to try the round cut :)

The first two paintings I finished were using round diamonds. One was a partial painting and the other was a very large, white tiger, partial painting. Turned out awesome. Then I’ve started using square drills and the finished painting is fuller and
Looks more professional.

I’m on my third painting. First two used round drills. Easy and quick to place. Organized by number. Now, Using square drills, hard to place; Different cuts
are different sizes. Some concave drills too large for canvas pattern. Smaller drills look flat. Also uses symbols, not used to makes for slower work.

I have made over 50 of these for myself and as gifts. I prefer the ease of the round drills but the look of the square drills. Square drills take longer because you have to be more precise but the time invested is worth the quality of the finished product. I also frame them and embellish the frames with flowers, butterflies, feathers, etc. to match the picture. People love them and I have even been able to sell a few!

I’ve done many of both, and like each technique. My frustration lies in the fact that with the squares, you’ll hear them “snap” in place; then later you’ll see that many have popped up and you then have to go back and snap them down again.

That is taking the fun out of it for me.

I love the square gems best because the shading they give to a design is beautiful and to me offers more detail. It has such a “mosaic” look to it. I enjoy round gems in between my large square gem projects, for a nice break. Also, the squares seem to “shimmer” whereas the rounds seem to “sparkle”. 😎

i like the round ones. i find with the square ones that some of the colours of the square drill are just a touch larger than the chart square is and therefore your lines do not end up to be straight. by the time i get from side to side or top to bottom i am darn near a whole row out and god help you if you have to squeeze one in , it is just about impossible.

Square covers more than round but round is as stated easier to pick up and as for sticking not too much difference to me. Round seem to be easier to place as to where they’re placed, the owl I’m working on as gaps to and it’s square. I had trouble with the round ones being upright in the tray, they stuck to everything.

For me, it’s round drill. I have done many of these,some square, some round. The squares tend to pop out way too often, and it takes away from the enjoyment. After all, since I’m not going to frame/hang most of the ones I do, it’s all abut how much fun and how relaxing the hobby is. The round ones DO leave a little tiny gap, but they are really just as pretty when finished.

round drill for me – I have a slight hand tremor, and I find that lining up the squares is beyond me, whereas the round drills are forgiving when I try to line them up. So let’s hear it for round drill – without them, I couldn’t do diamond painting at all. oh, and my light box helps with the lining up process, too – I bought it part way through a picture, and really, you can see the difference it made to the finished picture.

Square drills are much more rich in detail. However it is very difficult to keep your lines straight and that is the most important detail for a great looking picture. Working with tweezers is not my idea of relaxing or fun. So please why has a pen w/a square tip not been introduced by any company? It would be sold out in a flash!!

Have done both round and square and it’s true that the round are much easier and faster to pick up and place accurately. The square ones could be just as easy if someone would produce a square pen that is actually designed for the square diamonds and is not just a modified round pen. This would allow much more control and precise placement of the square drills. It’s very hard to straighten out a square drill with a round pen and usually you have to remove the diamond and do over. This makes doing the square paintings much slower and more aggravating. When viewed from a distance, as you are supposed to do, I see little difference in the end result. I have ordered one of the square pens and am hopeful even a modified pen will make placing square drill easier. Am awaiting a custom painting which is full square drill and am kind of dreading doing it unless the square pen I ordered works well. But I do like these projects- it’s kind of like zoning out for me.

I love PWD!! I’ve used both round and square drills. My favorite still is the square. They seem to fill the canvas more than the round ones. I saw somewhere that there’s a square drill pen now and when I see it again, I’ll order it. But I love how the squares look and how they sound when they snap in. I’m working on my 5th PWD and I have several more to work on still.

I also hate the square drill. The drills or diamonds are not of a uniform size and that make lining them up a pain. I see more space between the drills than I do with the round drills. Some of the square drills are thinner, smaller, etc and some are bigger and wider. You have to be sure that you are paying close attention to what size you need and then you get a color where none of the fit where you need them. None of this happens with the round ones. As for the wrinkles, I read someone’s post on another site and they said they put a heavy towel on a hard surface, then the picture with the picture turned down on the towel. They then put another towel on top of that and use a warm iron (have to be careful with the heat) and iron the picture between the two towels. I have tried this and it worked for one picture and didn’t work very well on the other one. Love doing this and I must have close to 50 pictures to do.

The frustrating thing about this is trying to find the proper fitting frames so you can show off your art work after.
