You spent tons of time perfecting your dazzling diamond painting and now it’s time to show it off! One of the best ways to immortalize your one-of-a-kind work of art is to frame it so that it becomes a permanent part of your home décor and so that you can admire it every day. 

However, when it comes to framing diamond paintings, you need to carefully consider which frame size will fit your canvas. This blog will give you some useful tips to choose the right one.

1. Types of canvas size.

Currently, there are 2 main types of canvas size on the market:

  • High-quality Canvas: Canvas size would be picture size. With this type, the actual size of the whole canvas is equal to the picture size plus 6-8cm edges. (Canvas size = Picture size)

Ex: Canvas size: 40x50cm => Picture size: 40x50cm => Actual size: 46x56cm

Ex: Canvas size: 40x50cm => Picture size: 34x44cm + Edges: 6cm

  • Step 2: Choose frame size based on the picture size. 

Tip: Frame size would be inches size.

    Yes this article helps. Thanks. I have another concern. The last dp l did with the fat cat and the little ones was so difficult because of the canvas l almost gave up. The canvas wasn’t sticky enough so when l tried to put a diamond down the canvas wasn’t sticky enough to pull it off the pen. I was so disappointed. I always order from you.

      Hi Jeannette,
      I’m so sorry for your matter. After dipping your placer into the wax, please pick the drills gently, don’t be strong and the drills will be tightly stick on your pen.
      Furthermore, please send us some photos of your pictures to our mailbox then we can help you further.
      Thank you!
