And when you see the Diamond Painting experts share that they finish their 80x100 in 3 months only, do you wonder how they can and why you are so slow? If any, here we get all tips for you to boost your work in progress like an expert. “But I am now already an expert hmmm” Then we bet these tricks below will WOW you.
MAKE A PERFECT PREPARATION BEFORE YOU START
Set up your corner: We see that many painters don’t even have their Diamond Painting corner and every when they work, they go around their home to gather canvas, beads and tools. It’s definitely a time-killer. If you want to speed up your work in progress, you had better set up your Diamond Painting corner first. Well organize all tools and gadgets you need there and when you start your project, just sit down, everything you need is around your arm’s reach.
Don’t let tiny things bother: If you wear a long-sleeved shirt, roll your sleeves up. If you have smooth silky hair, put it up in a ponytail. Otherwise, those tiny fibers and hair will stick to the glue on your canvas.
Stay focus on your canvas: The sound from neighbors or vehicles outside may distract you. Increasing your attention by listening to your favorite song. Time flies so quickly when you focus on your Diamond Painting only, your playlist will end with a big section finished.
Organize your beads: The last step for your perfect preparation and a smooth work in progress then must be your beads storage. We can’t find any Diamond Painting expert who doesn’t own a well-organized beads corner. Containing your beads in transparent boxes with DMC stickers not only makes your working place look more neatly but also prevents you from dropping or losing them.
ALL TIPS & TRICKS FOR A SPEEDY WORK IN PROGRESS
Use a large tray: You’re working on your project and the beads in your trays immediately run out, you have to stop for a while to refill. It’s okay one time but if it repeats, repeats and repeats?

Keep your tray in your reach: It’s a tip we learn from our experts. When working, you have to keep your tray as close as possible to your arm’s reach. If you let it too far, you have to spend more time moving your arm between the tray and the canvas. And we’re sure that no one wants to waste their time just to move.
