In Diamond Painting, there are some different kinds of drills that can be good to keep track of. In addition to the most common square and round drills, there are also specially shaped and rhinestone drills. Below you can read more about the different drills.
The square drills are just as the name suggests square. The size of them is 0.25cm x 0.25cm, so they are slightly smaller than the round ones. The square drills top are cut so that they have 9 sides. Which is considerably fewer than the round ones that have 16 sides.
Just as the name suggests, the round drills are round. They are 0.28 cm x 0.28 cm, which means they are slightly larger than the square drills. The top of the round drills are cut so that they have 16 sides, which is considerably more than the 9 sides the square have.
Special shaped drills
Special shaped drills are, as the name implies, drills that are different in size and have different shapes. These are often used for Diamond Painting with peacock motifs. Where you use the specially shaped drills for the tail of the peacock. The specially shaped drills are often found along with the rhinestone drills. I think the specially shaped drills give the paintings something a little extra.
Rhinestones drills are reminiscent of glass. They are round and have a flat surface at the top. The rhinestones are usually in combination with the specially shaped drills. Something that most people usually think is that they glitter much more than the usual round drills.
