Is 3D better than 5D? what is the difference?

What is the difference between 3D & 5D paintings do we have the answer?


3D diamond painting, as well as 5D diamond painting, involves placing small rhinestones or beads, also called diamonds or “drills”,   you put these onto either a numbered or a blank canvas. The drills are tiny; they are about 2.5x2.5mm.  The 3D and 5d DIY diamond painting consist of rhinestones drills that have nine total facets - 3 on each side.
The 5D Diamond painting has drills that have five facets on each side for a total of 15 aspects. These drills tend to have more sparkle and brilliance to them. Because they have more sides ( facets), You will also have a thicker appearance with 5D painting.

Depending on how much time, effort and expense you want to put forth in your diamond art painting is something to consider when you buy your kit. You can get different types of DIY 5D diamond painting. You would surely hate to start a  new kit and then realize it is too huge of a project or worse, not like the look of your creation when it's finished.

There are a few things to think about that help with understanding what everyone has to decide on when buying a painting. One thing is what drill ( diamonds) do you want to use and what kind of kit do you want to buy.

The Partial Drill Kit:

 It contains a canvas which has certain parts already done. Only some of the painting has numbers to place the rhinestones. 

The Full Drill Kit:

This kit is 100% work for you, (Enjoyable work)The entire area will need the diamonds put on the canvas  But the result can be amazing, stunning and most certainly stand out as a brilliant created piece of artwork See the picture above this is a full drill.

The downside is this is a large and time-consuming process, requiring a lot of patience, time and effort. But completing a diamond art painting like this would give you a great sense of accomplishment! An example of a full drill kit seen above is a  5D diamond landscape painting we have here in our store. 

The round/square diamond Kit:

Multi-panel diamond painting kits:
Your diamond painting kit contains either a full or partial drill canvas. The only difference is that multi-paneled prints make completing the work with more than one picture for the entire set to show as being completed.
Perfect for large decorating projects, Take a look at the Elephant Square Multi-Diamond Painting below this is a great example of a diamond painting that is multi-paneled and you can absolutely see the brightwork and popping color required to do this kind of diamond artwork. You can also see this painting in our store.

We hope that now you have a better understanding of the difference between 3D and 5D diamond paintings. Now you will be able to make an informed decision the next time you are looking for a diamond painting kit.
