Square Diamond Drill "VS" Round Diamond Drills
What is the difference and which one should you choose?
First of all one drill is not better than the other it is a matter of preference, like having two different kinds of paint, or two different kinds of pens or pencils. Depends on the effect you are looking for in your painting! You must try the different styles to be able to see the difference. Square drills are tightly woven together with no gaps, and there are two different types, 9 cut diamonds, and 13 cut diamonds, and each reflects a different type of light, just like a real diamond. Most square drill paintings will have a mixture of both cuts for more of a 3D or 5D effect. The more cuts the more brilliant the shine will be! Since square diamonds are placed tightly together they have a shine more like glass. Personally, I prefer the square drills on landscapes and scenery type paintings. Like I said though it is a matter of preference. No right or wrong! Some diamond paintings will come in either round or square drills, and others will come in both so you can choose the finish you would like.
Now there are round drill diamonds, which now also come in two different types. There are the regular type round drills that are cut 16 times for a brilliant shine like glitter. Also just recently a new super shiny round drill just can out not too long ago that has 26 cut sections for a super shiny, bling, bling effect! The new 28mm third generation of steeple drill diamonds are also known as the Rubik Cube Diamonds! Now if it is WOW factor of shine like glitter you want in your painting then by all means purchase one of the new diamond paintings with the Rubik Cube round drills. If you want your painting to have that bling factor then definitely choose round drills. Round drill diamond paintings are a little easier to do because they are not woven as tight as the square drills and placement is easier because you do not have to get them as straight as the square drills. Most partial drill diamond paintings are in round drill to make your painting have more of a 3D effect on the focal point and the background is painted in. You get a better blend with round drills on a partial diamond painting.
