Instead of creating a patented system for identifying colors by number, it makes logical sense to use this existing standardized system to identify the various colors of diamond drill bits. DMC stands for Dollfus-Mieg and Company. They use the same color code that is used for the embroidery thread (DMC number). It is the most popular yarn in the world.
That's why it's easy to keep track of your drills and add new ones to your existing collections of other paintings. But still, check the colors just in case before mixing the diamonds. Most companies will tell you the DMC for each color, which is a standard and almost the same in all (there may be slight variations). But there are some companies out there that do their thing and don't give you the DMC.
In addition, DMC numbers can also be used in any medium. Although the light pink shade is available in infinite quantities, the DMC-605 ct, an infinite range of pink tones, the DMC-605 will always refer to the same color. Because of this fact, you can also increase the diamond allowance if you have a more specific color requirement. It can also be used for future projects by keeping your drill extra.
There are already hundreds of colors with the corresponding DMC numbers. Among the Diamond Dotz colors, in addition to normal DMC analogs, there are also Aurora Borealis, Metallics, Neon & Glow-in-The Dark. This is a handy list of commonly used terms that you'll find essential both in diamond painting and when talking to other diamond painters around the world. The fact that the paints have the same color number makes it easier if, for example, you are missing the holes for a project.
If you choose to print it for reference when preparing your own diamond painting, use a very high quality laser printer to ensure the accuracy of your color samples. I have a diamond painting, I lost the paper that came with it and I was wondering if there is any way to find a copy. Diamond painting kits are used to create diamond art, which include a canvas that is printed with symbols and letters indicating the diamonds to be used instead. This is something that happens to all diamond painters, although it is more common in cheap diamond paintings.
Painting a 40 cm x 40 cm diamond painting from a 20 cm x 20 cm diamond format photo, with 25,600 diamonds, will give you a color saturation similar to diamond painting. You probably need to contact the company you bought it from and ask them for a copy, or you could ask on Facebook in Diamond Painting groups if anyone has it and they can make a copy for you. There are a lot of sealants that can be used, however, there is no need to seal a paint, especially if they are framed behind glass. That's why it's a good idea to track down and add the piercers from other paintings to your existing collection.
