We advise you to store your diamonds in a box like pearl box or pillbox, it avoids losing them and it is even more convenient to store them.

2. Begin filling the canvas:

Once your material is ready, it is now time to attack the filling of the canvas.

For this, lift a part of the protective film. In each box there is a small symbol that corresponds to a diamond color.

To find out which color to paste, just look at the legend on the side of the image.

Once you have found the number to match the symbol, you just have to take the corresponding color.

Pour some diamonds into the grooved receptacle. Shake slightly to place the diamonds in the correct position, so they will be easier to take.

Bring the tweezers or stylus to catch the diamonds and place them in the space provided on the canvas. Adjust your position and you're done!

Repeat for all the symbols and admire the result!

When you're done with one color, put them away and move to another one.
