Mastering How to Seal a Diamond Painting in a Few Steps

Knowing how to seal a diamond painting is crucial to ensure its longevity. Follow these steps for a seamless sealing process:

  • Preparation: Before sealing, make sure all diamonds are firmly in place. If any are loose, use tweezers to adjust them.
  • Applying the Sealer: Place your painting on a flat surface. Shake the diamond paint acrylic sealer well and apply a thin, even layer using a soft-bristle brush. Be careful not to apply too much pressure or brush too vigorously. Allow the diamond paint finish to dry completely before proceeding.
  • Drying and Curing: It typically takes about 24 hours for a diamond paint finish to dry, but for best results, wait 48 hours for it to fully cure. During this time, keep your painting in a dust-free environment.

Following these steps on how to seal a diamond painting will ensure that your masterpiece remains radiant and protected.
