1.Keep your design protected at all times with the film, and keep tweezers handy to remove pet hairs or anything else that gets into your design while you’re working.
2.Keep your Diamond out of reach of children or pets. There are too many small dots and you don’t want them to get their hands on it! I place mine in my craft room on the desk when not in use.
3.Work from the bottom up so that you don’t have too much of your design exposed.
4.If you don’t place your Diamond directly on top of the symbol (oopsie!), use the end of the stylus or tweezers to push into place. It works well.
5.If you get your fabric dirty at all during the working process, gently wipe with soft damp cloth and cold water.
6.After each session, place the protective film over the top of your Diamond design and roll something over the top to make sure the dots are in place. Do this at the very end as well.
