There are 447 different DMC numbers together, which means there are 447 different colored diamonds available for use when painting with diamonds. When learning to paint with diamonds, things like DMC color charts can seem confusing. The good news, however, is that they are quite simple. DMC numbers are just an easy way to label colors and distinguish between similar shades of the same color.
Understanding DMC's color chart for diamond painting is very easy once you get the hang of it. We offer 447 DMC colors in Square Drills and 445 DMC colors in Round Drills. We are currently unable to purchase round drills in DMC Blanc %26 Ecru. 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.
In other words, if you have a pack of pink diamond drills with color code 605, you can go to a craft store and buy DMC embroidery thread of the same color with the same code. You can also use your DMC color chart to cross-reference diamonds from other companies that don't use DMC numbers. However, the main difference is that the diamond painting chart features close-up images of additional rhinestones that can be used to determine the color you have. 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 is an online chart, it is a diamond point conversion chart to help figure things out if that doesn't work, you can download the Gemsflow app to help with the color chart or you can also buy such a chart at any craft store. But what is the difference, you ask? First of all, these are all different color codes of diamonds. Among the Diamond Dotz colors, in addition to normal DMC analogs, there are also Aurora Borealis, Metallics, Neon %26 Glow-in-The Dark. The colors are an approximation of what diamond painting bits should look like according to DMC color guidelines.
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. In the world of diamond embroidery, there are 447 colors that, in addition to their respective names, comply with a “DMC code” or “DMC number”, that is, the reference code of the color chart published by the company DMC (Dollfus-Mieg et Compagnie) and taken up by all industrialists in the sector. With a DMC color chart, you can compare the holes of these other brands and determine which number of DMC they correspond to. Let's start with the fact that DMC, Diamond Dotz and AB drills are all diamond painting bits.
This number can also be found in the symbol table that lets you know which diamond color corresponds to each symbol on your canvas.
