Types of diamond Painting Sealers
There are two types of sealant
- Brush on sealers
- Sprays sealers
Let’s have a look at the sealers that can be applied through brushes
Brush-on sealers are the best sealant to prevent your diamond painting from any type of damage and this will definitely increase the life span of your diamond painting. You can choose a shiny or matt finish brush on the sealer.
- Can be used for other things like wood sealing as well
- Dust Proof
- You can mount your Painting without the Glass Frame
- Your diamonds will lose some shine after sealing
- You won’t be able to roll up your painting
Spray sealer is totally different from the Brush-on sealer. These are used to give a crystal clear and shiny finish to the diamond painting. But it didn’t fill the space between the diamonds like the brush-on sealers.
- This helps you to make your diamond sparkle for a long time.
- Dries Quickly
- You can roll up the finished canvas
- Gaps between the Diamonds will not be filled
- Less dust resistant
What type of sealer should you choose?
This is totally a personal choice. But if you want to know our opinion, we would highly recommend you to get a spray on sealer.
We love diamond painting because it shimmers, if we apply a thick layer of mod podge on the diamond painting it will lose its shining. So we suggest you always use a spray-on sealer.
