How to Separate Beads that are Stuck Together


Have you ever experienced opening a bag of diamond painting beads and some of them are stuck together and in clumps? I'm glad that you're reading this newsletter as we're bringing you today some amazing tips to help you in separating your beads that are stuck together.

The first trick we want to share with you is actually really simple and something you already have in your kit. If you see some beads that are stuck together and you can't remove them with your fingers, just place the beads on your tray, place another tray on top of the beads and just press it together. You might have to grind them a repeatedly but that should do the trick! 😉

Another tool you can use for this is a diamond painting beads separator. This is so easy to use as you just have to put the beads inside, close the lid, and turn it clockwise. This tool will help grind the beads safely and separate them. You definitely won't be worried about damaging your beads in the process.

There are also some instances wherein the diamonds are stuck together because of static. The best way to resolve this is by wiping them with dryer sheets. You can also wipe your diamond painting pen, tweezers, and tray to remove the static. After wiping your beads and tools, cut small strips of dryer sheet and put them in your containers. This will ensure that your beads will not clump together again once you're ready to use them. 👌

Here's a sample photo that Heather shared in our Facebook group.  She puts small dryer sheets in each of her containers even the ones in the ziplock bags. She just keeps them there to make sure her beads are always ready once she needs them.

Take things up a notch...


This beads separator is the only tool you'll need to help separate the diamonds that are stuck together. This is the easiest and most efficient tool to use without damaging your beads.
