I enjoyed working on this canvas & I had a lot of fun completing it! (I love cute dragons). I worked in 4 large strips (the bottom 1/4 of the canvas at a time) around so I didn't have to over reach across the d.p. All the symbols are really clear & easy to read, as are all the canvases I've purchased from DAC! The canvas is soft, but is sturdy. This kit came with round drills/diamonds, they are beautifully brilliant, shiny & DAC is starting to make their drills in-house which is awesome. I haven't found any other diamond paintings with this kind of excellent quality or awesomely prompt Customer Service & a warrenty that can't be beat. Thank you DAC, for producing another amazing kit!
