Decorated cane tray

Yesterday I sat down and tried making flowers out of bread after a long time. One of my friends had gifted me chocolates on this cane tray which I had retained to work on it later. So I thought I will make a flowery wall plate out of it. 

For doing the bread craft, the method of making dough is almost the same as cornflower flowers. You just have to use bread in place of cornflower and no need of heating to make the dough. 

Be careful to wrap it in plastic as it dries fast.

Just keep making the flowers and arranging on whatever you want.Varnish in the end to give a glaze, which is still awaited in my work.

Will post the completed picture as soon as it is done.

Traditional painting in Mixed Media

What I  feel is that most of Indian artists are inspired by Rajasthani folk art.I am one of them. 

The painting is in mixed media. The base is a canvas board. The lady was drawn first. The rest of the background was done in POP. A  base was created by me in Plaster of Paris. Cone work was done in the background using a much thicker mixture. 

Now the whole picture was painted using Artist Acrylic Paints. You have to work fast as the paint dries very fast. 

Now the jewellery was created using the same paints filled in a cone. Along with this, even Gold outliner for glass painting was used. 

Now the painting was ready but to give a shine, hot ceremic was done in the end to protect the picture from dust.

To give it a complete Rajasthani finish, a frame from the same region was used.
