Crafts using Thermocol

Hi Gauri,

Its very simple.

Things needed

Thermocol sheet / Cardboard sheet

Thermocol balls – easily available in market in different colors


Fabric colors

Tracing sheet / design


How to do?

Its not very easy to trace the design on thermocol sheet, but once have given an outline you can draw with a charcoal. Once you have traced the design you want, first one has to paint the background, once the background has dried I gave white thermocol balls as out line and as and what i need filled in colors and rest painted using fabric colors.

Any doubts feel free to write.
