Nava dhanya Work – How to do a Navadhanya Work?

This is a very simple Nava dhanya work.
Thing you need –
1) 9 types of grains.
2) Hardboard or Canvas of your choice
3) Glue
4) Design
5) Varnish

What to do?
First Step – Is to trace the design you have choose to the hard board.
Second Step – I have given out line using a gram – i choose a double beans/ a bigger grain so that it can look prominent. Its all up to…
Third Step – Fill / glue in the grains , i have used different grains according to my choice (p.s. availability of grains).
Fourth Step – Once its dried you can have to varnish evenly, if you dont then all bugs will eat the grains.

Inspiration of this work is from a work I saw in Landmark, Forum Shop
