In this tutorial you will learn how to make this beautiful Ganesha Mural.
MDF Hard Board
Comb – hair comb
Brushes – good brushes size 0,000,2,4,6
Design you want to paint – (usually God or Goddess figure)
Yellow carbon paper
Pebeo Acrylic Glossy Spray/ any other Acrylic glossy spray
How to do?
First clean the hardboard using a sandpaper so that the surface becomes smooth. Now in a bowl mix chalk powder, glue and little water. It shouldn’t be very watery. The ratio of chalk powder to glue is 2:1, make sure its not water just a consistency that we use for mixing mehendi. Then using a Kitchen spatula/ Knife even spread the chalk powder mixture on to the hardboard, spread it neatly. Now let it dry for a day. Once its dried use the sandpaper and smooth en the surface once again.
Next Step is to trace the design to the tracing sheet so that your design still remains good. Now trace the design to the board using yellow carbon, very neatly and slowly, take your time. Once the design is been traced.
Make a mixture of chalk powder, glue and very little water. Make a cone using polythene cover and fill this mixture make a very small hole. Using this draw the outline and wherever you want an embossed effect. In this picture I have made all the jewelry. Next step is to stick the kundan stones where ever necessary. Let it dry. Once dried using the left over mixture give a thin coat of chalk powder surrounding the image. When its wet use an old hair comb and create designs, you can use any sharp tools to make background design/ texture. Once its dried, start painting. Use acrylic colors for the body and metallic colors for the ornaments. Once done let it dry. Spray Pebeo Acrylic Glossy Spray/ any other Acrylic glossy spray to finished work and give it for frame.
