This is my all time favorite work.Very easy work.This was done using m-seal and plaster of paris. we can also do this using chalk powder , ceramic powder etc.
M-seal/plaster of paris/chalk powder
Oil paint or acrylic
Varnish(if u use acrylic)
Gum and fevicol(if u use chalk powder)
Water(if u use plaster of paris)
Tools(nothing spl.. any thing u can get like pen cap, knife, to shape)
Pebbles etc(to decorate)
1) Trace /draw the design to be made on hard board/plywood.
2)Use mixture of chalk powder to do the design. Actually i did the body of the peacock with plaster of paris and then coated with mseal.Did the feathers and stones using mseal.(pebbles can be used for the stones , sand can be used depending on your design)
3)Using pen cap and knife i made the design on the feathers.(u can use anything to make the design)
4)Colour the picture.
5)Apply varnish(if using acrylic colours)
Actually couldn't find chalk powder or mseal here(US)once i find something ...planning to make jarokha :)
