Hi crafters...

Here is something different from cards & paper crafting. For the Artsy Craftsy Mom Sep challenge- Ganesha, i wanted to do a quilled Ganesha, but i dint get adequate time. So sharing with you all a Ganesha painting i did a really long time ago.
I attended a Tanjore painting class long back before marriage. You all know Tanjore painting materials are very costly including the Gold foil, stones ets. I followed the same steps except dat i used wat i had at home.
First let me show the pics

The framed Ganesha

The close-up of Ganesha

Steps followed
1. The base is canvas board
2. I traced the Ganesha picture from a story book and drew the frame myself
3. For the embossed look on the frame, jewels and dress- mix chalk powder(2/3) & fevicol(1/3)
4. Apply the mixture with a lil spatula or spoon
5. Let it dry. 
6. Stick the stones, i used the ordinary stones available at local stores, not the kundan ones.
7. Next use a mehandi like cone and fill the same mixture and do all the detailing on the frame & jewels.
8. Now comes the painting part, used acrylic paint for this.

Am not very good at painting, but i loved my Ganesha very much since it was full n full my own effort. Also this is very easy for anyone who is even okay at painting. 

Do share ur comments on how do u think this is.
