Mural on canvas

I love paintings and mural work. I have done some mural work on mdf board like key holders, number board, name board, etc..  but I always wanted to try something different on canvas apart from oil painting. Oil paintings are amazing but it takes a very long time. So I decided to try something different this time by  using acrylic colors and m-seal.  Its just an attempt from me to try something new.  This might give you guys ideas.  Apologize for bad coloring. I made the background look a bit like oil painting.  

Materials required:
1. Canvas board
2. M-seal (white)
3. Glue
4. Acrylic paint
5. Clear varnish
6. Talcum powder (for mixing m-seal since they are very sticky)

Mix grey and white portions of m-seal together.
Make murals like flowers and leaves and paste them on canvas.
Use light colors for background on canvas.
Use bright/dark colors to paint on dried m-seal.
Once the paint dries, apply 2 coats of clear varnish and let it dry for 24 hours.

Rangoli design on MDF board

This is super easy and simple art. It’s perfect for gifting and decorative during festival time. I got this design made out from a mdf board. I drew this design in a paper and got the cut on board made from a carpenter. I then applied 2 coats of white paint on both sides of the board and let it dry for a day. I selected the kundan stones and small mirrors to be pasted for the picture.

I first painted the board with my deisred colors (yellow, blue, red, green). In my other posts, I would have mentioned that yellow makes the entire art look bright and rich. Its my favorite color for painting. I used different colors of 3d glitters to paste the stones.  I took silver and gold 3d glitters for the outline of the board. I let it dry for a day in the sun. I then applied 3 coats of clear varnish. I used different sizes of brush for varnish because they are some small places to apply them. Once its dry I turned it over and applied varnish on the other side as well, same 3 coats. After its dry, its all ready to use. I placed a tea candle in the middle and it looked lovely. You can draw your desired design and get it made from a carpenter. Enjoy....

Warli on cloth using white paint

This is my next attempt on warli art. I dyed the white linen cloth with brown and let it dry for 3 days and ironed it thoroughly and let it for 3 days. I was very slow in preparing and doing this picture due to my busy schedule. Though it took this long for preparation I was happy with the result.  I wanted to make something different with warli and big. So what I did was I selected a bunch of pictures and applied all of it in one picture. I first tried them out on a normal paper and then used it on cloth. I used a white color pencil to draw the designs on cloth. I painted them using white color. The picture has a lot of small details which I added. Once I finished the picture, I had it framed and sold it no time.
