M-Seal Art

Things required:
Earthen Pot or flower vase
Arclyic colours
Golden paint
Painting brushes
M-seal can be bought from a hardware shop. You have to mix the two parts into one. Recently mixed m-seal is available which can be used directly.
I have painted the vase with a coat of black. Keep aside for the paint to dry.
From the M-seal, make small balls and press with your fingers to form the petals . Arrange in the shape of flowers. Similarly make leaf shapes and long strings for the stems. Arrange as required on the pot. No need of glue, as m-seal sticks to the pot. Keep aside 1 or 2 hrs for drying.
Once it is dried, give colours for flowers leaves etc. I have given golden colour to create an antique look.
These type of art work are very simple and comes out beautifully. Children can be involved in these type of creative projects.

Beautiful Wall Piece of Lord Krishna

I am always fascinated by the pictures of Lord Krisha as small child. This particular poster I had bought it quite some time back. The picture is so fascinating, in the sense that if you look at it from any angle, you feel Krishna's eyes are looking at you. Also the divine look in the face s very attractive.

If I keep it as just a poster, it may get damaged or torn.

So I changed it into a wall hanging, and it is decorating my front hall. I have decorated Krishna's ornaments with stones and golden chamkis. White stones are used for the pearls in the picture, which adds shine. For the Zari's of the dress, curtains etc I used golden glitter , which is normally used for crafts.

Once done I chose to frame it with a good quality frame, so that it lasts longer.
