Hello friends, hope you all are busy with your diwali preparations!! Today am sharing with you all my first attempt, in making a clay mural. I got introduced to this clay mural through the fb page fevicryl hobby ideas. I wanted to try it out  and it was pending in my wish list for a long time. Since the Diwali is approaching I decided to make a clay art of Kalash and here it is.

I used white air dry clay for my project.

Here goes the procedure:

Draw kalash in a cardboard  and cut it out. ( I used cardboard from an old packaging box). Cover the cardboard with a primer like gesso. ( I used white acrylic paint).

Draw the design of your choice . Here I have drawn a swasthik design. Roll the clay and paste it onto the design.

To make the leaves:
Take a small cmount of clay and roll it into a tear drop shape. Press it gently to get the shape of the leaf. Draw veins on the leaf using knife.

To make the coconut:
Take more clay and make a bigger tear drop shape. Press it to get the shape of a coconut. Cut a small sector down and draw lines using a knife.

To make the flower:

Cover the sides with golden ribbon and paint the kalash using the colours of your choice.

Apply 2 coats of varnish or glue and gloss to get the shine.

Hope you all liked my clay mural work.... Have a crafty weekend ....
