Description :

Here is a pretty rakhi that's made using the napkin / tissue decoupage technique. A different and unique way of making it even more interesting.

STEP 1 : Prepare the dough / clay

Take Fevicryl Mouldit – resin base & hardener, mix well to form an even soft dough

STEP 2 : Shaping the peony flower

Take the clay and form a peony flower with layers and textures using clay carving tools / paper cutter. Refer to the image.

STEP 3 : Painting the peony flower

Start painting the flower in the shading technique using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours - Chrome Yellow 03, White 27 & Neon Pink 018. Let it dry.

STEP 4 : The base for the rakhi

Take a 1.5” diameter of an MDF circle, make holes on two opposite sides like you see in the image. 

STEP 5 : Tissue decoupage

Choose a contrasting tissue (plain or printed) to go with the peony flower. Stick it neatly on the MDF circle using Fevicryl Modge Podge. Ensure there are no paper creases or air bubbles. Let it dry.

STEP 6 : Creating a stencil pattern

Create a small geometrical stencil pattern on a corner of the base using Fevicryl Acrylic Colour – White 27, let it dry.

STEP 7 : Enhancing the stencil pattern

Using Fevicryl Acrylic Colour Pearl Metallic – Gold 352, paint over the white stencil pattern, to give a rich and enhanced look. A kind of embossed look. 

STEP 8 : Assembling and final look

Place & stick the peony flower on top of the circular base using Fevicryl Fabric Glue. Also stick a green festive thread / cord below to make it a rakhi. Once ready your festive rakhi that’s handmade will look like this.
