A pretty confluence of Dokra and Pichwai art is what one sees in this DIY. Made for the festive season, we have an attractive backdrop of Pichwai and the faces of the Goddesses inspired by Dokra art style. Painted brilliantly with Fevicryl Acrylic & Metallic shades.
Take a 16” x 12” Fine Art Canvas board.
On a sheet of paper, draw a Pichwai inspired border suitable for the two sides of the canvas board (left & right borders).
Trace the Pichwai pattern on the canvas board using yellow carbon paper.
Paint the base and borders in typical Pichwai shades using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours - Dark Green 06, Lemon Yellow 11, Light Green 12, Orange 17, Pink 18, White 27, Deep Brilliant Purple 64, Greenery 67 & Neon Pink 018. Leave it to dry.
Take Fevicryl Mouldit – resin base & hardener, mix well to form an even soft dough.
Roll the dough to make a medium thick slab using a rolling pin.
Take some silver foil and shape it into an oval shape suitable to make a face.
Cover the silver foil shapes with an even layer of clay. Stick using Fevicryl Fabric Glue. Ensure the surface is even and smooth.
Take some clay and shape them into tiny rounds, teardrop and coiled shapes. Start sticking them to create the crown of the goddess with ornaments, eyes, nose, lips and chin emphasis. Give texture wherever needed using clay carving tools. Refer to the image for the finer nuances.
Paint the face with a base coat of Fevicryl Acrylic Colour - Black 02. Leave them to dry.
Paint the faces with Fevicryl Acrylic Colour Pearl Metallic - Gold 352, giving a metal look typical of how it appears in Dokra art.
Place the faces like you see in the image using Fevicryl Fabric Glue.
Take some clay and make coin shapes using the clay coiling technique. Make a few such roundels. Paint them using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours - Black 02 & Pearl Metallic Gold 352 giving it a burnished metallic look.
Surround each of the goddess’s faces with these clay coins using Fevicryl Fabric Glue. Once dried and ready your pretty & attractive composition would look like this.
