STEP 2 : Mould the petals
  • Take the Mouldit resin base and hardener, mix it thoroughly to make even dough.
  • Take the dough, roll it to make the medium thin slab with rolling pin.
  • Let the slab get semi dry, mark and cut the petals of the lotus out of it.
  • Stick the petals appropriately on the terracotta diya using Fabric Glue.
  • Let it dry.
STEP 3 : Paint the base
  • Create the lines design on each petal with clay carving tools.
  • Let it dry completely.
