Create this beautiful neck piece representing Madhubani Art painted using Acrylic Colours.

STEP 1 : Mix Fevicryl Mouldit
  • Take Fevicryl Mouldit – resin base & hardener, mix well to form an even soft dough. 
STEP 2 : Clay slab technique
  • Roll the dough to make a thick slab using a rolling pin.   
STEP 3 : Paint the base coat
  • Take the clay slab and cut it into a small semi-circle.
  • It needs to be flat and smooth on all sides.
  • Use clay carving tools to pierce holes on the top and the curve edge, just like you see in the image. Let it dry.
  • Paint it with a base coat of Acrylic Colour Chrome Yellow 03. Let dry. Draw the Madhubani bird motifs on the semi-circle.
STEP 4 : Paint the design

  • Let it dry.
STEP 5 : Finishing touches
  • Take the blue colour thread to make the tassels.
  • Apply a thick coat of Fabric Glue on the backside of the neck piece.
  • Sandwich the blue tassels between the paper Canvas and Fabric glue applied area to paste them towards the curved edge of the necklace.
STEP 6 : Attach the string
  • String in wooden beads through a needle and thread.
  • Attach it to the pendant and your traditional necklace will look like this.
STEP 7 : Final look
  • Your Madhubani necklace is ready to wear!
