Creat on your own - My week-end project

My Last week-end was Creative and that's why it was so good :)
And this will be my very first Craft related Post.
This time I experiment with "Salt Dough", sounds different but its easy. 
I made these flowers to decorate my Apt's wall and trust me, its kid friendly too..! You must try it.
A simple technique of "Neil Buchanan - Art Attack "

Three Simple steps for "Salt Dough" sculpture.
1. Make a dough with 2 cups of flour, 1 cup salt and 1 cup water.
2. Mold it and Shape it as you want, you can use water as glue, to fix two different pieces. (I cut this flower with Cookie Cutter) 
3. Bake it - 300*C for 25-30 min.

Now the fun part, Paint it with poster color or Acrylics.. :)
But before painting smooth it with Sand paper.

Note : To hang your sculpture insert a wire pin before backing, it will be fixed in it and you can easily hang it on wall.

Maa Pruthvi (Mother Earth)

Maa Pruthvi  ( માં પૃથ્વી - Mother Earth) on 12" x 16" Canvas. Medium - Acrylics

Happy Earth day to all beautiful readers. 
A day, we remember to appreciate nature and learn ways to protect our environment. A day, to promote awareness "Find ways that you can help keep the planet clean and help protect our environment!"

I have tried to explain the beauty of "Earth" by this painting "Maa Pruthvi ( માં પૃથ્વી )".
I turned "Goddess of Flower" in to "Maa Pruthvi" by adding some elements in it.
And to give Indian touch, I added earth as "Bindi" and a "Nose ring".
Beautiful birds on earth, Indian Peacock & Parrot increased charm of painting..!
And you can see all that detaining in these images.
What other thing can explain Sea Life/ Water life batter..?
Lovely Lotus and Fantastic Fish.
What else I can say,
"માં પૃથ્વી ની સુંદરતા અપણા જ હાથ માં છેMother Earth's beauty is in Our hand" 
Please Save it.

Panihari : The water woman of India

Panihari : The water woman of India, 
Mount on 12" x 16" Canvas, Medium - Acrylics.

When I started this painting I was not sure for its name. 
But today morning, I found a video and when I saw it, I got my answer.. Its perfect, "Panihari : The water woman of India". Panihari means "Woman who does the work of carrying water". 

A very important task, and its a routine for all woman who lives in small village.
 Every morning they fetch / Collect water from River, Pond or Well for house-hold purpose. 
Even today in some area of Gujarat & Rajasthan woman does this job. 

This time I experiment with dark colors to give these ladies "गॉव की गोरी " (Village Girl) look.
One more thing I've added here is "The hair decoration" to the woman in red.
Last month we went to "Maximum India Festival" in DC, and something I loved the most is the hair decoration piece, (specially for long braid hair styles) you can see that below..

This has a lot of detailing, a beautiful thing..! And this one is my favorite picture too...
I am Gujarati, and I can not forget my favourite Garbo (Song) that explain more about "Panihari".
Lovely music and sweet words.. And this is my first Video in YouTube..

I can not forget to share that video, that inspired me to name this painting
 "Panihari - The water woman of India" 
Well I hope you like this one too... 
Take care guys..!!
