Method of Tanjore glass painting
- Glass paints,
- Oil paints,
- gold dust and the required medium for it,
- aluminium foil
Choose a design of Tanjore Style
Stick the design with tape on the corners and make the outline of the design using glass outliners on the reverse side of the glass. You can use black colour outliner or any colour of your choice. (To make outliners at home check out glass liners)
First put glass paints for shiny items like jewels, decoration etc....Wherever you stick stones in ordinary Tanjore painting, you have to put glass paint here. Better to use only red and green colour. Only they are very bright and suit for Gods. Make sure they don't come out of the outline. Clean any smudges then and there.
Later mix gold dust with medium and apply as background for jewels etc...
Then apply the oil paints with proper shading. Oil paints take a long time to dry, so start painting from top to bottom.
After drying frame with the Aluminium foil background for enhanced effect.
