Fabric painting-DIY-Fruit Basket

"When eating a fruit, think of the person who planted the tree"- Proverb

Hello everyone..

Today, I have painted a good old fruit basket.. Whatever we draw, drawing some classics always feels good.. I have used the blending technique..

Things needed:

Poplin is a fabric woven with criss cross ribs of any fiber such as cotton,wool,silk,etc., which gives it a strong texture and it prevents any paint from oozing down through it. White poplin works well with most acrylic or fabric colors but any color fabric is fine.
  1. Buy Poplin cloth here 
  2.  Many Different colors of Acrylic/Fabric paints
  3.  Paint Brushes
  4. Painting Frame
 

Other Essentials:
  1. An old cloth for cleaning brushes in between changing colors
  2. An old piece of card or paper to place under the fabric
  3. Clean water
  4. A mixing tray(Optional in case we want to mix certain colours)
I have hand drawn this fruit basket on a paper and traced it on to a poplin fabric, like on my Fabric painting-Peacock post

Now fruits are colored with blending..


The following colors are used for the friuts
  • Mango-Lemon yellow+crimson
  • Orange-Lemon yellow+orange
  • Olive-black+yellow
  • Grapes-Deep purple+white
  • Apple-crimson+white
  • Strawberry-crimson+white
  • Pineapple-Lemon yellow+Orange+green
  • Plums-Deep purple+cerulean blue
  • Leaves=Light green+white+black

For the basket, The brown is blended with white in the center..


The painting is outlined with Black..

The finished painiting..

Crafts-Flower Making-Ohp Petals and a Butterfly..

"Where flower blooms so does hope"-Famous quote

Hello everyone..

Today I have made a flower with OHP sheet petals and a butterfly with OHP sheet wings.. The idea of this flower came when I came across some excess OHP sheet which was left over from my Varmalakshmi Head Alankara.. and some shilpkar mseal left over from my Ganesh Mantap...



A petal is made by painting on an OHP sheet with acrylic paint..

 Then, the petals are inserted into a flower center made with shilpkar mseal . Leave some mseal under the flower so we can cover it onto a metal wire to form a stem..



Then the flower center is pricked with a safety pin to form dots..

Now a butterfly is made in the same way i.e.,OHP sheet wings colored with acrylic paint and inserted into a body made with shilpkar mseal..
A metal wire is attached to the bottom of the body of the butterfly..

The butterfly is then inserted into the flower center..


Now the stem is made by covering a metal wire with mseal and it is colored green.. The flower center is colored yellow.. The butterfly body is colored with yellow and black..

Now, the flower is inserted into a flower bed(oasis) and placed in a plastic flowerpot..


Our beautiful OHP Flower and Butterfly is ready for display..

You can buy the supplies here..
