Last year, I have colored these diyas for Karthigai.. But when I took it out of the box, I felt sad on seeing their condition and I knew I can't use it... So I thought of repainting it as an act of reusing.. I realized that I can change it into a new one.. That idea felt awesome...
So here are my old diyas which I painted last year.. Believe me.. It looked beautiful last year..
As the first step, I painted a base of brown acrylic color.. When they were half dried, I repainted another coat on it... After that I applied the gold,silver and bronze metallic dust on them with my fingers..
When we apply metallic dust, the intricate patterns on the deepam wiil be clearly visible. Here is how they look now..
Hope you enjoyed this post... Thank you for visiting my blog.. Have a nice day..Happy Karthigai Deepam.. Keep on crafting..
