• It’s an intricate time taking art form.
  • It is done on a handmade sheet or any thick sheet. Just make sure you start painting on the rough side of the sheet. Colours will slip on the smooth side.
  • Traditionally, a special nib is used to draw lines with black ink in Madhubani art. However, a black marker pen can be used to draw the outline ( I would suggest you to use a water resistant pen ).
  • Acrylic colours are used the on paper. Round tip brushes are used to fill colours.




I had a lot of fun making this DIY madhubani painting. Although it was a little time taking due to the details but it  is worth the effort. It looks beautiful and I am definitely going to frame it.
