Meenakari work


This is called Meenakari work which is famous in Gujarat.
To do this, you need
1) MDF board or Canvas board
2) Glass paint water based
3) Metallic Silver 3D outliner
4) Silver dust
5) Glue n Gloss
6) Water
7) brushes
8) design of your choice.
At first, stick the design to the MDF board or you can draw the design in case of using canvas board.
Then, Mix Glue n gloss,water and Silver dust resp. in proportions of 1:1/2:1/4 spoons.
Apply the mixture to board, but the coat we apply should not be too thick so that when it dries up the design should be visible.
After the mixture dries up, outline the design with silver outliner. Now, you can add the colour of your choice, but the colour should be symmetrical on all sides.
Now, the Meenakari work is ready .
