This border design was painted using hand made paint with both natural and synthetic pigmnts. Some semi precious stones were used including Lapis Lazuli, Malachite and Cinnibar. I also used the synthetic colours Chrome Yellow, and French Ultramarine.
I learnt how to make paints using natural pigments both from my tutor Ajay Sharma in Jaipur and also from David Cranswick who is a visiting tutor at The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, he also runs amazing workshops as part of the open programme course at the school
