Terracotta Fine Clay will be the best for Jewellery making as the particles are finer. Use either natural, Grey or White as per your requirement.

Hi, 

Decoupage starts with a plain and clean surface, Modge Podge and the pictures which we will like to use. Start with visualising the finished product and place the picture as per the plan. Glue them to the surface using Modge Podge. Ensure there is no air vacuum while sticking the pictures. Once dry apply Modge Podge on the picture to varnish it. This process can be repeated twice but the coat has to dry in between.

Hi, 

Fevicryl Shilpkar is an epoxy clay and would not work well with plastic. We can use Shilpkar on wood, mdf, painted glass bottles, terracotta and paper board. 
The surface has to be slightly permeable for Shilpkar to work best.

Hello Lakshmi, Shilpkar can be attached on any surface using little bit of fevicol Mr with it. It can be used on canvas boards,like Tanjore painting base work,on ply wood,on glass sheet....etc.

You can take a OHP sheet trace the required motif. Cut the required area with a cutter and your Stencil is ready. Place the stencil on any cloth and sponge dab with acrylic colours to get the required effect.

Take chat paper or any old book cover and draw the shape you want and cut it on the shape your stencil is redy

Hello Nikita,recently ive prepared a homemade stencil & used it on my dupatta.the final result was very good. Draw the required stencil design on the ivory sheet,c utout the outline part according to the design,next apply fabric glue on the stencil ,like a paint,let it dry completely. Finally ur stencil is ready to use.
