Thoroughly de-starch the cotton fabric by boiling it for a couple of minutes in water. After de-starching the cloth, hang it out to dry and Iron it well to remove all the creases.
Do a Fan-folding (like the way pleats are made for a saree) for the cloth and iron it along the folds.
Tie knots along the length of the fabric to make 7 divisions. Refer to the image.
Dip the entire cloth in water to make it wet. Make sure that the cloth absorbs sufficient water. Squeeze out excess Water and lay the cloth flat onto a newspaper. Start painting from one end of the cloth using various colors. As soon as you are done with this step, open out the fabric and let it out to dry.
Select a card paper and fold it to form a card.
Cut out triangular shapes from the colored fabrics.
Stick the triangular fabrics onto the card surface using Fabric Glue, to form the body of the Warli tribal.
Give an outline using Fevicryl 3D outliner cones of your choice, to seal rough edges of the fabric. I have used Fevicryl 3D outliner cones: Glitter Gold and Glitter Silver.
Use Fevicryl 3D outliner Glitter black to work on the head, hands and legs of the two figures.
You can further embellish the card by using a mixture of Fevicryl 3D outliner cones to form dots that represent a splash of color. Allow this to dry.
Use Rangeela tempera colors to make the card colorful.
