Bastar art prevalent and predominant in Chhatisgarh, India is a work of art that requires skill and craftsmanship. Taking inspiration from this comes our DIY that has Bastar art created using Fevicryl Mouldit and painted in rich metallic shades.
Take an oval mould like the one you see in the image. The face would be developed around this shape using Fevicryl Mouldit.
Take Fevicryl Mouldit – resin base & hardener, mix well to make an even soft dough.
Roll the dough to make a medium thin slab using a rolling pin.
Mark and cut a large leaf from the clay slab using a paper cutter, create veins and texture using clay carving tools.
Take the oval mould and wrap the clay slab around it very neatly, ensuring the edges are smooth with a good finish. Make few thin delicate clay coils and create the hair and accessory on the head. Stick using Fevicryl Fabric Glue.
With clay and clay coils make the eyes, ears, neck and the accessories on the tribal face, just like you see in the image above.
On a sheet of paper draw a peepal tree in the Gond style. This would be the backdrop on the canvas.
Take a canvas board that measures 10”x12” in size. Trace the peepal tree on it.
Start painting the tribal face and the leaf using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours - Black 02. Let it dry.
Paint over using Fevicryl Acrylic Colour Pearl Metallic - Gold 352, to give burnished metallic look. Let it dry.
Begin painting the Gond tree using Fevicryl Acrylic Colours - Black 02, Chrome Yellow 03, Crimson 04, Light Green 12, Maroon 14, Ultramarine Blue 23, White 27, Sky Blue 63, Greenery 67.
Stick the tribal face aesthetically on the leaf. Stick this on the canvas with the tree as it’s backdrop, like you see in the image. Stick using Fevicryl Fabric Glue. Let it dry.
The Bastar art on canvas once completed will look like this, attractive & in keeping with the aesthetics.
