how to do it yourself

STEP 1:-

Take a wooden oval placemat
Give a base coat in maroon colour
You may give two coats for an even finish

You may first draw the names on an A4 sized white paper and trace it on the placemat using a carbon paper

Take natural clay
We have made 3 heads - father's, mother's and daughter's.
The father's head is the biggest in size and is made from a ball of clay the size as that of a big lemon
Leave the clay pebbles to dry completely (it may take a day or two to dry )

STEP 5:-

Colour the faces in shades of tan made by mixing Burnt Sienna, a tinge of Crimson and White
Use Black to colour the hair and eyes and Crimson to make the smiles
Leave it to dry

STEP 6:-

Arrange and stick the faces, punched flowers and the sequins in an arrangement of your choice or as seen in the image
You may hang it on the wall by piercing a hole on top or make it stand on the table.
