how to do it yourself

STEP 1:-

Take Fevicryl Shilpkar, mix the resin base and hardner evenly to form an even dough.
You can sprinkle little talcum powder on your hand to avoid sticking .

STEP 2:-

To make beads, take the Shilpkar dough and make 4-5 small round balls and 4-5 small oval shapes.
Leave it to semi dry (it should take approx 7-8 minutes)
Pierce the holes in the beads using a needle
Leave the needle in the bead and engrave the designs using a toothpick (dabbed with little talc)
You may create some lines , dots, criss-cross patterns on the beads
Leave it to harden

STEP 3:-

Give a base coat of acrylic white to all the beads
Insert a needle in the bead again, before you sponge dab the colour
Sponge dab Acrylic Colours- Light Green, Orange, Crimson, Lemon Yellow, on the beads
Sponge dab the colour very lightly on the beads
You may create shades of your choice by mixing two acrylic colours.
Leave to dry.

STEP 4:-

Tie thread on the key ring, alternately pass the round beads, silver beads and oval beads.
On the other end fix the wooden Ganesha murti and lastly tie the metal bell.
