how to do it yourself

STEP 1:-

Take 4 packets of Shilpkar to make the pooja thali

Leave to the dough to set for 10 min

You may rub a little talcum powder on the slab to avoid the leaf from sticking on the slab

The top coat is painted in green made by mixing Water Based - Glass Colours - Golden Yellow and Crystal Green
