Paint A Rice Sieve For Pongal
You Will Need :
Fevicryl Sunflower Kit, Fevicryl Pearl Metallic Gold, Fine Art Brush, Fine Art Canvas roll, Fevicol MR, Traditional rice sieve
Traditional farming methods use the rice sieve to separate rice from the husk. In every traditional house in India, rice sieves form a part of the decoration during Pongal/Sankranthi. Here’s a small DIY to decorate a rice sieve for the harvest festival.
Wipe the rice sieve with a dry cloth to clean the surface from dust.
Paint a simple design of your choice onto the Fine Art canvas roll using Fevicryl Acryliccolours.
I have painted a simple Warli-Madhubani fusion design which is known as Madhu-Warli. Warli is a traditional Indian art form from Maharashtra where Sankranthi is celebrated with great pomp!
Stick the painted canvas onto the rice sieve using Fevicol.
Use Fevicryl Acrylic colour- Sap Green to work on the weaves of the Rice Sieve.
Using a dry flat bush, give strokes of Fevicryl Acrylic Color- Pearl Metallic Gold to give a metallic gold finish on the painted areas.
Paint the remaining area of the rice sieve using Fevicryl Acrylic colour- Burnt Sienna.
The painted traditional rice seive can be kept in a corner for display or even be used to adorn a wall.
