Mix 2 to 3 drops of Acrylic Colour to the Shilpkar dough and knead it evenly to get pastel shades of all the colours that you mix with the Shilpkar dough
Leave the dough for 10 mins and then roll it into a slab using a rolling pin
The thickness of the slab rolled can be of about 2mm to 3mm thick
Cut the slabs in squares in the desired size. The mosaic chips used for this project are in the size of 1 'x 1' cm each
Let the chips dry and you can use them to create the mosaic design of your choice
