Description :

Create a beautiful Zharoka wall piece inspired by lippan art using clay, mirrors, and pastel paints. This DIY project guides you through designing, carving, and decorating for a stunning decorative piece.

STEP 1 : Source the base material
  • We are going to make a lippan design-inspired wooden plank using Mouldit and mirrors.
  • Take a wooden plank measuring 9” x 14”.
  • Paint the plank with a base coat of Acrylic Colour White 27. Let it dry.
STEP 2 : Paint the final coat

Paint the second coat using Acrylic Colour Pastel Pink from the Pastel Kit. Let it dry.

STEP 3 : Prepare the clay, make coil design and stick mirror
  • Draw the lippan-inspired design on the painted plank.
  • Stick an acrylic mirror in the center with Fabric Glue.
  • Prepare the clay dough by mixing Mouldit resin base and hardener, then roll the clay into thin coils and let them get semi-dry.
  • Start sticking the coils in a crisscross pattern around the mirror using Fabric Glue.
  • Similarly, create an arch shape with the clay around the mirror using clay carving tools. Let it dry.
STEP 4 : Stick the flowers and mirrors
  • Roll the dough to make a slab with a rolling pin, then use the flower plunger to create flowers from the slab.
  • Stick the flowers in between the diamond shapes created with the coils using Fabric Glue, ensuring that the flowers are placed in alternate diamond shapes.
  • Stick small diamond-shaped mirrors aesthetically on the plank with Fabric Glue. Let it dry.
STEP 5 : Finishing touches
  • Paint the coils with dry strokes of Acrylic Colour Pearl Metallic Gold 352. Let it dry.
  • Enhance the flowers by sticking pink ornamental stones using Fabric Glue. Let it dry.
  • Your Zharoka with lippan art is now ready to decorate the wall.
