Madhubani Wall Hanging



My fetish for Madhubani painting continues.. Although we shifted to our new house 2 years back, decorating it happened in phases and is still happening. We still have to adorn our walls with interesting art pieces. One such wall was the partition between the living and master bedroom. I found a beautiful Madhubani wall hanging in My Dream Canvas and was completely awed by it. We had leftovers of hand made paper that we bought for our earlier projects.

Madubani Painting

Madubani Wall hanging
You would get handmade papers in Fab India. We purchased ours from Auroville on Cathedral road, chennai. The problem with hand made paper- water or oil based painting cannot be done. It has to be acrylic and I used acrylic thinner as the medium. To give it a 'close-to-original' look, I used just the basic colors. (In the past, people only used vegetable dyes and hence had fewer color options). So here it is - Ram and sita who are the subjects in most Madhubani paintings.


We couldn't wait for the framed pictures to get displayed. It took less than 10 minutes for it to get installed making an electric drill a handy tool to have at home :)

  9. These paintings are beautiful and I can totally understand how difficult it is to wait for the painting to be framed. Most of my paintings are hung in their raw form!

    I see you have an eye for art and that is why you noticed that painting in my post. Since you asked for a close-up picture, you can find it here http://tanyaanurag.blogspot.com/2011/05/more-of-indoor-blooms.html

    I would love to get your views on my paintings :)

  11. Beautiful paintings Preethi, try using stencils for handmade papers. It's very easy to work with them and more reliable too.
