Online Natural Stone Colour Making Workshop With Mohan Prajapati

This workshop has done in two hours and was conducted over Zoom  - adults or children above 16 years can join. 

Mohan Prajapati will guide you about the intricacies and take your through a step-by step process while we create our own naturally derived stone colors. 

In Mughal style of miniature painting, the role and use of color is of extreme significance, both in terms of visual representation and symbolic meaning. Artist use colors which are derived from plants, vegetables and different types of earth colors from the range of clays, tree barks and natural material available.

In this workshop we will be learning about where these colors are derived from, reaching to the source of the material used to create these pigments. In the same duration we will learn to mix, grind and create pigments that can be used on canvas.

We will be making eight different colors which is a interesting process to go through, colors such as Blue from indigo, Red from Hansraj (Ingle), Yellow from Gond ka peela ( Gum from a type of tree) and many more.

The following materials will be sent by us for this workshop:
