We have already discussed in our previous blog How Tanjore Paintings are made in general. We have also shown the Step by step illustration of making of Durga Tanjore painting in our previous blog. To make it useful for the user, we are adding this article so that you can try making Tanjore Paintings yourself. We believe that this will serve as a starting point for beginners.

  • Jaipur Stones - Sizes and shapes as needed
