The Crystal Ganesha

For the last few months, I am completely in awe with the lord Ganesha’s idol. His round tummy, the baby elephant head and a distinctive appearance, everything is unique about him. And I am more fascinated by the infinite ways in which you can play artistically with that image. On Diwali I made a kandeel with lord Ganesha’s idol on its two of its faces. Yesterday I made a decorative piece for my office desk with crystal Ganesha’s on it.crystal ganesha

For that you will need:

Few shiny crystals (I took them from my aquarium 😀 )crystal

Red acylic color, Brush, Scissors, Fevicolred acrylic1

A cardboard of your choice ( I chose a 4”x4”)

Time to make: less than 15 minutes

How to make it: Cut cardboard to the desired size according to crystal’s size. Then paint it with red acrylic. Keep the paint a little thick, move the brush like uniform waves to give the board a textured look and leave it for 4 hours to dry. Thicker the paint, the better will be the texture and the more time it will take to dry. Stick the crystals on the colored cardboard in the fashion shown in the above picture with fevicol or crafty glue.  The beautiful crystal Ganesha is ready. You can put it in a golden metallic frame and give your wall an exquisite hanging.
