Painting a Banyan Leaf

Painting on a banyan leaf is a different painting many of you might have heard of this. It will take a bit time to get the leaf into complete Net condition only with veins on them. I did soak at least 7 leaves and i got only 2 leaves properly out of it as some of them were in a bad condition.

How to make:
1. First of all you need some 2-3 banyan leaves and soak them in water for around 20 days.

2. After 20 days u can see the veins of leaves and other waste aside from the leaves.

3. Now wash the leave carefully in different water and remove all the waste from the leaves very carefully. Do it very slowly and carefully as there are chances of the leaves getting damaged.

4. After washing it and taking out properly you can see just the veins of leaves.

5. Now start painting your imagination on the leaves carefully using some 0-2 number brush.

6. The outcome of leaf painting is really beautiful.

Here is one of my creation.
