DIYA DECORATIONS


In this diya I used terrakoth diya witch i made at home with store brought terrakota clay.Take clay and mash it with lightly greased hands(can use cold cream for greas your hands) mash well and take a bowl any what we use in the kitchen and grease it with oil or cold cram and keep a butter paper sheet, make a thick roti with clay and place it onthe sheet and press lightly and leave for some time
preeheat the oven at 180c. for 10 min. keep some stones(pebbels) on clay raw diya like how we bake pie crust and bake it for 15- 20 min switch off the oven add remove and cool it
after cooling the diya aply some water on it and let it dry(this will help diya hold strong and it won't break and it don't take more color when we are painting diya)
now paint with your fav colour and decorate with glitter glue ans kundan or as you like are you can use mirrors also for this (where istick kundan you can replace there with mirror)
and under the diya again I used art.flower petels you can use fresh flowers are can draw a rongoli also that i will post in my next post.
Ihope you all like them.
