Hi,
Its a beautiful site for beginners.Please let me know as to where I can buy handmade paper in Gurgaon or Delhi.What type of cloth is used for madhubani paintings.

thought said...

@Gajinder
I am glad ypu found the blog informative. Well I think handmade paper is easily available in local market or any paper shop in delhi. If you want to make on cloth you can use silk or khadi. Silk looks elegant while khadi gives a rough look to the painting.

Hi Sushma,
I painted with help of brush and poster colours. For outline you first try the ink pen on rough first because it may smudge.. But still it is more convenient than to draw outline with bush .. All the best

Hi,
Thanks for such an informative blog!
have just decided to start with Madhubani paiting. Just wanted to know whether I can use cartridge paper?
Also what kind of ink pen is required to make the outlines of such paintings?
Thanks

Gi Kajal,
You can definetly make madhubani on cartridge paper. You can also use a chart paper, Ivory sheet or handmade paper. For outlining you can use a black sketch pen or pilot pen.But first check that it is not smudging otherwise you can use black poster paint.
