How to paint Glass Tanjore Paintings

                 

Yasoda and Kannan

                Krishna(Kannan) belonged to the Vrishni clan of Yadavas from Mathura, and was the eighth son born to the princess Devaki, and her husband Vasudeva.  The king Kansa, Devaki’s brother, had ascended the throne by imprisoning his father, King Ugrasena. Afraid of a prophecy that predicted his death at the hands of Devaki’s eighth son, Kansa had the couple locked into a prison cell and killed all seven.

                Krishna, who was born to Devaki as the eighth child, was given to Yashoda and Nanda in Gokul, by Krishna’s father Vasudeva on the night of his birth. Thus, Yasoda was the foster-mother of  Krishna.With the discovery of Krishna’s real parents as well as the public knowledge that he is the heir apparent of Mathura, Yashoda had to let go of her son in the end.

                Various childhood episodes or Lilas of Krishna, growing in Yashoda’s household abound in Hindu religious texts. The stories of Krishna’s childhood and youth tell how he became a cow herder, his mischievous pranks as Makhan Chor (butter thief) and his role as a protector of the people of Vrindavana.


Glass Tanjore Painting

Tanjore Paintings of Hindu God/Goddess done on Glass is decorative, attractive and cost less than Tanjore paintings. 

Step 1

Have the design with reverse side of the transparent tracing sheet on the glass. 

Because we are drawing on the reverse side of the glass. 

So that it’ll be perfect, when it’s viewed from the front side. 



I draw the traced picture of Yasoda Kannan over the reverse side of the glass. 

Keep a white sheet of paper underneath, so that the design is clearly seen. 

 

Step 2

Apply the gold color(Pearl metallic or Gold powder mixed) for ornaments and glass colors/stone colors/3D colors for stones in jewels.



When applying, just lift the glass and see whether the color completely filled the design. 


Viewing(front) side of the painting



Today, I just finished with this level. Day after tomorrow (two days time for drying) we will finish the acrylic/pearl colors for fabrics in the design.

    • u can use the glass outliner only for stained glass paintings as we have to fill the space with glass colors….
      for this u can use rotring pen for drawing the outline or if u r well versed with brush strokes, use a thin bristles brush for this purpose.

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
