Atlast I finish off coloring the skin with oil colors. Light pinkish texture for both. I didnt give the Krishna’s usual dark Blue color as he is an avatar of Lord Kannan. I just wanted Krishna to be a lover of Radhai and an ordinary human being.

The enlightened circle is painted with 3D Glitter Silver color.

Now I have to paste an big foil of aluminium on the back side of the glass, where the whole paints are lying.

Then for framing. This time I am not going for Golden frame as it is a regular for the Deity Paintings. My son, whom I want to present this painting, wants an wooden finish of frame.

Next week I’ll post this lovely romantic painting with the frame. Because the frame man will take his own time like I did. 🙂

How to paint Glass Tanjore Painting

Yasoda Kannan II

Starting with the pearl colors for costumes, we have to decide the colors that match. Yasoda’s saree, its pallu, the veil, krishna’s angavastra colors must compliment each other. Vibrant colors can be used. The glass reflects bright colors the most.

Step 3

At first, clean up the extra gold paintings that edges out of the design by using a hairpin or such a thing.

Color the fabrics of your choice with pearl/acrylic colors. Pearl color goes well with tanjore type paintings. It shows the richness of the figurines that we paint.


When we are painting the eyes, do with extra care. Have to leave some white space in the pupil of the eye. First color the black (not pure black, mix some white) pupil and left it for dry. After dried, give pearl white for the remaining part of the eye. 

For the hair also, mix some brown color with black, especially for childrens’ hair. Always check whether the colors are fully filled the design, by just lifting the glass at 45 deg to let light.   

Next finish off with the pillars.For the pillars, I just go with 3D colors for the designed part and red acrylic for remaining. It blends well.
