Small Things#36 – Bird House with Madhubani Art

Today, the kids had fun making and painting a wooden Bird House. They used wood and wood glue to create the structure and then spray painted it with white. They left it for drying.

Next, we made Patterns inspired by Indian Madhubani Folk Art on it and they went on to paint it in vibrant acrylic colors. Thank you for taking a look!😀

My Madhubani Artwork

The Madhubani painting kept me busy this holiday week. It is a folk art that expresses mythology as well as other old practices through bright colours, rich pattens and lovely figures. Traditionally, it is made with a special nib and natural colours but I adapted it, using ball point pen and acrylic. These paintings can brighten up any place in your house. Do tell me, what do you think!
