Putti made a Clay Ganesha Idol for the upcoming festival.every year, I bought airdry clay to make an idol for the festival. And this time Putti was very particular that she wanted to make an idol too, all by herself. Having made one at Claystation, Bangalore last year, she was not going to move without making one. I loved that she was so keen on making. So, today I asked Hemanth to make an idol for us while I helped Putti with her idol. Always make sure that your hands are slightly wet while handling clay.
- First make two balls one bigger which forms the body and the little ball forms the head.
- Make two long coils(snakes) for hands and slightly thicker ones for legs.
- Place the balls one upon another and merge the ends that touch. Attach the legs to the body part and merge them well into the body.
- Now add the hands to the upper body part and merge them well.
Add another coil to the head part to form the trunk. Slightly flatten the free ends of the hands and legs to form palm and feet.
If you want to be more creative, you can opt for four hands and other additions like jewels. Now leave the Ganesha Idol to dry but not in direct sunlight as cracks may appear. After it dries, you can paint eyes, ‘tilak’, eyebrows etc.
