“The calmness on his face
The peaceful vibe in the Air
Leaves a tranquil trace”
DIY: Buddha 3D craft…..” My Peaceful Inspiration“
Give your wall a new look with the serene and peaceful calmness of Lord Buddha…….
Today, I would share with you my latest DIY creation …… . Let your creative spark within you bloom and give your home a colourful vibe.
For the above craft, all u would need is the following:-
(a) 8-12 mm Plyboard size 2′ x 1.5′
(b) Some old broken floor / wall tiles
(c) Acrylic paint
(d) Broken mirror
(f) Steel / Iron Clips
Let’s get rolling.
Firstly, the ply board needs to be thoroughly cleaned and prepared in case of any holes/voids. Draw an outline sketch of Buddha with stencil or by hand. Place the steel clips on the rear of the Ply board with the help of a drill or screwdriver so that it is easy to hang on the wall …. Note this is the first step, since it will be difficult to place the clips at the end.
Moving on …..
Paint the Buddha sketch with colour of your choice, I preferred to use Acrylic paints …….and paint it Black.
Black expresses the power & strength of Buddha .
After painting the outline , next step is to paint the broken mirror pieces or glass pieces. I chose to paint them in hues of red and orange. LEAVE IT FOR 10 MINUTES TO DRY UP.
Now arrange the broken tile pieces as per size in the form of a mosaic art ………ensure that the surface of ply board is perfectly dry. Use adhesive (i used fevicol here) to paste the tiles on the board as shown in picture……….be careful of the sharp edges of the broken tiles. Use a glove as a precaution.
Next step is to paste or fix the broken mirror pieces for the robe. By now the painted mirrors would be dry, so arrange them in the left over space above.
The colour red and orange signifies the cheerful & happy aura spread by HIS peaceful vibes.
Make sure your entire ply board is covered neatly with tiles & mirror….and very less voids are visible…
Use smaller pieces of the broken mirror to make the robe of Buddha….
The silvery shine from the broken mirror pieces exhibits a ray which exudes a glitter in the air.
