How to paint Glass Tanjore Painting

                 Yasoda 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. 


Kindly refer my blog post on Glass Tanjore Painting

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.
