Embossed Warli Painting -1

Made an embossed warli painting recently and was waiting for it to get framed. So it finally reached my hands yesterday night and here it is for your eyes :-) Its my first attempt using embossing method. Idea borrowed from a craft programme telecasted on a TV show very long back. Remembered it one day so decided to try.



Embossed not in metal but in paper. Yes it is easy to make.

You will need :-

  1. Catridge (paper to paint)
  2. Fabric glue
  3. Acrylic colours (Black, burnt sienna, brown)
  4. Gold colour
  5. Thin brush
  6. Flat brush
  7. Toothpick
Procedure :-

  • On the catridge, draw any warli design of your choice. In this painting I drew a tree, birds, people watering the tree.
  • Fill the figures with fabric glue. For the tree bark effect, once the glue is semi dry, using a toothpick scratch the tree to get the bark texture. Let it dry for a day.



First apply a coat of diluted burnt sienna all over using up & down strokes only. No horizontal or criss cross strokes. Use a flat brush for this purpose. Hope the picture below will give you an idea of how it is done.



  • Over this using brown colour - dry brush stroke, apply on the edges downwards, this will give a dark edge and bright centre. Let it dry.
  • Using black colour & thin brush, make edgings in the tree where you need highlight
  • Using gold paint, paint the embossed figure leaving the black highlight. Let it dry and then get it framed.
