Materials required for DIY Thread Painting
Process to make DIY Thread Painting
1 ) Just cut the small pieces of thread or string and keep them aside.
2) Take a paper (I used A4 sheet for this) and fold it into half. You just need to make a mark on paper.
Note : If you want you can use two A4 sheets, in that case you will get two symmetrical paintings.
3) Take a piece of thread/string and dip into the colour bottle, while doing this, do not leave the thread in the bottle just hold the another end of thread.
4) Take the thread out and keep the thread in any shape on one half of paper.
5) Still do not leave one end of thread and fold the another half of paper and gently rub on it. It will create the symmetrical image on the other half of paper.
6) Keep your hand on the paper and pull out the thread.
7) Then open the paper and see the symmetrical images on paper.
8) Keep doing the same, and repeat the process till you cover the whole paper with lots of colourful symmetrical images.
At the end you will see your masterpiece. It is really wonderful to see the symmetrical colourful images on paper.
