Madhubani painting

Elo,

Specifications of handmade postcards???

I am learning Madhubani painting and want to try my hand at making my own postcards.

Please help me with the kind of paper and how to make them sturdy.

Thank you.

I use these 300 GSM, 4x6 inch index cards as base.

I’ve never heard of Madhubani painting. Postcrossing is such an education! Just googled it and it looks amazing! What type of paint will you be using? For sending in the post, I agree with @snailmailermk a minimum of 300gsm. Different paints and papers may require sealing to make it waterproof (several ways) Looking forward to seeing you creations!

Thank you for your advice.

I am doing Kachni, which is basically black and white. I am still underconfident.

:grinning:

I am trying a few handmade cards these days, in the Madhubani techniques. I am inspired from Mauritius- my beautiful country.
I am trying my best and have much to improve.

Elo all,

I hope that you are doing well.

I had posted your cards. Did you get them?

I am posting once more, because I have received some cards posted in March 2022 this week.

Hope you like my cards.
Take care.
