New Colour Invented...Never Seen Before...looks out of this world...beyond the reach of RGB shades...nothing on this earth is of that colour...unnatural...pigment made by complex chemical reactions...formula is a biggest secret...many countries are ready to spend huge sum for the formula...thousands of new shades can be created by mixing it with other colours or shades n new hues n nue tints......

How many unseen colours are there in this world?...Who created that colour?...Who was the first in this world to see it?...Why we couldn't see it till date in nature?...Why nothing on this earth is blessed with that colour? any other planet having things of that colour?...Is there any formula to create that colour from available or existing colour shades?...Can it be computerised?...Can it be installed in colour printers?...Can we make it a part of our nature?...Is there any untold story behind it?...Is it a goodluck or a badluck?...Is it a Rocket science, God's gift or a nature's miracle?...Is there any astrology behind it?...Is it really a fresh new colour or a historical re-invention?...Does any historical book having any such similar thing in existace in its unread, unseen, unopened, untold pages?...Or it's just a mythology with no pratical value?...Is this news true or fake?...Factual or a prank?...Can this happen in reality?...Can we really find a new colour in nearfuture?...
Guyz don't be serious...its just an IMAGINARY article by me n nothing else...I just wanted to test my skills of writing n i did it...if u got kind n ignore it...If u enjoyed it, plz copy it n place it on ur wall

When I was in 8th and 9th standard we had drawing competitive [drawing elementary & intermediate] exams of Maharashtra State Government, (India). That time we had some texture drawing techniques in our syllabus. So I learnt some of the techniques from Subodh Narvekar’s Book for Elementary & Intermediate Drawing Exams (Navneet Publications, Maharashtra, India).

The Book is really awesome and is available in almost all stationary and book stores in Maharashtra. Sadly I don’t know about the availability of that book outside Maharashtra.

Following are some techniques out of which some I have learnt from the book and others are my own.

Atching: Apply a thick layer of paint on the paper & create designs using a needle or any pointed thing before the paint dries.
Also Try Night Atching: 1) Draw & color picture with colour pencil 2) Cover whole picture with Black wax crayon 3) Use atching technique on this surface.

Stippling: Give a light wash colour on the paper & let it dry. Meanwhile, make the dark & thick shade of the same colour/ the contrast colour. Dip the brush in the thick paint & make dots close to one another. You can also use two or more colours in shading (like blue & green in this example)

Mosaic: Geometrical shapes close to one another making a pattern.

Gradation: Using different shades of the same colour side by side to make a pattern. Use white to make light shades & black to make dark shades. Don’t use water for lightning of colour.

Spray Painting: Dip the toothbrush in the colour & spray it on paper by rubbing your thumb against the toothbrush on paper.
You can also draw & cut a design on another rough paper & put it on the new paper & then spray on it. After spraying, remove the rough stencil & you will get a plane shape of your design on the paper surrounded by colourful spray dots.

Water Dots: Firstly make thin colours in the colouring palette. Then apply water onto the design on the paper where you want to use this technique. Dip the brush in color & just touch & leave it on the wet design in a second. The dot will automatically expand. Give more of such dots & make a beautiful pattern.

Seed Shaped Mosaic: Using seed like shapes close to one another making a mosaic pattern.

Tile Mosaic: Using Tile like shapes close to one another making a mosaic pattern.

Hatching: Giving strokes to colourful sketch pens making a hatching pattern

Shading: mixing two colours in each other while painting & showing different shades.

Waves: Painting waves to make a pattern.

Dry Brush: Dip a dry brush in a very thick colour & make a pattern by giving strokes to the brush on the paper

Blade Painting: Cut a blade in 6 pieces. Take one piece & dip the slightly curved part in the paint & score it against the design. Repeat it & make a pattern.

Wax pattern: Draw a design on paper with a wax candle & apply water colour on it. The design drawn with the wax candle will remain uncoloured.

Collage: Painting in a collage like pattern.

Try more textures on your own & let me know about your experience through comments

Hey I’m not doing any washing powder add. I’m talking about color stains on paper.

Stains can be used to make an abstract painting.

What you have to do is just make the paper clumsy by stains.

Don’t do this literally. Follow the instructions.


1) Put color/ ink drops on the top border of the paper.
    Hold the paper in both your hands in a standing position & let the colors flow to bottom.
2) Sprinkle some color drops on paper
3) Put a big color drop on paper and blow it from the top of the drop. It will spread like a stain.
4) Dip the toothbrush in color and spray it on the paper by rubbing your thumb on the toothbrush
5) Use some imprint drawing tools like ladyfinger/ tree leaves to print its impressions on paper.
6) Use different colors and make an abstract beautiful.

Here I have made an abstract. Take a look.

Sand can be a good medium of painting
Material required:-
Paper, glue, different colored sands, Varnish (Optional)
Take Rangoli Powder if you want to keep it simple but if you really want to make real & original sand paintings then go for manual collection of sand like
1) Black farm soil,
2) White Chinese/ multani soil/Chalk powder/ Gypsum Crush/ Plaster of Paris,
3) Red Brick powder,
4) Gray cement/ dust
5) Brown muddy soil
1) Draw a picture on paper and keep it simple while doing it for the first time
2) Apply glue evenly on the part to be painted. Do it in part by part
3) Sprinkle the sand on glue and fill the glued part with the sand
4) After it gets dried, remove the excess sand on the paper by gently tapping the paper
5) Complete the painting part by part.
6) Spray mixture of 80% glue & 20% water on the picture to get the sand affixed with paper.
7) Allow some time to dry 
8) Apply varnish if you think it fit.
Here’s my try of sand painting.

I am passionate about making ambigrams from last 7 years, since I was in school. So i'm feeling really pleased to present you with my passion-art-project on AMBIGRAMS

Ambigram is a form of typography where you can read a same/ sometimes different word in two dimensions, usually when rotated through 180*.
Also known as:
Vertical Palindromes (1965),
Designatures (1979),
Inversions (1980)
This art is a blend of Typography, Symmetry & Optical illusions

In spite of visiting online ambigram generators on the net, I was not satisfied because I failed to get all ambigram characters to allow us to easily create words on our own.

So I decided to make it on my own.

Here I present the chart and the method to use it.


All the charectors in the above chart are designed by me & it took me around a month & a lot of hardwork to complete with it.

I know it’s not as perfect as it should be, but you can help to develop or replace the characters with better ones by mailing me your ideas on

*Create your own ambigram

1) Write a word (DHAVAL)

2) Write the same word in reverse order below the 1st word (LAVAHD)
(You can also take the reverse of another word having same no. of alphabets)

3) Make Pairs
(D-L, H-A, A-V, V-A, A-H, L-D)

4) Find the 1st part of the pair in the column & 2nd part in the row
 & note down the Character at the point of intersection (D-L)

5) Do it with all pairs & note all the intersections in the order of pairs.

6) Your ambigram is ready.

Now you can customize & decorate your tattoo using your skills & creativity.

7) Ambigram of ‘Dhaval’ created by using - online ambigram generator

ONLINE RESOURCES FOR AMBIGRAMS is a marvelous site by Mark Hunter which deals with Ambigrams. You can Create & Buy products of Ambigram with your name on FlipScript Ambigram Generator

Ambimatic is the other ambigram generator available on the net

Ambigrams got more popularity after the release of 'Angels & Demons'- An English Movie containing 5 Beautifully Created Ambigrams
1) Illuminati
2) Earth
3) Air
4) Fire
5) Water
Probably all of them were created by World Known Ambigramist John Langdon. & are also remarcable sites for random Ambigram Tatoos.

Ambigrams Revealed: one of the must read book for ambigram lovers by Nikita Prokhorov, Containing hundreds of ambigrams by different ambigramists all around the world

Wordplay is also an importent book on ambigrams by John Langdon.

Lots of blogs are also made on ambigrams

Following is a list of some world known ambigramists whose ambigram artworks are available on web

John Langdon, Cleber Faria, Elwin Gill, Mark Palmer, Nicholas Gilbert, Carl “COSM” Mehling, Seb Lester, NAGFA, Clayton Mabey, Jen Winklepleck, Bastian Pinnenberg, Eugene Uymatiao,Kai Hammond, Alejandro Ayala, Dave Bailey, Cleber Faria, Javier Sanchez Galvan, Brett J.

Warli Painting is a tribal painting art in India

These Paintings are done by Warlis; a tribe in India. These Paintings carry a very basic graphic vocabulary: a circle, a triangle & a square.

Originally Warli paintings are the paintings made by warlis on the walls of their huts,
Using bamboo sticks as a brush,
Wet cow dung as the brown background color of the picture and
Thin rice paste as white color to draw the human, animal or other natural or manmade figures.

However it’s now a globally popular art form from India and many people learn these paintings on paper with normal paint brush & white & brown color.

Following are samples of warli paintings I have made.

I have read this art form many years ago in a kid’s supplement of daily newspaper.

It was named as Abhri Drawing in that article. I searched a lot on internet with this name but couldn’t get anything.

So I don’t know the actual name of this art, but whatever it be, it is marvelous.

After reading the article I immediately tried that and it was a success.

Here are some Abhri patterns that I have made 4 to 5 years ago.

Don’t worry I will explain the process of doing this written in the center of this image in Marathi.

1) Take a flat widespread vessel or a tray filled with water.

2) add some water soluble glue in it [if you have it] or leave this step

3) Sprinkle few drops of oil paint or oil based watercolor in water and let the drops float on
     The surface of water. Don’t steer the colors into the water]

4) Colors will float on water due to oil content

5) In a few seconds, a design like above will be created on the water surface

6) Gently put the paper on water surface [put the drawing side of the page on water]
    And let it be like that for 1-2 minutes

7) Hold two opposite corners of the paper and carefully lift the paper and let it dry completely.

8) Finally you will get a wonderful texture on water imprinted on your paper

9) Use this paper as a base for greeting, origami or for further drawing & gift it to your closer one.

Imprint Drawing is one of the best topics of my interest. It comprises of painting with the impressions of different objects such as onion, ladyfinger, tree leaves, textured cloths like sac/ net etc.

What you have to do is just take an object with which you want to paint, cut it if it’s needful, apply paint to that object and stamp it on the paper. That’s it!!!

You can make Paintings/ Greetings using this Technique or you can also make a texture by repetitive stamping

Following are some examples of imprints that I have tried with different objects.


1)    Ladyfinger
2)    Onion
3)    Fingerprint
4)    Leaf
5)    Flower & Leaves
6)    Rope
7)    Neem Leaves
8)    Leaves
9)    Fingerprint
10)    Leaf
11)    Ladyfinger
12)    Palm & footprints
13)    Coin
14)    Coin
15)    Cloth
16)    Net Cloth
17)    Sac
18)    Thermocol Sheet.

Let me know about more of such imprints from your side. Also send me a design you have made using these techniques in combinations.

Almost everybody reading this article will be aware of this art as we all have experienced Origami from our playschool and nursery days.

Origami is an art of making articles just by folding, cutting, twisting Paper and it has its roots in Japanese culture.

We can use a newspaper, Xerox paper, marble paper, or tinted marble paper for origami art.

There’s nothing quite like the joy you get from transforming a plain square piece of paper into a container, animal, flower etc.

Origami is fun, easy, inexpensive and great to deal with.

Following are the photos of origami articles that I made in 1 day especially for the readers of this blog.

I learnt to make these things in my school days under the subject ‘Work Experience’

How many of you have experienced your childhood hours spent with your spirograph set?

Spirgraph is a trademark of a 1960’s plastic toy which is used to draw intricate curved patterns
(hypotrochoids and epitrochoids) using interlocking plastic wheels and toothed rings of different sizes.

We literally can make countless amazing circular patterns by using this toy.

And believe me, it’s not just a kiddy stuff. Even young & old people also love to spend their time with
spirograph. Some people are just mad for this (including me!!!)

These are some patterns I have made with my old spirograph set bought before 5 years from a local
‘Gadda Jatra Fair’ just for Rs.10/- containing only 2 rings & 5 wheels

Take a look at the Spirograph Collage I have made using the same Spirograph set.

For making this collage, I used a local spirograph set containing only 2 rings [144/96 & 150/105] & 5 wheels [Wheel No. 45, 50, 52, 72 & 80]

I used normal writing colour ball pens (8 shades)

After cutting I glued all the patterns on a reflective surface.

It took me around a week to complete with it on 2-3 hours a day basis.

The Spirograph sets are very common and you can get them from e-business sites like etc.

You can get more stuff about this topic on (A must visit blog by Heather Holm for every Spirograph lover)

Also try Spirographix Version 4.2 by M. Kudlowski (Spirograph Software)

Surf more on the web to get more information on this topic and let me know more about your views and
opinions about this blog.


We draw many pictures & designs as a part of our hobby manually with our hands. But there are also
some drawing machines for making typical designs, graphs & roulette curves.

Geometry Box

Not to mention, we all know using these basic geometric drawing tools like D, compass, ruler, triangles & Pro circle from school days.

Though simple in nature, these equipments have a lot of importance in technical & mathematical drawing/ Diagrams.

The same tool mentioned above.

A trademark of a 1960’s plastic toy which is used to draw intricate curved patterns (hypotrochoids and epitrochoids) using interlocking plastic wheels and toothed rings of different sizes.

Basic version of spirograph by Kenner Toys.

Made for those kids who cant use spirograph


A mechanical apparatus, that employs pendulums to create complex geometric images.

I searched on net but failed to get the simple, understandable & cheapest procedure to make a small sized & portable harmonograph toy


A specific type of harmonograph based on the rotation of two wheels.

It is an instrument which uses rotating disks instead of pendulums to create complex geometric images.


These are the most complex intrinsic roulette curves 

These patterns are used in printing of currency notes, bonds, degree certificates, passports etc to stop forgery. For more information on guilloche, go to (Guilloche Liabrary). It has hundreds if ready to use guilloche patterns and softwares.

Collage is a technique of an art production where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.

It may include magazine and newspaper clippings/ colored patches, ribbons, paint, bits of colored and handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photos and other objects glued to a piece of paper or canvas in a pleasant and decorative way.

Collage Gift: You can make a photo collage of your close one’s photos and give him a surprise on any special occasion like his/ her birthday/ Marriage anniversary or you may also give a photo collage made from the photos of the memorable moments you have spent together to your friend or spouse on friendship day or may be on Valentine’s Day.

You can make handmade collage or digital collage using photo editing software, apps or tools but it will give others great pleasure getting a handmade collage from you. 

Look at the Digital Floral Photo-collage I  made from the photos clicked in Prayag (Allahabad) 
during the holly trip to Shri Sammedshikharji; A Jain Pilgrimage Site in Jharkhand, India.

You also can create such piece of work and spread a sweetest smile on your close one’s face by gifting it to him/ her.

Sunday, 1 November 2015


Period: Jan - Feb 2013

I was going to a holly family trip to Shri Sammedshikharji ; a jain pilgrimage site in Jharkhand ( India ). We traveled about 30 places in the 5 states of India in 20 days.
I had my cousin's camera with me & it was enough to develop a new fad; the fad of photography.

I clicked about 700 photographs during the trip. Some selective of them are arranged in this video.

Must see this video & give comments in the comment box below.

Also mail me snaps that you have taken.

This video is also available on YouTube in a better video quality (1600*1200 Full HD)

Have you ever even thought about using nice, warm, aromatic coffee in your mug to paint a picture?

Coffee painting can make that no other medium can.

The texture of coffee is a challenge. It has more elastic properties than a normal paint. It is stickier when you apply it with brush.

Lets make it together.

Materials Required:-

Instant Coffee Powder
3D Gold Liner (Optional)
Plain Varnish (Optional)

How to do it ?

1) Draw a Picture or a design on paper and outline it with 3D Gold liner

2) Mix Coffee Powder in water in different quantities to get different shades of colors
    (Pale yellow to brown)

3) Color the picture in different shades made with coffee.

4) Once the whole painting dried give on it a plain varnish coating to protect your painting from the dust.

5) That's it, you are ready with a pleasing coffee painting.

Try these & other mediums too & mail me your thoughts about using different mediums for painting.

Let the aroma fill your painting too.

Unlike pencil sketches we can also make sketches using pens ( inkpen/ ballpen)

However, this is not much popular or widely scoped art. Bur for fun, we can definately try it.

Take a look at the ink pen & ball pen painting techniques.

B) Draw a picture by inkpen on wet paper.

C) Make textures by using ball pen linings & techniques like hatching.


1) Dip a thread in ink bottle & place it on paper on witch you have to make a design in one of the given shapes.

Pencil Shading is a subject which is known to almost everyone.

All of us have tried it at least once in our life till now, may be from the day when we learnt to hold the pencil correctly in our tiny hands.

It’s just a technique of using a pencil for drawing as well as painting.

However the question of its simplicity or complexity depends on the skills possessed by the artist.

Here are some techniques for making perfectly textured pencil shading.

Also take a look at the pencil sketches below that I have made for this blog
