Contemporary Warli on a vase...

Lately I have come across some pics of Warli painting on vases, totally fell in love with the colors and composition. This one I made as a gift to one of our friends.

I bought the vase from Joann fabrics and used Martha Stewart stencil tape to make lines, I have never used the tape before,so was a little concerned on how it would turn out, thankfully there was no adhesive residue
and the lines have come out really clean.

Wait a couple of seconds after you apply the paint and then peel off the tape slowly, hola! perfect lines.I used normal acrylic paints from Michaels.
I would suggest sanding the vase a little as the surface is really smooth an not very absorbing, after finishing the whole painting I sadly realized that the paint can be easily scratched off from the vase, a little sanding might make the surface more absorbing, but I must say, I love the way it has turned out.

As Warli is a folk art I was not really careful while doing the painting, I feel the beauty in this particular art form lies not only in the simplicity and form but also in the crude style.
