Perumal Paadham / Balaji's Feet

The story of how I did this craft goes a long way back,,,

I was browsing the net for some pictures of Ganesha (being a big fan of him !!) and ended up getting a whole lot of designs of not only Ganeshas but also the pattern of Balaji/Perumal’s lotus feet.  I took out a print out and safe guarded it amongst my huge collection of designs.  This happened 6/7 years ago and I had completely forgotten about it.

Then of course I did the Ganesha Toran (which you must have all seen) some years after that.  In 2009,  my 2 friends who used to come home everyday one day asked me to teach them some craft since they had enough free time.

Being craft crazy, I offered to teach them something simple to create and hit on the idea of doing Perumal Paadham.  Since I usually have most of the craft materials at home and all these designs, we sat down to go about it.

This is the procedure we followed:
1                     A self adhesive black felt paper was stuck on a cardboard sheet.
2                   Traced the design on the felt paper.
3                   The glitter glue was applied on the outline.
4                   Kundan stones were stuck as jewellery and wherever else we felt it was required.

Both my friends and me were very happy with the result.

I had placed this on the golu padi during Navarathri and you can see the photos when I upload them at a later date.
