Lippan Work (Mirror work)

I love lippan work and always wanted to do it 🙂 One day I got quick dry clay, mirrors and did it on the regular canvas 🙂 

Lippan Work : Mud and Mirror Work (also known as Lippan Kaam) is a traditional mural craft of Kutch, Gujarat, India. Lippan or mud-washing using materials locally available in the region like mixture of clay and camel dung keeps the interiors of the houses cool.

The process takes lots of patience and precision. You need to roll the clay and keep sticking mirrors and rolled clay according to the way you like.
