In TULIRTANE wall hanging Patachitra, the process of making Patachitra involves a few steps which are carried out by the Patachitra artists with immense care and passion. In TULIRTANE the artists make outlines directly with the brush on the paper. We don’t use pencil or charcoal for the preliminary drawings. Then we fill the spaces with appropriate colours. After painting, a layer of recycled soft fabric is pasted on the reverse side of the paper to make the scroll stronger and long-lasting. Then it is dried in sunlight. One of the distinct features of Patachitra is the use of natural colour made by the Patuas from locally available sources like leaves, vegetables, stones and flowers etc. The pats are also marked by minimal background decoration and usage of colour. After drawing the main pat with a thin black border, it is filled with colours. In TULIRTANE we use natural, herbal or organic colours. But some use artificial colours available in the market.  As the base material, we use paper easily available in the market. Especially, full scape or chart paper is used.

RED – New leaves of the teak tree, Betel Leaf, Annatto fruit, Catechu
