Thanks Michele for appreciating my fingernail embossing. There are millions of artist who do embossing work but very few artist in the world who create embossing with their fingernails. Recently there is an article published on my NakhaChitra calligraphy in "100 New York Calligraphers" by Cynthia Maris Dantzic.

What lovely work you do, Suhas. I think embossing is an amazing art and you are indeed a master at it. lf

Thanks Skip for your great appreciation!

Thanks Catalina for your nice comment!

Extroadinary work Shuhas!

Thanks Skip for appreciating my NakhaChitra art!

Wonderful technique Suhas….well done!

Thanks Angela for appreciating my NakhaChitra.

What an amazing art form, beautiful textures! LF

Fantastic work!!!

That's awesome! :)

I just don't want to keep this tradition alive by myself but I am teaching this NakhaChitra art in New York by taking workshops of "How to create relief art with just by using your fingernails" on paper for kids and young adults.

I love that you include the rich fabric of history with your art. You are doing the world a great service by keeping this tradition alive! :)

Thanks Cassandra for your nice comment. This is an ancient Indian art technique and according to me art started with human fingernails at the beginning of human race. First tool humans ever started creating art and writing is your own fingernails.

These are great! What an interesting technique.
