Thank you very much buyer from Minoa, New York for purchasing my NakhaChitra greeting card.

Beautiful image -- I'd love to know more about how it's made! L/F

Thanks Lori for your nice comment and showing interest in my NakhaChitra. This art is an ancient Indian art called "Nakhchitrkala" and there are very few artist in the world who practice this art. I don't use any artist tools or hand press to make relief but just my fingernails. I usually use 1 ply or 2 ply Strathmore kid white paper because I can create very detail line artwork and with the 2 ply paper I can make paper more relief beacause of it's thickness. On May 7, 2016 I gave NakhaChitra workshop in College of Staten Island in New York to teach students how to create relief art with their own fingernails. In 2015 article on my "Nakhachitra Calligraphy" published in the "100 New York Calligraphers" written by Cynthia Maris Dantzic.
