So, canvas is very strong and very soft. Sketch part done by Tashi lama, which is very important part for each and every thangkas. If sketch is not good proportion, then thangka is not good, so our thangka is different then market thangkas. after sketch start to color where we used natural stone color which we import from Tibet. After color making very thin and soft color lining which also very important. Then used 24 caret gold carving. And face is making end of time, before start to make face have to get permission from high lama which date and time is suitable to open the eyes. Without permission if open the eyes of deities that is not good to used for worships, prey and meditation.
In our school each and every artist are doing meditation almost 15-20 minutes, which are very important to crate compassion and positive energy. Then start to make the thangkas sits on east direction, because direction is also very important to crate the good thangka. If artist sits on wrong direction, when make thangka then it crate negative energy for the users. So, in our school followed all rules and regulation to crate thangka. when people used thangkas it will crate compassion, love, positive vibes.
