Painting Inside Tubelight

Painting inside tubelight was done with a long brush (Which measures 136 cms), on the occasion of Indian Independence Day 50 Years celebrations. Total painting was done from only one side (The other side was closed). It has taken 3 months to finish this fantasy.

Here are the steps

On the request of visitors... Here is the detailed description.
1. Tube light has to be opened on one side carefully.

2. It has to be cleaned inside properly with water and should be dried properly by the time painting starts.

3. This tubelight painted starting from the otherside (which was closed). To do this the brush was attached to a long stick (total length of the brush should be more than the length of the tubelight).

4. Tubelight has to be handled very carefully because it is very delicate than usual bottle.

5. Painting on the other end is the critical part, which gives a lot of pain to fingers(which hold the stick).

6. Letters "INDEPENDENCE DAY GOLDEN JUBILEE" were painted first after that India map.

7. Now comes the Indian leaders. Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Dr. B R Ambedkar, Indira Gandhi and Mother Theressa.

8. And finally the logo of Indian Independence day Golden Jubilee which is in tri color with Ashoka Chakra (with 24 spokes). And it's time for the back ground colour.

9. It has taken 56 hours to complete this in 3 months. This was painted when Ravindra was doing his M.Tech in Tirupati.
