Step 1: The materials required
1. Hair oil (preferably a fairly Translucent one)- I have used Jasmine oil.
2. A paint brush(size 00 to 01) - the brush should have sharp or a chiseled tip.
3. Acrylic colours
4. Super glue
5. Key Ring
6. Here I have used small glass tubes as a container for the rice ; you can use whatever container you can get locally.
8. The rice grain - preferably a longish one
Step 2: Picking the right size
Step 3: Mixing the deired color
Step 4: Applying the paint on the rice
It would be better if you use vertical and horizontal strokes as it would give sharp and crisp strokes and the characters would be legible .
