    Buddhist Thangkas are typically made by a single artist, who will first sketch out the design on the canvas. The artist will then use a variety of brushes and paints to create the painting. Thangkas can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to complete.

    The process can be divided into the following steps:

    1.       Preparation of Materials: Thangkas are painted on cotton canvas. The colors that are used are poster color, gold paint, stone color. Also a material to make traditional brocade is chosen.
