As Ganesh chathurthi is approaching, how nice it would be to make our own Ganesha Idol at home and showing our creativity. So this year, I made an attempt although I am only a novice and not a professional in this art. But i realized that it it is not all that difficult as i assumed in the beginning and i succeeded in making Vinayagar or pillaiyar to my satisfaction.

Keep your hands dry before smoothening. Just wet your fingersand stroke gently on the idol to remove any cracks or finger prints.
