Paper Mache Handicraft - The Heritage Artifacts

Paper Mache Craft

When you think of paper mache, the images that come to mind are likely more along the lines of an elementary school arts and crafts project than elegant artwork. However, the amazing art of Kashmiri paper mache has been passed down by experts, from generation to generation, for centuries.
There are two important aspects of Kashmiri paper mache- Sakhtsazi and Naqashi. The first step, Sakhtsazi, involves making the foundation of the paper mache figurine or object with the paper pulp, while Naqashi is the final step of painting and decoration.

Common themes that appear on Kashmiri paper mache products include flowers, box patterns, jungle motifs, and Kashmiri symbols like almonds and the chinar, a five-pointed leaf.
