Ceramic Mural – DIY Painting Tutorial

Last month I had some interior work at home. As usual there were some leftover wooden pieces and white cement. I had heard about ceramic Mural and thought to give a try. Here is how I made it.

Materials used for Ceramic Mural

  • Wooden Piece (Desired size).
  • White cement.
  • Fevicol (Adhesive).
  • Faber Castle Metallic Color (Gold, Copper, Bronze color).
  • Copper color outliner (optional).
  • Ganesh idol (You can choose any idol).

Step By Step Procedure for Ceramic Mural

Mix white cement and Fevicol. Make a thick paste and apply all over wooden board. Let it dry for 5-10 minutes and make some desired texture with help of pen/pencil or any thick stick.

  • I had started with the corner of wooden piece, had given curve texture then zigzag with help of pen. In the middle I had given this texture with the help of paint brush. Let it dry for overnight.


  • Make dough from white cement and fevicol.
  • I had made rose flower, petals and few buds out of dough.
  • Let it dry for at least 24 hours or till it becomes hard.


  • Arrange and stick this flower with help of fevicol on corner of frame and color it with metallic Bronze, Gold and Copper color. I had highlight zigzag texture with help of copper color outliner as shown below.painting-ceramic-mural-diy
  • In the middle of the frame I had stick Ganesh idol (bought from the gift shop).
  • Let it dry till it completely sticks.
  • Finally I had stick thread around a frame (it’s optional).

Here’s your wonderful Ganesh Ceramic Mural :)
