Painting in Jaipur
We had the opportunity to visit an art studio where they make there own paints by grinding up stone and adding oils. The father/son business has a number of men that have been training with them since they were children. They use a paintbrush made of squirrel hair and their stroke is so fine that they were able to write each of our names on grains of rice.
