A pack of Ganjifa cards was used in the olden days to play a normal game of cards. The Kings back then were great patrons of art and would get their personal deck hand-painted by local artisans. The cards were thus very artistic, were bright and colorful with subjects of mythological significance, and were embellished with gold and stones.
Come and explore a bygone era by painting a card in the Ganjifa style of art. You get to learn a painting technique that involves a lot of techniques like decoupage, gilding, and painting, in the traditional way.
