Rogan painting is a unique craft and practiced by very few families. Rogan painting involves the use of a thick paste which is prepared by boiling the oil of safflower, caster or linseed and pouring it into water. This paste is mixed with chalk colour pigment and a binding agent to form a thick die. The painting on the cloth is done using a stick rod or a metal block. Geometric and floral designs are the norm. Red, blue and yellow are the usual colours that are employed.
Rogan painting is used for decorating wall hangings, table-cloth, curtains, sarees and skirt borders.
