The making of the acharya murtis is a procedure that requires several steps:
First, a clay model of the acharya is made based on shastric descriptions and certain known poses that distinguish him from the other acharyas.
Second, a silicone rubber mold is created. Using a custom special home-made spray gun replicating an industrial version, the silicon rubber is applied on the clay murti . Both the silicone and the spray gun were designed by Savyasachi prabhu, a member of the Art Team. His innovations have saved us a considerable amount of money. The plaster is then allowed to dry and the murti is ready for the next step.
Stay tuned for Step 3!!
