Kathakali Make-up (Chutti)

Imagine that mud pot is the artist's face!

Kathakali uses one of the most elaborate make-up techniques and costume. It takes hours to finish Kathakali makeup. Kathakali make-up artists have innovated new techniques and modernised some aspects of the same. However, most of the colours used in Kathakali make-up are natural.
Your first lessons will be on a mud pot (instead of someone’s face)
