Turquoise clay hamsa with a template

Paper quilling isn't my only passion. I also like making Hamsa wall hangings (Chamsa, Chamsah). Here's a brand new one. I wrote about making these decorations in a number of posts, for example here is a short tutorial.

The modeling of this hamsa (that is without firing and painting) took me three hours, which I consider quite a lot for this kind of artwork. I decorated it with beads and pearl paint. It's approximately 6 3/4'' (17cm) long.

I'm attaching here a template you can use to create a similar hamsa in case you decide to give it a try. The image is large enough so that you can scale it when printing.
