Eco-friendly Clay Ganesh Idol with Riya Nakhro

Eco friendly clay ganesha

Shadu clay or Maati has eliminated the use of POP ( Plaster Of Paris). It is fine sedimentary clay which is eco-friendly. 100% Natural, water soluble clay, reusable, mouldable, easy to use and kid-friendly make it a popular choice for making sculptures, pottery and clay moulding. Ganesh Chaturthi and Durga Puja are major festivals when you will see idols of Shadu clay.
