The Rogan painting craft is more than 100 years old. Hand-pounded castor oil is turned into a paste by boiling, later coloured powder diluted in water is mixed with the castor oil. The paste of yellow, red, blue, green, black and orange are kept in earthen pots with water to stop the paste drying. An iron rod, flat at both ends, is used to paint half of the design with the support of lefthand fingers, from the bottom of the cloth then is impression is transferred on to the other half portion of the cloth. Cushion covers, bed spreads, petticoats, kurtas, curtains, table cloth, wall hangings are painted with this technique. generally geometrical motifs are preferred. sometimes floral motifs are also adopted. Only 3 craftsmen of Nirona village use this technique
