There are various types of thanka utilizing different canvases. Nonetheless, most are painted on material or paper. The white fabric is first mounted on an edge and water-based colloid chalk is applied to the surface. It is cleaned with powder when dried. The canvas is consequently prepared for painting. Aside from this, there are thanka which are networks of weaving, woven silk, silk embroidered artwork or appliqué. Weaved thankas are finished with multi-hued silk strings. Silk woven thanka accept the twist of brocade as the base and applies the strategy for jacquard weaving with hued silk strings as the weft. With appliqué thanka, human figures, plans and examples are removed of shaded silk and stuck onto the canvas. The subsequent work is additionally called "embellished weaving." Tapestry thanka are woven with the strategy for "complete twists and broken wefts: which requires the utilization of the weft strings on the twist just where the image or plan needs it. The "emptied out" work creates a three-dimensional impact. Embroidered artwork thanka are thick, firmly woven, gently planned and perfectly enlivened with shaded silk strings.
