Procedure for Fabric painting
Take a cotton cloth and remove starch and dry it for 1 day.
After that iron it neatly.
Now draw a design of your choice on the cloth to be painted.
For painting, I use fevicryl colors for durability and flexibility. Brushes that I use are generally numbers 000, 2 and 5.
For flowers I have used no.5 brush so that at a single stroke, I can complete the flower petals.
For filling leaves I used brush no. 2, and for lines, I used brush no. 000.
After completing the painting, keep it aside for 2 days and then iron on the reverse side of the painted design.
For more attractiveness of the design, stick “kundans” (stones) with the help of fabric glue.
Keep it aside again for 2 days, and then iron it on the reverse side again.
Take care to wash these painted dresses with hand only.
