ZARDOSI WORK

In north India , the dressing materials are majorly embellished with stones , bead works , bright art pieces like shells etc. They are always seen with a chain stitch , which is easily done with a zardosi needle and golden or silver colored threads.
For sarees it is a tougher job to make a chain stitch throughout!!!
So , with the zardosi needle in your hand , you can make faster chain stitches with the needle dragged at the top with the thread brought below...............
You can even attach beads , chamkis with that needle!!!!

STAIN GLASS PAINTING-WHERE COLORING MATTERS!!!

Hi friends!!!
Join with me to color the glass piece , where you can draw as usual the outline sketch , and even color it as I have already told you in the stain glass painting!!!.
But what I want to stress here is that , you try those creative hands to merge the colors , that is to combine and mix the colors for "facial shades" . So you could use pink ,white ,orange and put white first , add some pink and mix it for the chubby cheeks...........now your cute face coloring is over!!!
