    HI Asha
    your works are all really awesome.. it has got a professional touch. cant believe that its done by a house wife.

    Hi! Lallu82,

    I dont know what else is available in India at the moment.I tried fevicryl metallic colours as well.I bought fevicryl silk colours but did not use it.Wish I could help u with that.I use only cotton cloth which is a lining material for painting.If I get to know anything,will certailnly let u know.

    Regards,

    Asha

    Hi! Ani,

    I wash the fabric and then dry it and start painting.I dont have a frame.The fabric paint is a bit thick and hence use brush or sponge to paint directly on the cloth.

    Regards,

    Asha
