    Hi Asha,
    Sorry to bother you.
    when i use the paint ( fevicryl colors ) directly, after drying it is having a stiff texture.( when u touch u can feel it is thick.) Will it be like this or a printed effect? How to get the darker colors?
    waiting for your valuable reply.

    Hi! VK,

    First of all I must thank you for ur appreciation of my paintings.All I can say is that you need to use cotton cloth(curtain lining material-we call it Calico here) previously washed.Then when you paint on it and let it dry completely,reverse iron it for 10 mins with hot iron(charcoal iron) in India I guess it's a little less time.Apply paint thinly-DONT APPLY THICK LAYER.Yes it could be a bit stiff.That's the time when the painting looks even more brighter-that has been my experience with fevicryl.Do try it out and maybe when I go to India,I'll try with the Indian climate.I bring fevicryl from India and do it here in Malawi.Pl do try it out and let me know ur experience.Keep in touch-Asha
