    hi drisya,

    i get a blank stenciling sheet here in the craft store which is made of plastic. once i draw the design on it (with a marker pen) i cut it using wood burning tool which again I get here. if you don't have that you can use an Xato knife or a hobby knife with a sharp tip. It is a little hard to do with the knife but with a wood burning tool it is very simple, it melts the plastic, but at the same time a little practice to use the tool helps. Not sure if you get it in Kerala. sending a picture of the tool. hope that helps. My picture is shown with different tips which i use for my wood burning projects.

    regards,
    shobie

    Hi nithya,

    Thank u so much for your kind words. The saree was just a plain Kerala saree (cotton) with a little zari work (called Kasavu saree in Kerala) My SIL found it too plain so I initiated the stencil work. I am sending you the design which I used but not in that particular order you see stenciled on the saree. i have also shown the color i choose. I have been searching for the stencil the whole day but in vain. hope this helps. meantime if i find the stencil i will share it with you. happy painting!!!!!!!

    regards,
    shobie
