    Hi Ashu,

    Thank you!! I havn't personally tried the ohp sheet but I think it might work fine. It took me 2 days to cover the pallu area and 2 days to do the rest of the saree.

    Happy painting!!!!!

    Regards,
    Shobie

    Hai Drishya,
    your drawing and painting is very beautiful. Keep it up. You could do on your salwar also. Nice work.
    I am also from Trivandrum. Where are you put up there?
    You could make this hobby into a business too. Try to learn fabric painting and other ways of painting from a good teacher and this could fetch you good income.

    Drisya,
    you have banned private message from other members. Can I know why? Are you scared and don't feel that it is safe to receive message?
    If you do not have objection, send me a private message with your mail id. We could meet sometime when I come over to Trivandrum.

    Hi Virajitha,

    I usually get the carbon sheets from Michaels craft store. You might also get it in any fabric or scrapbooking stores.It is called Grafite transfer paper and you can also get it in different colors.

    Dear Varalekshmy,

    Thank you so much. After I did that saree I got lot of orders in Kerala but unfortunately as I am in US it was hard for me to commit to any one. When I go to India I just don't like to do anything but just spend every waking minute with my parents......

    Regards,
    Shobhana
