Screen printing on a silk saree

I've used screen printing to make over ,many old sarees. This is a new silk saree, on which I used screen printing.

This is my sister's saree. When I saw this saree, I liked it very much . Some creative idea flashed in my mind.When I told her about my idea, her first reaction was big "Noooooo!". :-) Expected! Because already I had spoilt two sarees of her.:-) I begged in front of her, but she was reluctant. I promised her that if I spoil this saree, I would buy her two srees. Then unwillingly, she gave this saree. Still she had doubts!

While printing on this saree, I took utmost care, as if its saree of any Goddess and if its spoilt I would  be cursed by the Goddess :-) 
The result is below :

I used one of my favourite Peacock motifs. I have already used this motif to design a dress. In between printed peacock feather motif designs.

And on the Pallu again Peacock feather motif design.

Here is the closer look of the peacock motif

My sister is happy to see this. She is planning to add some Kundans on this. She tried to find out mistakes, so that she could get two sarees from me. But could not :-)

Designing a "Tie and Dye" saree with lace and embroidered motifs. Hope will be completed by next weekend. share that in the coming post,

Till then,

Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,

  2. This is BEAUTIFUL! The peacock motif is so complex that it looks like embroidery, not screen printing. Very impressive, and gorgeous!
