How To Do it YourselfHow To Do it Yourself

step 1

Be Cool in Summer !

Take a plain kurti of your choice, I used an off white smart kurti that can be worn on leggings and jeans. Wash the kurti to clean off all dirt and starch so that the colour can easliy grip the fabric.

step 2

Be Cool in Summer !

Draw or trace your design on the kurti. As you may notice the drawing on my kurti is very light, because I normally paint directly without drawing or tracing. Also , i made very light pencil marks so that if some lines go wrong i can easily correct them without making the garment dirty. It is always good to use a white or yellow carbon paper or very light handed pencil drawing when working on light shade clothes.

step 3

Be Cool in Summer !

I started by painting the night sky , using Fevicryl soft acrylic colours and finishing it before moving on to the summer side.

step 4

Be Cool in Summer !

Then I finished up the remaining portion and gave some final touches to my work.

step 5

Be Cool in Summer !

Since the kurti was looking out of balance with only the bottom half painted in a riot or colours, I mixed the colours up till the middle of the kurti and painted some butterflies and symbolic birds.
