The magnificent peacock is the National bird of India. It symbolizes grace, pride and beauty. These birds are heavily protected in our nation and the peacocks play an important role in Indian mythology, folklore and in design. The peacock design is heavily used in our fashion. And this is a perfect, fun activity to teach yourself about the nitty gritties of woodblock painting. Also, it’s a great de-stressing activity! You could completely lose yourself in designing this dupatta and forget about all your worries.
Using this crafty DIY Block Printing Kit, paint the Peacock design that is carved onto the sheesham wood block with the provided red acrylic paint - or any acrylic paint of your own, if you want to create a colourful decoration. Firmly press the painted wood block onto the dupatta and carefully repeat the process if you feel like the colour hasn’t been transferred on to the fabric. Once you get the hang of it, you can go ahead and create block printings of your own accord on other garments, gift cards, bookmarks, etc. and gift it to your friends and family.
