Dear friends this Zardosi painting is my 7 year old daughters work.She had 17 days holidays recently and I really struggled to keep her busy [hence the paucity of my blog posts and blog visits!]
We picked up a Zardosi painting kit [labelled as "Jardosi" on the kit] from a fancy store near my clinic and though I had no prior idea what Zardosi painting was we had fun with our version of Zardosi painting!
Here are the materials we used
Glitter paint and 3 D Glitter glue
Paint brush- to apply the glitter paint
Scissors to cut the Zardosi thread
Glue-should be of good quality so as to stick the rhinestones and Zardosi metal thread
Zardosi thread- we used gold metallic thread

My kiddo used a paint brush and glitter paint in the first step of the Zardosi painting
The kit came with multicolored rhinestones but it was a struggle for my daughter to apply glue to tiny rhinestones so we improvised with rhinestone stickers [so handy while crafting with kids]
I was surprised to see that my little one's hands had got steady enough to handle 3 D glitter glue to highlight the flowers on the Zardosi painting!
The toughest part was actually the " Zardosi" itself! The Zardosi metal thread was spring like and if you pulled it the slightest it would stretch and thin out so it took a lot of effort to glue the Zardosi in place!
We have a Cocker spaniel at home [you can see him here:Paper Flower Tutorial]and it was a big challenge keeping golden doggy hair off the black velvet of our Zardosi painting!
My little one is so proud of her sparkling glittery Zardosi painting and was ecstatic when I promised her we would get it framed!
