This one looks like thread..zardosi is like spring and cannt be used in machine stitching..i found this look

although it is not clear in the pic, but it looks like zardosi and is mentioned also to be so

hi ,,

thanks for the propmpt reply. but u did zardosi painting in hand right and not in the machine right. ???? as i am in US i donot know what they call here. we do get metallic wires here.???? in silver and gold color. can i use that metalic wire to do this??? let me know....

EC said...

Yes, zardosi is glued to the sheet..but the threads u suggested were used in machine embrodiery..regd metallic wire, i think it would not as thick as zardosi..maybe u can give it a try

Hi EC,

Hi Reshmi,

Lovely work.. very nice..
I have a problem with zardosi thread. Please help me.

I bought a Zardosi work set in a craft shop(includes the spring like thread, glue, the pattern and colors). But I find it very difficult to stick the thread on the given outline. Is it we need to break the threads into very smaller pieces and stick them or you need to twist and turn the thread according to your design. Whenver I try to stick it, it springs back..

Thanks in advance.

EC said...

Thanks Anu..You have to slowly bend the zardosi on the outline ensuring that the spring does not open up..
