- Ladies Finger
- Fabric Paint
Vegetable printing is a simple art that even small children can try out. You need only some vegetables, a piece of cloth and fabric paints to make the print. Vegetables can be cut lengthwise or breadth wise to make beautiful patterns of flowers, leaves, etc. according to your ideas. Here is an example for you.
Take one capsicum and cut it into two pieces. Apply fabric paint of your choice carefully on the brim of the capsicum piece. Take care not to smudge. Punch the painted capsicum on the cloth to make petals of a flower. Cut the ladies finger lengthwise to make leaves and breadth wise to make small flower designs. Punch with the small flower design in the center of the flowers. If you want to make the design more attractive you can punch the small flower designs in the corners of the cloth. Choose contrast colour paints for effect.
