Metallic Block Printing in Jaipur

Today was off to another village for metallic block printing.

The huge block printing factory

Blocks for us to choose from

Mobile paint trays  - silver or gold?

I took my own fabric this time as I bought some indigo the day before 
and I love it with silver.

Then onto silver on white fabric under the watchful eye of the master.

I was really surprised how good the silver looked on the white fabric
and my printing was pretty perfect having had lots of practice over the week 
and with the master watching and making subtle corrections. He was such a gem.

The masters work - the best I have seen anywhere. 
Three block printing - three parts to the design with three colours.
