mural is any piece of artwork painted or applied directly on a wall, ceiling or other large permanent surface. Here I have tried this on a Kerala saree.  

You need to trace the picture to the cloth. You can select the pictures of God , Peacock , Floral designs etc. 
You can use Fabric paint for this.

Chikankari Work

Chikankari work is originated in  Lucknow. Chikankari is a delicate and artfully done hand embroidery on different types of  of textile fabric like muslin, silk, chiffon, organza, net etc. White thread is embroidered on cool, pastel shades of light muslin and cotton garments.Recently chikan embroidery is also done with coloured and silk threads in different colours to meet the recent fashion trends and keep chikankari trendy with fashion.
Chikan work is done from the wrong side of the fabric and the design is rendered in the herringbone style. The shadow of the thread is seen through the cloth on the right side.
