Rangoli is an Indian culture that involves design of different patterns
using sand or fine grained sand pebbles. The Rangoli is usually drawn using a
fine grained type of sand that is usually white in color, called “Rangoli”
itself. However, the Rangoli sand comes in different colors to make the pattern
look more attractive. This type of sand painted design is usually done in all
homes everyday.but however are more widely drawn on national festivals like
Diwali, where the entire country celebrates the festival of lights.

Rangoli is easy to learn, but however requires one to have interest in it,
and a little skill to put the sand in a proper way on the pattern decided upon.
To help you learn this unique art of India, here are a few steps on how to draw
a Rangoli yourself. This will surely be a fun activity to do with children as
well as for women.

The first step to be done is to decide on a pattern of what
to draw as a Rangoli. You can make up any design, anything like a tattoo design
or even a simple floral pattern to start with. Draw the pattern using your
imagination and put it down on a paper so that your mind doesn’t drift away the
pattern while you draw it. After you are done with the pattern decision,
proceed to the next step.

Take a chalk or a washable marker. Most people do not
use this after they learn the knack of drawing Rangoli, but you can use it,
amateur! Wink

Next, take a hand full of semolina or colored sand or white
Rangoli sand to draw the outline of the design. To do this, you have to take
the sand in the palm and cone the palm so that the sand flows from the lower
small opening of the cone of your hand (just like a funnel and water flowing
out of it)

After a little practice, you will be able to exactly
put the lines on the marked patterns in the Rangoli.

When done with this step, proceed with filling the Rangoli
with different colors to make it look more attractive!

Hope you liked the pattern you chose!
