As most of you guys are celebrating the Halloween, we in India are celebrating our most awaited festival Diwali. As a part of the celebration each house has a beautiful design in front of the main door. It is called as rangoli and made out of a type of sand which can be colored or white!
Here is a simple dot rangoli pattern i made for this diwali....
Step 1: Preparations
Since there is not much room in front of my door i used a board to make the rangoli. you can directly do it on the floor. the board is made of a ply which is covered with a metal sheet from top.
the second image you see is of a stone named "geru" it is available in indian markets. it is used to color the background and make it even. this gives a nice get up to your rangoli. what you can use as substitute is simple oil paint!
i coated the board with the red color twice to give even finish and waited till it completely dies out.
