Here is a simple dot rangoli pattern i made for this diwali....
Step 1: Preparations
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.
Step 2: Dots
i used 15 rows and 15 colums of dots for this design.
Step 3: Pattern
Step 4: Colors
finally i added some glitter powder over it.
