a) paper cups
b) cotton buds
c) rangoli colours - various .
This is the pattern we get after removing the paper cups. Place dots or bullets at the joints of the triangular shapes in white and press them gently .
Next using orange rangoli colour , place bullets ( big dots ) inside the gaps at the centre
This is the important step in this rangoli. Using a cotton bud draw curved petals that may also look like the blades of a fan so that the edges meet the small white dots . This will make the rangoli appear very beautiful.
Use of cotton buds to gently curve the petals outward is very essential to enhance the appearance of the rangoli and to take it to a different level.
After completing all the designs , orange bullets are again placed in the gaps outside and they are converted into floral designs , again using cotton buds.
The rangoli after completion is shown in the next image , below. Light diyas along the floral designs outside to decorate for Diwali festival.
