Tipke wali rangoli design for Diwali

Tipke wali rangoli with 7 dots step by step

This is a somewhat complicated rangoli design though the dot pattern is only 7 dots.  It is not exactly a 7 dot design the actual dot grid is 7 dots at the centre then 6,7,4,1 on either side.  The images show the steps for the rangoli .  I have added many pics so that it is easy to understand.  This is a very apt rangoli to fill colours.  We can use different or same colours in alternate patterns to get a beautiful rangoli for Diwali decor of our homes.







Tipke wali rangoli with 9 dots step by step

This is a traditional rangoli design using shankh patterns that is drawn regularly for festivals like New Year and Sankranthi.  I wanted to offer something different for Diwali instead of the patterns with lines connected by dots, so this rangoli.

The beauty of the rangoli depends of the way we connect the curved lines of the conch designs through the dots so that we get a near perfect pattern .  The dot grid used is 9 by 5. 


After placing the 9 by 5 dot grid draw a pattern at the centre as shown, this can depend upon our imagination and the pattern we are comfortable with .  The remaining dots are suitable to draw six conch or shank designs.  Connect the dots to get the patterns , this should be done without being too conscious of the fact that we are connecting curved lines through the dots so that we can achieve perfection as humanly possible.  It is preferable to draw all the conch designs from one side to make it a good mental exercise ( visualising and drawing all the patterns sitting or standing on one side ) .  If it is not possible we can draw them moving around also.  Add colours to complete the rangoli

Usually this is the centre design for a bigger rangoli for Sankranti or Pongal !  I have restricted it at this step due to shortage of space for me and also because I am of the opinion the beauty and attraction in a rangoli does not depend only on the size of the design.
