12 to 2 dots rangoli | 12 dot rangoli

A suitable kolam for New Year ,medium sized design that can be filled with beautiful colours.


I have stopped at the white rangoli step .

First place two rows of 12 dots

Then ten to two dots on either side

Marking the edges of the wings on the butterfly wings by connecting the dots makes it easy for us to draw the kolam quickly

Next the thorax of the butterfly ( you guessed it right , I studied Biology !)

The next two images show the creation of the wings by connecting the dots

Next comes the neck and antennae , these are drawn free hand because they form outside the dot pattern.  If required we can have a suitable dot pattern that can accommodate the head and / or antennae also , that will result in a lot of extra dots and we will have to convert them into patterns

The few dots at the centre are converted into a design

Some decorations inside the wings are also welcome !
