Rangoli on water surface step by step

 Navarathri , Diwali decorations at home 

The rangoli below uses a technique through which we draw double lines with different colours


Pour water on a clean plate.  Choose the plate size according to the size of the rangoli you need to make.

Use a sieve and add rice flour .  Rice flour ensures that the rangoli stays above water.and it also gives an opaque background so that the design in visible.


The sieve helps us to remove solid particles ( which otherwise we may have to break gently with a pin )

It also helps to spread the rice flour on water evenly.


Draw the rangoli gently on water , it should be similar to how an insect skims on the surface of water.



Drawing small dots on rangoli comes with practice.

Small white dots make the rangoli more beautiful.

If left undisturbed the rangoli stays for a week.  We can use to decorate our homes for Navarathri golu, as a Diwali special rangoli , light lamps around it.
