{3 Comments}

What comes to your mind after hearing the word rangoli, I think it would be something with beautiful colors. And yes when different shapes are filled with different colors it is known to be rangoli.

RANGOLI – A pattern made of different colors and shapes in a symmetrical manner. Rangoli plays a very crucial role in Indian tradition. Sometimes different shapes, colors define different rituals on Indian culture. It is also known as a good luck charm at different stages. Some people make it on special occasions or festivals. Rangolis can be vivid, three-dimensional art complete with shadings or they can be the traditional plain, yet as beautiful as, two-dimensional designs. Oil lamps (diyas) would be placed in the rangoli to give it yet another dimension. Using colors creatively can turn a simple design into beautiful design. After all it is a creative expression of art through the use of color. Various competitions are held in various schools, collages every year.

In this article, you’ll be seeing more than 100 of beautiful rangoli designs. I know you are going to try some of these. But before moving to making designs you should how to start it, because safe starting leads to safe ending.

Some important tips before starting Rangoli:

# Choose a design that you want to draw. You may find designs from books and magazines or you may try to create your own design. Rangoli designs are symmetrical in nature and geometric in shape. If you want to try out a design of your own, first draw it on a piece of paper and fill in the design with colored sketch pens to get an idea about how the rangoli will look.

# Wipe the floor (where you want to create the rangoli) with a wet cloth and wait for the area to dry.

#  With a piece of chalk, first draw the outline of the rangoli design.

#  Draw the Rangoli at a spot where you do not expect visitors to walk often else they may end up treading on the Rangoli. For example keep it at the side of The doorstep and not straight outside it. Do not keep it right outside the entrance to the elevator on your floor. Also keep the Rangoli out of reach from dogs and other pets as they may unintentionally spoil it.

#  Now it’s time to fill in the outline with rangoli powder, the most challenging part of the whole exercise. Pick up some powder with your thumb and index finger and fill in the design by rubbing the two fingers together and sprinkling the powder on the floor. Take care to sprinkle the powder carefully; don’t let powders of two different colors merge with each other.

#  Start from the centre and move outwards.

#  You can use traditional colors like flour of rice and dal. But easily available colors like gulal, kumkum or even poster colors can be used.

#  You may create spaces within the rangoli design to place diyas. You could also use flower petals of different colors (golden marigolds, bright red roses) to add that extra dimension to your design.

#  With a little bit of imagination, a dash of aesthetic sense and dollops of patience, you can create a piece of art.

#  Make a stencil and use it to make harmonious patterns.

#  Around the Rangoli, you may keep Diyas (Lamps) for lighting and as a symbol of Light on the night where there is no moon.

#  Rangolis may be drawn on every day of the festival or the same one may be used.

 

Mediums for Rangoli:

#  Rangoli can be done in any design, and any color, be it white or any pleasing combination from colored saw dust or different colored pulses and spices or colored rice or petals of different flowers. Decorate the entrance of your house, along the pathway, around the food display, at the place of worship.

#  Traditionally, rice flour/ wheat flour, kumkum and haldi are used at the place of worship. They are considered auspicious.

#  Raw rice is also soaked for an hour and then ground to a thin fine paste. Using a wad of cloth soaked in the paste and adjusted along the ring finger, designs are drawn. On drying the white line designs look very nice. A dash of color can be added if desired, with kumkum and haldi.

#  For a quick job, moulds are available and so is fine white stone powder. Just fill the mould and roll it on the surface to get a lovely intricate design in white.

#  You can also color rice at home using food colors.

#  Rose petals, marigold petals, small purple paper flowers, finely cut greens-grass/ leaves-even methi leaves…just fill up the large designs. Use strings of marigold and if you like strings of kanakambara/ jasmine flowers to outline. And add diyas to any design that you make for the soft sparkle.

#  Special floating candles are also available in the market. Float them in Urlis (big containers of water) along with flower petals.
