It is important to figure out where you are going to draw the Rangoli design. This can be decided according to the size of the Rangoli you have chosen. There are two options:

v  First,you can draw it on the ground if, there is enough space in your home and it does not disturbs your walk way.

v  Second option is that you can make it on a cardboard with a black paper glued over the cardboard. The bright and vibrant colours of your Rangoli design will be more prominently and beautifully visible on the black paper.

Step 4: Draw the outline of the Design with a chalk (if making on the ground) and with a pencil if making on to the cardboard.

It will be better if you can practice the Rangoli design on a white paper till you get well-acquainted with it and confident enough that you can easily draw it on the ground.Alternatively, if you are planning to make the design on a black paper, you can practice the same on to the black paper before Diwali.

Step 5: Use Chalk if you are drawing it on to the Floor

If you are making the Rangoli design on to the floor then you will definitely need to draw the outlining using a chalk. Take a white chalk and draw the basic outlining with the help of a light white chalk so that at the end, there isn't any confusion.

Step 6: Thicken the complete Rangoli Design Outline with Chalk

Thicken the Rangoli outline with chalk as this will give finished look to the design and will look completely beautiful. Though, experts may skip this step but for beginners it is important as it gives clarity of the design. It has already been drawn; you just need to  darken this outline with one more layer of chalk. In addition to that, using white colour also is symbol of peace and purity!!

Step 7:  If you are using a Black Paper then you need to create an adhesive surface

If it is being done on a black paper then you will need a surface where the Rangoli colours can stick to! You can use some cooking oil for this. Don't dip the entire paper into the cooking oil, just take a small amount of it on tip of your fingers and apply it allover the chalk outline. Repeat the same onto the inner layer of the chalk outlining.

Step 8: To the outlining add white textured material

To give dimension to the outlining of your Rangoli, pour in white textured material on to the  outlining. For this, it is better if you can use natural material like sand or rice. It is better to make a cone with the help of newspaper making a narrow hole at the tip of it. With this cone, pour in the white textured material onto the chalk outlining. Use your fingers as stopper to control the flow!
