Here is the first kundan rangoli in the series of rearrange-able kundan rangolis that I plan to feature. Let’s get ready to welcome the festive season with these colorful and sparkly floating rangoli designs.
How to make a Rearrangeable Kundan Rangoli on a transparent base:
Now, before we begin our detailed tutorial, I must say that this Rangoli has a simple pattern and has been designed for beginners. So those of you who are looking for more elaborate designs, we will have those types coming over the next few weeks.
Take a thick transparent sheet of plastic. I use OHP sheets for the base because these are easily available in any stationery store. Draw the outline and cut out in the required shape.
I have cut it out in the shape of a square (about 12 X 12 cm in size).
We will need 4 such square pieces of the same size for this rangoli.
Apply a good adhesive and start gluing on the stones along the outline.
Big round kundan stones have been glued on.
A single big gold color bead is glued on at the center.
Around the gold bead, the design at the center is built.
Tear drop or tilak shaped stones…
Smaller orange color teardrops set around…
Small white stones are set at the tip as shown.
Allow the glue to dry. Here is the completed piece.
We make a total of four such pieces following the same steps outlined above.
I made two pieces with red stones and two with magenta stones.
Now for the center piece, this shape is cut out. Since the sheet is transparent, the outline wasn’t seen – so I’ve drawn some black lines on the photo. The design at the center is the same as that of the other pieces.
Leaf like design is made at each corner of the piece.
And now we assemble all the pieces…
The arranged Kundan Rangoli is here.
