Now it is the time to print the Rangoli out and to trace and ink it!
For this I will use:
1. Comix Pad
2. Colour pens (with glitter and aroma!)
3. 2 capillar ink pens.
4. Rangoli Draft, of course
5. Strong light (powerful desk lamp) will be also necessary, because it is difficult to trace the image in poor lighting.
|The Draft is fixed on a Comix pad|
|A new, white list is fixed over Rangoli Draft and the tracing starts.|
|Half of the tracing.|
|The Rangoli is ready!|
One may ask: "Why there is no NAME "SHREE LAKSHMI" on the Rangoli and why the Feet are multicoloured (One is Pink and the Other One is Blue?)"
The answer is simple: "I have decided to write on Rangoli my favourite Mantras from "108 Names of Shreemati Lakshmi-Devi" in Sanskrit!".
You can also make the replacement you cherish:
for example, at first I wanted just to write 2 Mantras of Shreemati Maha-Lakshmi-Devi on the Rangoli, but then I have decided, that Mantras from "108 Names of Shreemati Lakshmi-Devi" would be very suitable for Dipawali!
As for the diverse colour of the Feet, I have decided that one Image must be devoted to Bhagavan Shree Narayana (the Blue One) and the Other Image - to Shreemati Maha Lakshmi-Devi, because Shreemati Lakshmi Devi hates to be without Bhagavan Shree Narayana.
As you see the Feet are of diverse size too, but it is my mistake, as I have made a blunder, while tracing, but I have decided not to correct, being afraid of blurred inking!
