How to Draw Mandala Art?

A mandala is a symmetrical circular pattern design. An array of shapes, lines and repetitive patterns emanate from the center of the circle. But are you tired of drawing ordinary mandalas? Here are some variations that boost your creativity! 

Pick a point on the paper. Start with drawing circles in pencils. EXLICON is a compass which does not perforate paper and at the same time not deviating from the centre. No marks left! Place the EXLICON base on the paper. Draw a series of circles which touch each other on the side. 

Draw a star in the middle of the inner circle. Make use of the markings on the circular base. Follow the instruction manual and use EXLICON to draw five dots on the edge of the circle. Connect the dots with the long wing ruler and form a star.

Make use of the water drop wing to add other elements to the mandala. 

You can draw circles even without the circular base. The long and short wings contain a set of holes at different distances. Fix the position of the short wing by putting a pencil in a hole and you can draw circles as small as 20 mm radius.

Design your own pattern. Repeat the patterns to fill the star. Be creative! Make best use of EXLICON tool set.

We can draw some repetitive patterns and design our own mandala. Start from the centre, connect the dots with straight lines, curved lines, circles, raindrops etc. The shape can be in different sizes. You can draw perfect curves with the EXLICON water drop wing. You can also add some golden ratio geometric features to your mandala with our EXLICON. Replicate the patterns until it fills the circle. Fill up all the empty space.

If you draw your pattern in a pencil, you can trace the lines with a pen. Then erase the circles and axes.

You can color mandalas with crayons, pencils or watercolor.  

EXLICON is made of either aerospace aluminium or stainless steel. Both materials are strong and durable which allow you to use it for a long period of time. Aerospace aluminium is lighter in weight, which enables you to easily carry around. Stainless steel is a bit heavier, but much more durable. Stainless steel models can be used for an even longer period of time.

EXLICON is made by CNC machining, which ensures the accuracy of the markings. It is an all-in-one drawing tool which is perfect for beginners. It helps you a great deal to draw mandalas. Worry no more in drawing circles and curved lines! EXLICON is now on ‘Indiegogo’
