Mandala is a circular geometric pattern. Drawing and coloring mandalas help you to calm down and relax. Some people find it a way to meditate.
How to draw a Mandala?
Pick a centre point in the middle of the paper. Start with drawing concentric circles in pencils on the paper. 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 from the centre with various distances between them.
Draw lines with an angle. Don’t bother to get a protractor? No worries. Just move the long wing around the EXLICON circular base and draw a series of dots with different angles on the circles. The EXLICON circular base is marked with clear and distant angle markers. Worry no more about the accuracy. Connect the dots with the long wing. These axes make your mandala more symmetrical.
Now, we have drawn the basic outline of the mandala. 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. Be creative! Make best use of EXLICON tool set. 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’
