Help Yourself - Make Peacock Rangoli Designs

It's Diwali time and yesterday I happened to see that a lot of people were actually looking out for cool peacock rangoli designs. I did feature some exquisite looking peacock rangoli designs in this post, but here I am going to feature some products which might be useful to you if you are looking forward to creating a peacock design from scratch.

For all those who are non-acquainted with Indian festivals -- Diwali is celebrated between mid-October and November and is popularly termed as 'festival of lights'. Rangoli or 'floor decorations' are popular during this season. You can get more information about Diwali from Wikipedia.

You may use these materials to draw/practice on peacock designs -

1. Peacock Engraving Board - Work on a preprinted design using this board! Pretty easy to use.

2. Peacock Feather Stencil - Reusable peacock feather stencils that can be used on a variety of surfaces -- including your floor surface! You can create an outline for a peacock feather easily using these stencils, and this ought to help you out when you are creating a peacock rangoli design.

3. Design book - Want to draw a peacock design from scratch without the help of any preprinted designs or stencils? 'Draw 50 Birds' can help you out!

The products above are only for amateurs who don't have a clue (like me) on how to create a decent looking peacock design. If you're an expert in drawing, you won't need the above products. Take a look at the following video. Look how the artist creates a beatiful peacock rangoli design -

You can get a Variety of Rangoli Colors from Amazon.

Happy Diwali!
