Another Mehndi Inspired Mandala Tutorial

For this tutorial I'm using:

 Using the STABILO Pen 68 Mini or any water based felt tip pen, start your mandala in the center, and work outwards. I don't use a compass or any template.

Now, using the ZIG-Watercolor BrusH20 Detailer, go carefully over the outline of each shape you want to color, try not to go outside the line otherwise the ink will spread where the paper is wet. You can leave some white uncolored shapes.

When your mandala is completely dry use the
Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 334 to draw the details and tidy up the borders.

For more detail step-by-step instructions of how to draw a Mehndi Inspired Mandala have a look at this post here. There you'll find a sheet with some forms you can use for your mandala.


  1. I was wondering if we could do this with the staedtlers for the non-waterproof part! Hmmm...may have to experiment as I don't have anything but Tombows. Thank you again SO MUCH for sharing these tutorials with us! They are beautiful! And you are sweet! ♥

    1. Thank you!! Minerva, I'm pretty sure the Tombows are water based so they should work perfectly fine for this.
