Universally recognized as a symbol of peace, creativity, and inspiration, mandalas are sacred circular shapes. They were originally developed as Hindu and Buddhist symbols of the universe, and the process of their creation is known for reducing stress and helping artists find tranquility and balance.
The mandala image is peaceful, but also complex to create--its circular shape can feature curved or linear lines inside, or art like squares, flowers, an eye, or a sun. The colors of a mandala can be vibrant and uplifting, like yellow, sky blue, and pink, or they can be more calming shades, like deep blue, dark red, and green.
"Mandalas: Coloring for Everyone" simplifies the process of creating mandalas. Its step-by-step instructions provide the steps necessary for all new and experienced artists to create them, and understand what colors go together and why.
This unique compilation has thirty-eight black and white designs for readers to color, and a gallery of inspirational four-color images. The images in Mandalas: Coloring for Everyone are never-before-seen ones, created specifically for it, and are perforated, so readers can remove them to more easily color them--and then frame them or gift them if they'd like.
This volume is made to be successful today and for years to come, and is published in sync with "Mandalas: Coloring for Artists," a follow-up volume with more advanced designs.
