Our Rangoli Art

Since we were learning about Diwali, we decided to do some rangoli art. If your not quite sure what Diwali is check our 'Diwali' movie.

First we choose a rangoli pattern to copy, it had to be symmetrical. Then once we had copied it onto our piece of cardboard and coloured it in using bright wax crayons.
Next we used the coloured dye of our choice to cover all the cardboard.
For the last step Miss Walters mixed black indian ink with PVA glue in a bottle so we could go around our pattern.

Watch our movie to see the end product!
