As an extension of colouring mandalas, Dot-to-Doodle Mandalas allows the hobby colourist to create his or her own mandalas before colouring them in. There are two main techniques involved: stippling and colouring. Stippling is the creation of a pattern using varying degrees of solidity or shading with the help of small dots. Dot-to-Doodle Mandalas makes doodling mandalas easy and fun using specially provided guides for patterns. Detailed instructions are included for completing these classically inspired mandalas, before colouring them in.
