Hi guys.

I'm trying out a new hobby. I've been wanting to color mandalas a few years ago but never got into it and I always seem to keep distracted. I decided may be its time. :googly:

It's never easy starting something new and follow thru on deadlines especially when you have that perfectionist mindset of not doing it right the first time. But once I got started I didn't even bother with all smudges I made. I'm happy to see the finish product and don't even notice all those minor mistakes. :bow:

Having to actually finish something makes you feel accomplished and productive. :twisted:

I think everyone should try it. It's meditative and relaxing at the same time. :mudkip:

Thanks Usagi-Fifth-Doctor. :keke:

Will post more and hopefully others can try too. :googly:

By the way, the one I bought was entitled Creative Coloring Mandalas by Valentina Harper. :chibichibi:

I was surprised how expensive coloring mandalas are. I thought they'll cost around one or two US dollars like those preschool coloring books but they actually cost 10 times more. What I'm using to paint are coloring pencils. And again I didn't realize how inflation can make something like coloring pencils increase the price by 5 to 10 times in just a decade or two. :ohmy:

The only "mandala" I knew about until today is one Rei was using for her special attack. Is coloring mandalas some new trend these days? ^_^'

It is said that while coloring mandalas, you should choose the colors intuitively. Each color has a meaning (for example, black is associated with mystery and individuality). By the time that you finish coloring the mandala, the mandala will reflect your current mood, feelings, and, perhaps, how the universe views you as as individual.

That sounds like some higher/otherworldly beings influence how one colors the mandalas. lol

Not really. ^_^'

Posting it on facebook will only get you likes at most. :innocent:

My first mandala post got me a staggering 40+ likes. On my second post on facebook there were no replies anymore and had fewer likes.

Millenials are unassertive and lazy these days. :googly:

I'm actually making my 3rd mandala sort of chaotic but still having some sort of pattern and somewhat assymetrical. It's going to be an organized mess. ^_^

That sounds exactly like how the universe itself is organized. :lol:

Yeah, I have bunch of colouring adult books from my friend. It's basically a relaxing method to keep your mind at ease. It's very popular in using in art classes.

Color it with burning colors? :P

I feel like doing that would stress me out. I don't even like coloring my own drawings.

It requires concentration which can be draining. So I have to like go back and forth 3 or 4 times to go on a break or do something else. That's what great about art in general if its just a hobby. No need to rush.


This one I made it slightly disorganize but still turned up great even when I use burning or hot colors.

I do find ocean and coral colors relaxing.

Well, these look nice. Try not to burn them if you don't wanna risk getting Rei ticked off.

Those both look nice! But if relaxation is the point, the sea coral is definitely better at that, lol.
