100 days of mandalas mixed media mandalas mandala art classHi everyone, welcome to my series on creating Mixed Media Mandalas over a 100 days. If you are just finding these posts, information can be found over here – 100 days of Mandalas. 🙂

Day 12 of 100 days of mandalas


  • Basic compass, pencil and eraser
  • 150-300 gram watercolor/sketchbook paper. I use Canson (if you are adding alot of paint/water, the heavier the better)
  • Pilot V ball 0.5 black pen. You can use lots of different pens, but these are my favourite at the moment.
  • A basic set of watercolor paints (in a tube), water, paintbrushes.

I started off by creating a watercolor burst which would be my background. I used a gorgeous purple and green left over in my palette. Once that was dry, I started to draw freehand using a 5-point design inspired by one of my succulents on my balcony.
