“Brocade” is my new obsession. The brown/black/gold design pictured was the first try, and the original design started as a stencil. I drew the stencil on the wood and then just played around with dot mandala elements to fill the spaces, and then watched it evolve! It was WILDLY satisfying and has led to all kinds of fun creations! In this pattern bundle, I will go over the main original design, plus show you the modifications I made to shrink it down for a keychain, and to round it off for an ornament.
These designs can work well on a surface of any size or material. If the surface that you’re painting on is a different size from mine, you may wish to change the tool sizes used in each design. This pattern bundle includes 3 different sized dot mandalas - a 3.5" wood square, a 2 5/8" round wood ornament cutout, and a 1.5" square (keychain).
Use this pattern to make beautiful things for yourself, to give as gifts, or even on items you wish to sell. Fill your boots! On a totally selfish side, I’d love it if you would tag me (@mandalaloveaffair on all platforms).

In this 16 page PDF, I will walk you through basic dot mandala pattern elements, prepping your paints and painting surface, drawing your guidelines, each step of these designs, fixes & touch ups, and finishing/sealing your masterpiece. I hope the tips and tricks I share along the way, coupled with the colour photos of each step, guide you through creating this mandala as joyfully as possible!
