2.Sift soft stone powder (chirodi) and coal powder with a sieve having tiny holes and fill another tin box with powder.
3.Select the colors you required and buy them from the market. Keep them in small plastic containers.
4.Use spoons for white chirodi, colors or coal powders.
5.Before filling the design with color, mix white chirodi or black powder with the required color on a separate piece of paper. Colors bought from the market are very sticky and so cannot be taken in the pinch easily. Add some light color or black powder to make it blackish and coarse. It is easy to fill the design with this coarse color-powder.

Draw square on a suitable place on the floor and make dots inside the square with the help of the dotted paper .Join the dots with lines and you can make beautiful Rangoli designs.
