Like the other set, these are from Mary Robertson's Mandalas: 50 Hand Drawn Illustrations.

And I'm still not caught up to the latest ones. o_O

I like it! I like the little ones too. You could trace it and put it on shrinky dinks and have ornaments.

They'd be great for any sunny window or a porch.

I love experimenting with various markers or pencils for coloring mandalas or fractals.

I think I'd need to put them on clear acetate to get that effect the best.

Oh but imagine what they would look like in actual stained glass! My next door neighbour a very long time ago made stained glass lampshades. They were completely gorgeous. I don't know anyone anymore who does that kind of work though, and it would probably be really expensive. :(

You should post some of your experiments. I've been very boring so far and only used coloured pencils.

They're beautiful.

Hey that's true, they'd come out very fancy on Shrinky Dinks. I'm not sure if we have any of that stuff around anymore, but if I ever start making my own designs instead of using the ones in the book, it might be worth a shot.

oh oh oh so pretty! I like the colours too! Especially the spirally-wave one, with a fire in the middle.

When I showed that one to Wolf, he said "I name it A Tiroth At Sea". :D

It's a word from Karn for people who can turn into monkey creatures. I should draw them sometime. They're really cool.
