Welcome to Life of Colour

Thank you so much for purchasing our special Mandala Painting Kit.

We hope that this is the start of a beautiful and rewarding journey of creating and colour. If you are already on your journey and this is just a little stop-over in our colourful village - welcome, we are so glad to have you with us.

Life of Colour is all about spreading colour, creativity and joy. We believe
that everyone is creative, and just need the right tools to easily tap into that creativity. That is why we have created top quality, portable and mess-free paint pens and surfaces so we can equip you with everything you need to live a creative life.

Box content and Tips

This box contains 1 (or 3 if you got the bundle) Mandala Board made out of Australian MDF and
16 Floral Acrylic Brush Tip paint pens. You will see that paint pens are much easier, and more relaxing to work with than paint out of tubes, paintbrushes and jars of water!

The best part is, once this mandala is complete you will be able to use
them on many other art projects on different surfaces. (At the
bottom of this page we will show you some of these ideas)

Each completed Mandala has been created using our Floral Brush Tip Acrylic paint pens. We have provided a colour-by-number type guide so you can end up with the same finished product. Simply find the pen that matches the colour on the guide. Alternatively, use the Florals for your own vibrant, colourful combination.

  • Swatching the colours on paper before will help you find the colours easily.
  • Start in the middle and work your way out.
  • Do a double layer of paint to make your colours more opaque.
  • Dark colours will cover lighter colours if you make a mistake.
  • Blending is possible, blend colours into each other using your finger when paint is wet.
  • You can add extra detail on top of your colours such as dots, stars etc if you desire.
  • Or simply follow along with our 3 colour-ways below and have a blast!

Colour by number option

If you want to follow along with one of our colour combinations, simply match the colours here with the pens provided. Use the above images as a guide. Click the + on the image to zoom in to see the numbers well.

Why a Mandala?

Mandala is a Sanskrit word, simply meaning circle.

The circle represents nature with all its circular and organic shapes such as the planets, the sun, moon, flowers, the spiral of the Milky Way. Mandalas are believed to connect us to this natural world and represent the cycle of life.

Mandalas generally have one centered circular point, from which emanates a variety of different shapes, forms and symbols. They can be comprised of both geometric and organic shapes. In its essence, a mandala represents the connection between our inner self and the outer world.

The purpose of Mandalas in art and art therapy is to help achieve a sense of focus, flow and harmony. You can get lost in the flow of the patterns and colours and it certainly helps with mindfulness and wellness.

When you complete your Mandala

We have created a perfect surface for you to complete and then hang up in your home or office to show off. It is not a work of art meant for the cupboard or the inside of a book, but it is meant to be put on display for people to see. There is no greater sense of accomplishment than completing something beautiful that you did, all by yourself, and for yourself.

You can hang it on the wall with the hole provided by adding some string or simply hang it on a hook. You can also use it as a table mat, crystal grid, candle tray or any other home decor you desire! They look stunning in a group so once you have completed this first mandala, you can complete the collection and display them all together.

Here are some examples of how we have used our Mandalas at home.

When your Mandala is complete, we would love to see it.
