Mandala designs are a very popular way of practising creativity and mindfulness. The act of creating this circular design requires patience and meditation and can be hugely rewarding.

The design below is easy to recreate and the initial step by steps will show you how many mandala designs start; with concentric circles and intersecting lines. We’ve used a variety of uni-PIN pens in our design as they have a variation in nib sizes, allowing you to produce both fine lines and expressive brush strokes. 

We’ve added a further flourish to our design by incorporating watercolour washes in the background. The PIN’s pigment ink is waterproof so they’re ideal for overlaying on watercolour. Simply apply your watercolour, wait a few seconds so any excess water is absorbed into the paper, then work over with your PIN.
