I kept staring at it for sometime. It stared back at me. I wondered why had I picked this ugly piece of (Hallare) tea light holder from Ikea two years ago. Then I had liked it.
Today a little ornamental painting on it would at least give it a facelift. Or so I thought.
Armed with my number zero paintbrush, I mixed together Titanium white and Ochre yellow and painted these Mandala-inspired motifs around the aluminum candle dishes.
Mandala is a Sanskrit word which means “circle”. In Buddhist and Hindu art forms, Mandala have spiritual and ritual significance. For me it was enough inspiration to spend a Sunday afternoon doing something eclectic.
I’d want to know from you what you think of my little DIY. You know it, don’t you, that your opinion always matters to me…
