Draw 6 circles measuring 3.5”, 2.5” and 1.5” diameter in size on the fabric.

STEP 3 : Prepare for the circles

Cut 6 circles to make the latkan.

STEP 4 : Paint the design

Draw and paint the mandala design by embedding the assorted foil mirrors using  Fevicryl 3D Outliner Red 701, Blue 702, Yellow 703, Light Green 704 and Orange 705. Let it dry.

STEP 5 : Finished look

Your final design of the latkan will look like this.
