This is the step that will take most of your time in this process. Choosing the color combination is your choice. You need to start filling colors upside down. First, fill the flowers so that they can be accurate.

After your flowers are completed, you need to fill the colors in the background. Background color will do the best creative part in your Rangoli (रंगोली). Therefore you need to be attentive to this step. Just make sure that you establish a balance between colors while filling them.

In order to stay away from any confusion in your Rangoli (रंगोली), you need to balance the background colors.

For example,

When you are done with all your coloring then you can spread अबरक, Silver Glitter over your final Rangoli (रंगोली) for glittering effect in it. It might not be very alluring in the picture but it does look very good when you look at it.
