For mandala 29 design I’m using art markers for the large open areas of the mandala and colored pencils in the smaller detailed areas. The Prismacolor art markers will bleed through the page so make sure to use scrap paper under the page to protect the design beneath it.
Choose your own color palette or use the same as in the video. If you’d like to share your colored page with us, post it on Pinterest and message us @porterfig. We’d love to see it!

Color Along Video Notes – Mandala 29
In the video I’m coloring from our Mandalas 2 paperback coloring book available from Amazon.com.
Coloring book: Mandalas 2 – 30 Stress Relieving Mandala Designs (Mandala #29 is on page 65 in the paperback version | On page 31 of the digital PDF version.)
Prismacolor premier colored pencil colors: Sunburst yellow PC917, Orange PC918, Parma violet PC1008, Aquamarine PC905, Apple green PC912.
Prismacolor premier art markers colors: Light Cerulean blue PM-48 & Violet mist PM-60.
The Prismacolor mixed media art kit has both the colored pencils and markers used in this tutorial.
You can also try to match the colors to whatever brand pencils & markers you have.
Let’s start coloring! Step 1
With the light cerulean blue marker start on the outer design around the center. Then I switch to the sunburst yellow pencil and lightly color the center and the petal looking parts of the design. Then add in some shadows with the orange pencil blending into the yellow. Next is a light layer of violet. Go back over the purple pressing harder to create shadows around the edges. Then do the same with aquamarine. Finally a light layer of apple green followed by a second layer of green, pressing more as you color in the shadows. This completes the inner ring of the mandala.
Next color the large areas of the second ring of the mandala with the violet marker. Then use the cerulean blue marker for the areas shown in the video. Next lay down a light layer of sunburst yellow pencil, add a little pressure toward the bottom of the design as shown in the video. We’re going to do a yellow to orange color blend. Now add a layer of orange blending it into the yellow layer. Then with the apple green pencil do light layer of color followed by a darker layer in the corners. Do the same with the aquamarine pencil. Then repeat the previous step with the violet pencil and again with the orange pencil. Finally color a layer of yellow then add a light touch of orange, blending into the yellow.
That’s it! Congratulations on completing the design.
