Mandala Dotting Tools for all Dot Art and Dotillism

Burnaby, Canada | 4,255 Sales

Announcement    As of May 29th we are still able to send our tools/kits out regularly, but we cannot guarantee the delivery time of your order.

ALL INTERNATIONAL DELIVERIES (excluding US and Canada), that have been sent in the last month, looks like they have been delayed at the US distribution center for a few weeks, so thank you for your patience in the delivery. Due to this I will be sending all international packages through Canada Post (Same costs and delivery times, but unfortunately no tracking). There are major delays in postage, due to the reduction in flights and increase in postal services so it maybe up to 30-60 day delay in delivery (I have no clue with delivery times at this moment), but you maybe lucky at get it within 3 weeks!

ALL US deliveries are usually being delivered within 3-5 days, but things are changing every day, so there maybe a delay of 1-2 days.

All Canadian deliveries are delayed due to the increase of postage volume and decrease in flights, so deliveries are taking between 3-20 days for delivery. Ontario is experiencing longer than usual delays

Please note that is a tough time for business, postal service and the world right now, and if there are any changes to your orders, or I am unable to fulfill due to changing circumstances, I will let you know immediately. Thank you for your patience. If your country/area is on lock down, then your postal system will be too. I recommend ordering when your country's postal system is up and running again.
Thank you for supporting our small business

From grief to a business. From terrible artist to a dot art teacher.

My world shattered in 2016, when my baby daughter passed away. I was feeling very anxious about returning to work and returning to a 'normal life' when my life suddenly turned left.
To keep my mind occupied and to numb out, I created a fairy garden, which lead to my first mandala stone (shout out to Elspeth Mclean's inspiring work). I was immediately hooked! One stone, turned into 2, then 5, and I could not stop.
I found the process of creating dots very meditative and calming to my turmoil emotions and liken it to adult colouring books, except there was a gorgeous stone in my garden.
The one thing that held me back was my amateur brush strokes. (Nobody has ever told me I was good at art!). I made it my quest to make the perfect round dot in different sizes every time so I created my first prototype for the DIY Mandala Dotting Tools in 2016.
These dotting tools, made me want to share this easy craft and experience with others and demonstrate that beginners and non artists like myself can create amazing stones, while finding solace in the creative.
With each stone or picture I create, there is a sense of pride and wonderment - "Did I just create that?" I am still amazed to this day that I can design these amazing pictures, and produce different designs with just a simple dot.
An artist friend once said to me "who knew you were so talented?"...........she was right, so maybe it's time to see how creative you are........
