Rangoli designs with dots

Traditional kolam designs suitable for beginners. The steps to making these kolams are pretty self explanatory. Start with the dots (if any) and then followed by the lines. Once done, optionally, the enclosed areas of the kolam may be filled with color rangoli powder.

Sikku and Kuzhal kolam - by thilakalakshmi - on 2014-03-27 08:35

Hi friends, here is a sikku kolam with kuzhal border. The instrument used is not actually kuzhal but it is a small "Muram" shaped or a square spoon shaped instrument with holes in it. More the holes, wider the stroke. There is no lid for the instrument. Kolapodi should be taken in it and just dragged, touching the floor. It is actually difficult to draw lines or curves using this instrument than the kuzhal. Many of you would be familiar with it...! I enjoyed drawing kolam with this new invention...! Smile

It feels great to join the mood.....Have tried to bring the colours in my own way....Purple stands for justice, green for faith, and gold for power..... Have fun!
