Rangoli Designs

Rangoli is an Indian folk art drawn on the floor with rangoli powders or paste. Rangoli is regionally known as Kolam, in Tamilnadu, Muggulu in Andhrapradesh, and Rangavalli in Karnataka. There are hundreds of rangoli designs in iKolam.com, created by members from all over the world.

Done with rangoli powder and stencil. Will try with colours later.

Here, sending stencil kolams. The designs are endless. You can create designs in combination with different stencils, repeat the same stencil around the centre one etc, and the imagination is yours.
Took inspiration from this site and did some mugullu with colors without dots, just designs with colors.

kunDalinI nAgabandha is a chikku kOlam! Here is one I made with a string. If you cut at any point and draw a head and tail, it becomes a nAga. The one I am showing is a closed one. One can give more twists or eliminate some to get newer patterns. Also this can be cut at two (four) opposite points to give rise to two (four) snakes. Regards! - mOhana
This is first try of Lakshmi's demo on kolam over water. I tried it using talcum powder.
