Lata, my son told me that his classmates do this type of ranglois fast for any special occasion in their college! They draw squares with chalk-piece, mark the color for the squares and keep filling them with hand releasing the powder thro' the whole within little finger! Even you can use a cone also to do this!Anyway, Iam yet to try as Iam ever lazy!

Jayaji and Vani, thank you for the explanation, I would try a tiny design later on, as I'm running low on kolam powder.

One of my embroidery kolam I tried this method on a tile. But it takes so much time.
This rose looks nice.... an embroidery on the floor!
