Eureka Kolam

About Eureka Kolam : PRINT

I was much thrilled to see the final product of my experiment, Yellow Colour Powder Smile so made an instant kolam for a quality check.
Atpresent I don't have the luxury of using premixed color powders here, so was forced to find an alternate. My kolam journey always starts from kitchen. The first coloring agent struck my mind was Turmeric, kesari powder, coffee, tea(which you saw in my previous kolam, shades of brown) Beetroot, Red cabbage, yet to finalise the ratio :0.
There isn't much to tell about the above kolam, so for a balance I'm with lot of words. Enjoy Smile

Pretty in yellow and naturally made kolam Vinci. So, looks like you're getting into the habit of making such kolams quite often nowadays. Happy to see your kolams in other medium apart from the ones made of flower-petals. Smile

I have a question; how come you were able to upload a couple of hours ago when others were/are experiencing problems uploading. Any secrets? We're looking into the upload issue, but also were surprised to find two of your kolams uploaded after the problem-comments. Smile

Wonderful kolam Vinci - very neatly made (though I know it is difficult to spread turmeric like kolapodi you have achieved it so well). The design is so cute and matches your plate very well - only hope that plate does not get stained with the colour (sometimes happens). Dil Mange More!!

Rani, my comment caught your attention Smile So hereafter instant, spontaneous, fast, speed words are out of my dictionary :0

Thanks Lata (When kolams are uploaded once in a blue moon, I think there shouldn't be any problem in uploading, space issues etc...I think this is my secret, Jokes apart, I uploaded as usual and didn't face any problem), Mahalakshmi, Sowmya, Sindhuja, Judy, Alamelu Maam, Saras and Nithya for your encouraging comments.

Sorry forgot to add, I have used rice flour as the base material. Rice flour, turmeric powder blended together sprinkled with water and later dried to get a bright color. So this was the procedure for my experiment. The same applies with other coloring agents too.Still it was difficult to draw thin lines as the rice flour was too fine..
I guess I'm too talkative today, I don't why???
