About Black and white Kolam : PRINT

Just wanted to have contrast colors, so used black thil (sesame seeds) for the outline.
The dot count is 6 dots 2 lines , 2 dots on both sides (straight dots), repeat this on all four sides.

Using sesame seeds to add contrast, what a neat idea! I know people use rice powder in kolams for feeding ants and such, but at a glance this image looked as if there was a mad rush of ants, reminded me of ration stores in India Smile

Rajamma ma'm, good idea!!!! it looks nice,if u added jaggery then
"ELLU,BELLA" u could have given to all members of ikolam(this is followed in karnataka)

Rajamma m'aam, your grandaughter is so lucky to learn from you! It must have taken you a long time to align the sesame seeds so perfectly! Biggrin
