Have you mixed the colours with powdered salt?

Pragaya's picture

Rajee Madam, the colours were not mixed with powdered salt. In fact the colours already had 'chamki' in it and I guess the glitter that it produces, gave the powdered salt effect on the colours in the photo.

Thank you so much for participating in the contest, and for providing us a visual treat with this beautifully drawn rangoli! Smile
(I too had assumed that glitter was added later on, thanks for the clarification).

This design is called 'parijatham'. Nicely done!

Pragaya's picture

I never knew that this design is called 'paarijatham'. Thank you very much for giving me this info.

Also I thank one and all for giving very valuable suggestions which will help me improve in future. Actually I was to put orange or dark blue instead of yellow. Unfortunately I did not have those colours and had no time to wait till it was bought. This rangoli was an accidental entry for the contest. Later on when I learnt that there was a contest in ikolam, the rangoli which was already put, was clicked on the mobile and loaded on to the site. There was no time to decide and put a fresh kolam for the contest.

Needless to say, I liked and enjoyed each and every part of the contest and all the entries were very good and lots to learn from them.

You guessed it right. It was clicked on the mobile phone and later on loaded on to the site.

Thank you
