I'm speechless. Such a wonderful rangoli for Diwali. Looking great with diyas.

Really super Brindaji. How much time did you take to create this rangoli. Colour combination, lighting effect make the rangoli all the more beautiful. You could have won prize for this had you sent it for competition. Excellent work.

Such rich colors evenly spread, and amazingly pretty strokes! But then again, this is Brenda we're talking about here, so could we expect any less?

Wonderful kolam. The colours, the pattern, all are excellent.

Kameshwari unfortunately because of the rules she cannot take part in the competition because she has already won a prize you see Brindha I just don't know what to say. The entire kolam looks so heavenly. The definite shape of each and every design, so lovingly done by your creative mind and hand needs a very big applause. The colours look perfect even in the dark (wonder how it would have looked in the day??). The lamp design on the outer circle is superb. I love the way the big lamps are holding the tiny lamps in their arms - they look so cozy there Epitome of perfection Brindha dear. I just want to go on and on, but seriously, am lost for more words

Looking at it again - I think you should have placed the real lamps in the flame of the kolam lamp thereby giving the feel of that the kolam lamps are lit up.

BTB, how do you prepare such bright colours? readily available or you prepare using stainers or what? Do you use rangoli powder or sand ? kindly give us the tips for your fan.

SSSSSSOOOOOO very Beauuuuuuutiful Brindha. Symmetrical too. The blue shade inside looks like painted. Is it so? The colour combo, design, the placement of lamps, the night effect, everything is making this rangoli very unique.

Thanks to all my friends. It is all your words which drive me to do better and better. (After seeing all your comments I felt a little embarrassed and flattered whether I deserve all these).
Let me enjoy the new comers colourful and wonderful creations.
@padma: Some colours I get it readymade powders and some I make myself with white kolapodi and fabric dye (dont forget to use gloves while doing so)
@Judy: Experimentation led us to the present placement of lamps.
@Rani: Day-light version will be uploaded in a couple of days.
Tue, 2010-11-09 09:49
@Jayanti: Thank you Jayanti It is not paint of course
