Brinda, Did you use any stencils to make all the flowers in the centre, side corners and the centre three designs? It is really marvellous.

Brindha ma'am this is really awesome... you should seriously start designing carpets... this is so beautifully done... it does not seem like a kolam at all... so realistically done

Hey Brinda, Had to visit your wonderful work again today...just can't take my eyes off it...hope you will share the dotted pattern with us. As you did not use stencils, how long did it take to make?

A dotted kolam!! I wouldn't have guessed it Brinda! :) It is beautiful and very realistic. As usual the colors chosen work well for the pattern. The fringes on both edges of the carpet are unbelievably made! Flawless work and very beautiful indeed. :) If possible do upload the basic dotted kolam separately made (maybe done on a piece of paper), one of these weeks. Thank you.

no words very niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Fri, 01/29/2010 - 21:21 Permalink
OMG Brindha - I am sure you are bluffing us - this is a real carpet (cheating cheating) - like Saras said I had to pinch myself to believe it is a handmade rangoli. Oh come on Judy! even after seeing Brindha's earlier creations how can you come up with this doubt?? (I am checking myself for doubting friends - do excuse me)- this is just unbelievable, you have left me dumbfounded Brindha. Every part of this masterpiece is so perfectly crafted and displayed that there is nothing to describe how lovely it is - a sure WINNER (so no need to say all the best to you) :)

toindhu, you can make your own kolapodis at home by mixing holy colour powders with normal white powder.

Hi brindha, What made you to stop giving the comments/votes?. Being an expert we expect some comments so that we get motivated to put more kolams which can please you. Where you so busy for all these five days ????????????????????. I will be expecting your valuable comments and suggestions.
Sun, 01/31/2010 - 23:28 Permalink
Hi Sudha, don't get disappointed that i didn't voted. I did my job. But i will post my comment from today onwards. You yourself is one of the experts. (I am not such an expert. Still learning).
