I welcome every one to my home on this magic carpet. It has been my long term desire to make a carpet. I did one for the first time and it is for you to judge how good it is.

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.

Thank you everyone for your valuable comments and votes. There is no stencil work in this and is fully hand made dotted kolam.

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

kitsfin's picture

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?

Lata's picture

A dotted kolam!! I wouldn't have guessed it Brinda! Smile
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. Smile

If possible do upload the basic dotted kolam separately made (maybe done on a piece of paper), one of these weeks. Thank you.

I'm dumb stuck here brindha maam. It's marvellous nobody will say that this is rangoli. OMG that's qwesome.

Rajusree's picture

Brindha maa'm i couldn't resisit viewing ur kolam every 3 mins. That's awesome.

jayashree_v's picture

only one word...WINNER ( the competition)...wot else to say about the kolam...i'm still figuring out if it is a kolam or a real carpet...simply perfect, awesome, fantastic, superb, mindblowing, beautiful (i'm running out of adjectives..please help me with more)

Sarasp's picture

I have become speechless! I had to pinch myself to come bac to normalself..
You are the WINNER!!

lakshmishankar's picture

no words very niceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

prabharangan's picture

Wow it is beautiful. perfect

judelined's picture

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) Smile

Ishwarya's picture

It looks like a real carpet. Really very nice.. Smile

toindhu's picture

brinda ji can u please tell me which shop u buy your colors?

brindhanagesh's picture

Thanks everyone. Judy you are excused Smile . I will upload the dotted version in another post (after the voting).

brindhanagesh's picture

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.

brindhanagesh's picture

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).

Hearty congratulations for a grand entry and for your participation Brinda. Smile
