This is first try of Lakshmi's demo on kolam over water. I tried it using talcum powder.

This has come out well for your first try. Guessing from the texture of the blue powder, wasn't it a bit slippery for you to draw with it? Smile

Yes u r rigth Lata, the blue powder was slightly out of control

How 2 do this - rangoli on water?? I tried it for Ganesh Chaturthi but the rice powder sunk in water.. I put lots of oil in water n had also greeced the glass container but all went in vain..

I hav seen the demo pictures in the kolam and did it in same ways, can u pls guide me??

Sumathi it come up time first spread the talcom powder, colour the top with colours of your choice ( as this will be second layer ) and draw the rangoli with rangoli powder (Rangoli powder + rice flour mixed this will give good flow)..try this.

Hi Lakshmiraghu

Can you tell me if you draw first then pour water above, or after pouring water you drew the rangoli? I hv done it after drawing the rangoli then pouring the water above.
