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?

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 good.next 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.

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.
