Yay, something new from Sumathi! The outlines look pretty well defined in this image, and that does make the design stand out. Ofcourse, our roller experts will shower you with tips very soon. :0
I also enjoyed the diyas arrangement. (Give me two more of them please...i know i'm getting greedy here). :0

Sumathi, nice roller kolam. use mixing kolapodi and rice powder or make the holes of the roller bigger with a pin.
The diya arrangement is looking very nice.

This is a stunningly good rangOli. However, I have some problems in viewing this. The lamps are dominating too much with the result that the strokes are not clearly visible. In fact, the light beams of the lamp, while looking adorable, give an illusion of lines.

Sumathy mam...whats this....whats this i am seeing from u...WOW....this is something sooo refreshing to see a new attempt by anybody....ur first kuzhal kolam is soooo lovely....regarding d tips...i know u mix ur kolam pdr with raw rice pdr, and d floor has to be wet but not stagnated with even little water....again one more thing is...take d pic only after 10 mins of ur roller kolam...by this time...d thin lines would've settled nicely on d floor and u get a bright pic....also...if u r not satisfied with just one roll...for one stroke...do it again...may be u get a thicker stroke and above all these...whichever image editor software u use...just try sharpening ur pic...and see d difference....inda tips poduma innum konjam venuma...hahaha(is this enough...)

Very well done, Sumathy:) You got your lines very neat and symmetrical. The effect of diya's light adds beauty to this wonderful kolam.
Already you have many tips from Rani. Usually the kuzhal with curly lines (neli) make little feeble lines than the straight ones. But, as Rajammaji said, you make the holes bigger using pin and it will give you thicker lines. Also, smooth surface doesn't give thicker lines.
