padma ur excellent strokes, neatness, and d thar backround everything goes well ,,, it would be more better in a bright white podi

Beautiful work, Padma. Neat and thin strokes. For Red colour, Rani and Sowmya have suggested u to buy ready mix colour powders. I wish u can improve the brightness of your white colour podi - may be u can sift the white kola podi and then mix if with some arisi maavu. Hope this will improve the brightness of your white podi. This is only a suggestion dear and it was shared by one of our member only in one of the earlier uploads.
