About Sikku and Kuzhal kolam:

Hi friends, here is a sikku kolam with kuzhal border. The instrument used is not actually kuzhal but it is a small "Muram" shaped or a square spoon shaped instrument with holes in it. More the holes, wider the stroke. There is no lid for the instrument. Kolapodi should be taken in it and just dragged, touching the floor. It is actually difficult to draw lines or curves using this instrument than the kuzhal. Many of you would be familiar with it...! I enjoyed drawing kolam with this new invention...! Smile
