About Step by step instructions to draw kolams:


I have put up a few kolams in my site - demonstration - Step by step instructions to draw kolams.

Before I work on more, I wanted to find out if it will be useful. I thought this forum would be the correct place to clarify my doubt.

Welcome to ikolam Ms.Sumathi! Smile

You've a nice collection of dotted kolams. The first one reminds me of baby snakes. Smile

Showing step by step demonstrations is always helpful. I started making my step-step designs 8yrs ago in this site, and from experience, I say that it has been useful, is useful at present and it would continue to be useful in the future as well. We look forward to more of your designs, and thank you for sharing your artistic work here, at ikolam, with all of us. Smile

Hi Sumathiji, very nice to see your kolams. the chikku kolams will be useful for the beginners. All of them are very nice and as Rajammaji said the forth one is tempting:) Is it 26 dots-two rows?
