SuganthiMohan's quilled colour kolapodi

rajamma_2's picture

Just used the colour kola podi to copy the original. Though the quilling effect we could not get with the podi, I tried my best. It took nearly one and half hours to complete it. Suganthi inspired and Vidhya provoked usto do this.

Wow, wow Rajam - this looks so beautiful. You have copied it so well. Every part has come out perfectly. The highlight is the zoomed in image of the kolam. I love the way the sunshine streaks are kissing this kolam. I think you forgot to finish the two flowers on the top right and left Smile

Wow!, madam, your kolam is very bright and excellent, putting kolam directly in colour podi is nice

Not only the right top corner vidya, the left top corner's petal is missing, is it a design?

This gives a different and nice look without the white kolapodi, Rajammaji! All the colours are bright but not irritating the eyes. (blue is so lovely). The twirls are perfect and shows the work of an expert:)

Rajamma maam, how r u? My PC was out of order so i was not able to log in to ikolam, really i have missed almost 15 to 20 days. About this kolam what to say ?????????/ For the design, for the colours, for the strokes, for the perfection i can give you 'O" grade - OUTSTANDING and a remarkable kolam it is really a feast for the eyes

Wow Rajamma maam this is so so so lovely and pleasing colors used by you... we dont get to see kolams from u as often as we used to before... the white background highlights the colors even more in the sunlight... very beautiful maam

Thanks for all the appreciations. I thought more people will participate. Anyhow it was fun doing it jointly with out any exam fever. Each ones entry was unique in its own style. There is no comparison... I could feel the time and energy spent by everyone.I too joined only in the last minuite like Judy. The two flowers extension I could not put since the color powder mixed was over . By the time I mixed the new one the color became different, And the sun also peeped inside to see the kolam , so I hurried to take the photo. So missing parts are intentional only.
Pushpa, like Sudha I was on holiday in S'pore and enjoying with 3 kids, after return also busy with other committments hence the delay in posting new kolams. Adhaan kalaaykkaradhukku neengallaam irukkeengale!

Though this freehand design looks simple to look at, you realize how much time it consumes to draw on the floor/PC only after starting to copy it! Great efforts by all members! Rajam, I like your uniform lines and color choice!

You're so right Jayaji!
The kolam is very bright, and the strokes are so even. Your interest in participating is a great encouragement to one and all. Smile
(Nice choice of words; "Vidhya provoked". That's exactly what she did Smile )

A beautiful, colurful kolam with cooling colours to the eyes. Nice seeing all your replica kolams. Lata, I think you can include a new category of "Replica Rangoli (Kolams)" or "Kopykat Kolams" and add all the copy cat kolams. I think it will be a good idea. What do you say Lata ?

Lata's picture

Padma, I had such a category called "Inspiration rangolis" last year. But, for some reason that didn't get populated so often. Also, since the inspiration rangolis belonged to a separate theme, each time, it made sense to separate them as themes, such as; chandramukhi drum rangolis, bluebells rangolis, valentine, st.patrick's day, garden-flowers, vegetables, and so on and so forth. Smile
Thank you for the wonderful suggestion Padma. Smile
