Rangoli: Arsimaavu Kolam

One more experiment of maakolam which I did on my kitchen top - likewise to get it perfect I had to do it more than 4 to 5 times and this is the outcome - next time I will try Lata's suggestion of putting colour in the gaps.

Rangoli: Arsimaavu Kolam - two different styles

And finally my attempt at arsimaavu kolams - can this be classified as a padi kolam?? Experts please tell me? Lata if you look carefully you will see tiny dot spillings around the kolam (though I was very very careful not to spill). This kolam also I put about 4 times before I was able to get an almost perfect outcome - waited for it to dry fully and then clicked a pic and after I finished taking the pic I used a dry cloth to remove the arsimaavu - but to my surprise I discovered another style of kolams. I immediately clicked and have attached to the original picture for all of you to see and enjoy. Rajamma no ear buds this time, only dry cloth hehe......

This was done with wet kolam maavu. This can be kept for 2 or 3 days, wind or children cannot spoil it.
