I doubt that there is anything to suggest Pushpa except that with practice you will become a specialist in this too... Maybe the liquid is too thick?? Rajamma am I correct??

Thanks Judy ma'am ... I guess only practice can make it perfect and I will definitely keep my attempts going... but I remember that rajammaji had commented on my previous maa kolam that the batter be little thick not watery... so i am really confused....

Simple and Good, as Judy mam said, the batter should be some more liquid, so that you can get a smooth shape. By practice you will get a wonderful curves, don't worry, keep trying and keep on trying, better luck next time (you may remember Pepsi Uma's words in sun tv)

Yes Pushpa a little thick but I think yours is much thicker than required. When it is little thinner then the liquid will flow easily from your finger.. Also even if you see only water outline while doing after it dries it will look good. Rajamma HELP!!

Yes Pushpa, the batter looks little thick. the thickness of the maavu should be judged by u by its free flow. Sometimes the floor if it is cement or tile the thickness water absorbing tharai all contribute to it. By expeience u can judge. I feel free hand design will help u in concentrating on the lines you draw. pullikolam needs freequent curve drawing.
If u have interest u can master any art!
