Remake kolam

judelined's picture

Thanks to Rajam, I was tempted to make this kolam done by Suba recently. Due to popular demand I found a wooden plank and tried it out with my new technique. I am not very happy with the outcome as the overlapping strokes are not quite clear in some places. This is because the plank had some scratches on it and the ear bud was not able to glide through properly, still I decided to share this with all of you for your valuable suggestions and comments. Suba especially yours...

Waw , nice try. I could feel that it is not upto ur full satisfaction, but a new trial . So go ahead and achiive what u are capable of. ( by the way I am woorried whether it is the rice powder used , are u reusing it or wasting it after the kolam is removed?)

Thanks a lot Rani (no I am yet to try it), Suguna, Rajam (no worries that is kolapodi with a little ricepodi mixed in it, and definitely reused - will definitely make it more perfect next time), Suba (so glad you liked it - no probs where it is taken from, you made it in your version and uploaded it na), Jaya, Uma and Sindhu for your encouragement and comments..

with all the destruction in the wooden plank, the kolam has come out excellent.

Judy this attempt is very nice pa but as u said the scratches in the plank is making the kolam look slightly distorted, yet it is not easy to do a kolam in this style, like they are overlapping. I am sure if the plank was a smooth one, this would have looked wonderful...

Good attempt, but would have looked more beautiful if done in the regular way. I think there amy be limitations to this technique if the pattern is quite large.

Your presentation is an unique creation Judy. I feel if you had done in any other medium, that would have been a jujubi work to you, But creatiing impression with buds, again redoing at the junctions, a tedious job indeed. All to the above I'm much drawn to your patience Judy Smile
