Thanks for the FB. But in front of your kolams mine is chotta yar. But we should not compare one another no?
I love your kolams yar.
I must Thank Lata for presenting the LKG level paintings also here.

Dear Rajamma Madam.
You are exactly correct. I attended the class. I have finished with acralic colour paintings and frammed the work. To present to a friend i got sudden idea of cofee painting.So I used the motif of annam already i had done with. Somehow it came nice.
Have you seen the meenkari? That also I had done there in the same class in the afternoon session.It was with M.seal. I will upload that too.

Beautiful work ,could you elaborate on the method of doing it.
Wed, 2009-03-11 00:20
Dear Vijayalakshmi, just 2 days back I got the Snehidhi magazine from the Library and saw the article and picture. My daughter was telling me to put the rangoli of this beautiful annam. But When I opened the ikolam site, saw the same Annam standing majestically in a browu frame ( after drinking coffe I presume).
I wrote the details just to know more details about the class. You see we ikolam members are always in the learning process and willing to know new methods to introduce. So you can teach us what you have learnt.

Viji Madam yannau class le sethukongu.Nanu vare unga art classku.....

It is very easy method only
First copy the annam motif(others if you like but should have a lot of curves like motif).in a canvas cloth(Sorry i typed wrongly on my previous reply as cardboard But it is not cardboard and canvass)by yellow carbon.
Then take 3d metalic Gold outliner and give all the outline in that evenly.Take a little instant coffee add a little glue and gloss to it and a little water make a paste. With this paste apply whever you want thick colour. It is your choice. Then add a little more water and make the remaining paste thinner and apply the remaining parts.I used to make jewels. So I always prefer jewel making items in all my painting. So I pasted white stones according to my taste. This can be finished without even the stones. It is your like.Then paste the canvass cloth into a cardboard and then framme it. Even gold colour or brown colour framme matches the painting. O.K. any doubt?
