A beautiful traditional rangoli, made by my neighbors on some Puja, but later it was drenched by rain we were left with this making photo only
5 to 1 oodu pulli. Extend diamond shapes at the ends whrever req
another star rangoli with kaavi,this time i made small variations in the same star pattern
wwith few modifications
This is a dotted star kolam. I had borrowed the basic pattern from one of my family member.
I banned my sisters from eating Jello, a few years back. But we have fun making designs with Jello-texture. Bright Jello-colors are my favorite ones to use, for rangolis.
Dot count: 9 to 1
This Kolam was drawn on Kathigai evening.Outline is given with Kumil.
i'm not sure if i am allowed to share this kind of art on a rangoli site...but i couldn't resist uploading few of my paper art attempts after i saw the one with different kinds of boats and hand made envelopes...
the picture inlcludes a 3d star, 2 coloured star, curly flower ball, swan, interchangable fireworks and a flower bunch...hope u like it...
This was put for some function in a hurry, so u can locate some omissions and commissions. But this, my original design, I always put every now and then.
When I read the comment of gauriji and looked at latAji's drawing
it occurred to me that I must study the building of this carefully and the result is
this rangOli. I have given six drawings here. They have one, two, three, four
(at the top), five and six dots (bottom pictures) at the edges. The number of
independent lines is equal to the number of dots for even number of dots and equal to
the number of dots plus one for odd number of dots. Two colours for the first two,
four for the second two and six for the bottom pictures. I used different colours
to distinguish these. You may also note that three rows at 120 degrees have
missing lines in the centre. Now you know how to draw these for any number of
dots. You can put any magic charm in the centre and earn puNya and wealth
None for this pApi
(The purple and blue don't show that well in the bottom picture. The purple is
thinner than the blue and connect the top dots.)
