Here is the closer view of Spicy Kolam.
I have used the spices which are usually stored in a South Indian “Aindhu Arai Petti” means box with five divisions, which is handy during cooking.
I have used Bengal gram, Cumin seeds, Fenugreek, Peppercorns, Fennel and green gram. No home work was done beforehand. I took all the spices and grams to fit into the kolam. This combination looked fine and went ahead with the design. To me, causally done are always the best 🙂
Roughly this kolam can be catergorised to 13×1 dot count.
If the design is drawn on rough surface for example on cement floor, the ring finger nail would vanish 🙁
To start, draw on a smooth floor granite or marble to get used with the drawing techniques, once if you get to know the angle the ring finger touches and the nail is unharmed then you have mastered it. Double stroke is by drawing middle and ring finger.
