Sikku Kolam – 118

Muggulu, rangavalli, chikku kolam,
Small to Big :-)

I didn’t have a mood to draw a sikku with a single line, as a single line sikku kolam needs a rehearsal before going on to the floor version. A single line has to travel throughout the kolam without duplicating, so a swift twist and turns are more seen in this single boss kolam 🙂

So today I preferred to play a safe game by choosing a seven dots kolam and very easy one.. I joined four 7 dots kolams to create a five in one kolam… I created five kolams and had 10 dots left out 40 in total. Tried to add some sikku strands, but wasn’t satisfied as I felt those looked aloof from the main design, so gone for a lamps. These lamp design should have been the first design for many who started to draw kolams as a child 🙂
I hope 6×6 dot count should the one which I am referring to !! 🙂

Ms.Sangeetha from Mumbai had asked me about the rangoli powder. The rangoli powder which I have used for this kolam is Nylon Podi. Hope Bengalurians will be aware about I am talking about. This rangoli powder is an old stock which I got from a friend of mine. Last month a good friend of mine took the pain of purchasing some 50kgs of Nylon Podi and 60kgs colour powders and shipped to my parents home from Bengaluru. Hopefully I will ship them to Singapore in June :-0


  1. Thanks Sonali for your appreciation..

    I have used nylon rangoli powder for this particular rangoli which I got from Bengaluru… and directly used the powder without any additives. ..

    Not all rangolis are drawn with nylon powder which are displayed in this site, some with Mumbai rangoli powder and some rangolis with the powder available in my home town and added rice flour in small quantity…

  2. Hi

    All kolams are simply beautiful. Just wanted to ask one thing. Do you use only rice powder ar you mix it with Rangoli powder.
