A small sikku kolam with 7-1 dots. A spicy kolam Isn’t it?
This kolam has an intresting story behind this. I saw this kolam on a street while I was making my way through that road.
I was attracted to a new design and I couldn’t make it in to my memory, so looked for a piece of paper, All I had a receipt, so just copied one portion of the kolam while taking note on the dot count and recreated after returning home. To till date, this kolam always brings a smile to my face rewinding the incident happened some 5 years ago.
A simple kolam with one line traversing throughout the kolam creating a beautiful design. I have used wet rice paste for this kolam. Do you want to know what is wet rice paste, Then here is the YouTube Link to know more about the preparation, storage and basic strokes of drawing a maakolam.
As mentioned above, I have used wet rice paste to draw kolam and later after the paste dried, I added DIY colour powders to enhance the kolam. As the long loops looked like peppers, so added red colour to make it spicy 🙂
The centre light and dark shades are from Nescafe gold and Filter coffee 😀
