Why do we draw rangoli near the gas stove at night
Diwali dots rangoli | Square rangoli designs
6 dots kolam or 6 dots muggulu for Diwali
This is the latest and newest addition to this category of rangoli designs, the dot pattern is 6 by 6. This rangoli is quite common and can be found at the entrance of many homes in Tamil Nadu. The black and white photos of the rangoli showing the steps below.
Complete the rangoli and add simple decorations inside the floral petals to make a simple rangoli attractive and beautiful. This design can also be used if you are looking for a small kolam of Margazhi or Pongal or for that matter New Year
Using the same 6 by 6 dot pattern and the same outer floral petal designs we can change the central pattern to a flower to get the kolam as shown in the steps below
The difference between this kolam and the previous kolam in the outer floral petals is that while I have drawn 3 petals in the previous kolam, in this design there are four petals
The same rangoli with the steps required. First draw the straight lines as shown on the four sides. Add floral patterns on the tops and connect the three dots at the bottom of each straight line with jagged patterns as shown. Complete the rangoli as in step 3. Two colourful versions are available here for reference.
Some kolam videos with 6 dots from my kolam Channel
The next rangoli using 6 dot grid is a plain white design. The dot pattern is 6 by 6. As is obvious from the images it is a very simple design using simple patterns and can be used as a daily rangoli design. Two intermediate stages of the kolam are shown below.
Paisley designs are also used in rangoli with dots. They can be drawn using a portion of the dot pattern or can be drawn free hand outside the dot grid. In this rangoli I have used three dots on each corner of the dot grid to draw the paisley design. It is a 6 by 6 dot grid. The rangoli is show in three steps. In the first step the patterns shown are drawn leaving the central dots and the ones at the corners for Paisleys. The dots at the centre have been used to get lamps designs. The completed rangoli is shown in the third step.
The kolam shown in the photo below uses a 6 by 6 dot grid. After placing the dot grid draw the four patterns including the paisley (or mangai design in Tamil ). At the centre use the two by two dot grid to draw the designs in purple. Around this the deepam design is drawn with the remaining dots. The gaps have been filled with kolam powder to make the kolam appear complete. The steps have been shown in the previous pic. We can add more decorations after filling up the colours. I have added a few lines in yellow.
