6-7 dots rangoli step by step images


A unique and tricky kolam - step by step tutorial 

The dot pattern is 7 dots 6 rows and 6 dots 7 rows. First place the 7 dots rows and then in the gaps place the 6 dots rows

Though it is small it is beautiful isn't it.

The first step shows the straight lines drawn as shown in the image below starting from the centre of the dot grid

The next step draw parallel lines to the previous lines connecting the respective dots

step-4-of-rangoli-19-2.png

The next set of parallel lines starting from the image in the previous pattern in four directions as shown in the next photo

The next set of parallel lines in four directions perpendicular to the previous pairs of lines

The remaining dots are connected with curved lines

For further decoration we can draw lotuses or any other suitable patterns.  I have used lotus designs on all four sides.

This is also called biscuit kolam . At first sight this design may appear to be easy but it is likely that we may get stuck some where
so it is preferable to practice it a few times if possible on paper with pen or pencil and then try it on the floor with kola podi

The next kolam in this type is a sikku kolam ,  this can be drawn with bigger dot patterns also  I have chosen 6-7 dots for this blog post to match the tile !

It consists of repeated patterns - rhombuses outside four dots as can be seen from the thumbnail in the video below.  Again we have to focus and draw with concentration to get it right easily.
