This is one of my kolams to which the picture doesn't do any justice at all. And thats because I used a metallic / pearly lavender coat on top of the first kolam before starting the second one in white. Trust me - this piece looks so good in person, and I have actually gotten some compliments on it too! I am liking how the smaller kolams in the corner accentuates the middle piece. I also like the idea of a background kolam, but I think when I try this next, instead of a full kolam in the background, I will have a partial but bigger one in the background without the dots and a more intricate foreground. Any thoughts?
