These past couple of days have been busy in henna. So I will just let my pictures do all the talking. I tried many different styles and patterns that had been in the back of my mind. All of the designs came out beautifully.
Weddings in the family create a nice but hectic break from the daily routine. I cannot remember the last time I had been so tired. Nevertheless I did get to work on a lot of henna- for the bride, for myself, and on a candle.
We opted for a less filled in look and I was impressed with the way the bridal henna turned out.
My next endeavor will be creating patterns with fine point pens.
Very rarely do I get enough time to sit in one place and complete a task without interruption. Doing henna, for me, is not a chore, rather, it is therapeutic.
I love getting before and after shots and comparing them. This henna (whichI bought in Pakistan) is very good, it does not stain the hand too fast and it lasts a couple of days without peeling off and making ones hand feel like sandpaper. I kept my hand (with the paste on) in a plastic bag for an hour to help retain some heat. It work and the color stained very well. Perfect day for practice for upcoming brides!
My customer searched for this design online and I covered it as best as I could. It took me about 4.5 hours to complete. i procured this mendhi from Pakistan almost two years ago and it is still going strong. The color stains quickly upon the palm however it fades as quickly as it stains. This set came out beautiful. Thanks for choosing me to do it!
