How to Master the Art of Mehndi Brilliantly
The art of Mehndi or the application of henna is famous all over the world and because of the beauty and appeal of this art, it is available almost everywhere under the sun today. Mehndi, also known as henna, comes in a variety of different varieties like Indian Mehndi, Pakistani Mehndi, and Arabian Mehndi to name three.
The Mehndi usually comes in reddish-orange, brown and black and is used in large parties and occasions like weddings. Natural henna actually lasts longer than artificial henna. So if you want to use henna for yourself, choose natural henna instead of artificial henna.
Are you looking for a way to use henna effectively for yourself or someone else for an event? Now let’s see how to design and paint simple Mehndi patterns or even complicated ones on hands, legs, and other body parts without much effort.
First, you have to prepare your henna. You can buy ready-made henna from many shops or you can choose to make your own henna. Natural henna is preferable as it would last at least one or two weeks.
To make henna, you have to put the natural henna powder in a container, which does not get stained and add some boiling water with a little jasmine oil to the powder. You can also add sugar, coffee, or tea to the solution to make the color deeper, but you can also do without these things. If you want, you can add lemon juice to the paste to keep it fresh longer.
If you are not sure which container to use, use an empty margarine container that you can throw away when you are done, and that could also be used to store henna if you want to keep it for future use. Mix the paste until it looks like toothpaste. Once the pasta has reached this level, close the container and store it for about 2-3 hours.
Choose from Indian, Pakistani, and Arabic mehndi and apply your mehndi using pre-made templates or even toothpicks. The tools you use depend on the complexity of the design you choose. After applying the henna to the body parts, let the henna rest on the skin for about 3 hours and let it dry. Once you notice that the mehndi is dry, simply peel off the henna, but be sure not to wash the applied area for at least half a day.
Henna designs for hands and legs are generally more complicated and sensitive than other parts of the body, so great care should be taken when applying these designs. Asking a professional to apply henna for you may be the wisest move, but doing it yourself would certainly be a fun and satisfying experience. There are a variety of Mehndi tutorial packages, use them, and learn the right way to apply henna in a simple way. Grab a henna design book now and become a henna expert!
