Mehandi (Henna)

The Mehandi painting is a body art from ancient India and a traditional way for women to dress up for special occasions especially on the Indian subcontinent, Africa and Middle East

Topic | Mehandi body art

Context | I love the mehandi body art as it an original way of decorating your body, plus the application process is very relaxing and meditative. As it only stays for a few weeks it gives you the opportunity to try out many different patterns and create new designs

Realisation | Creating design. Applying henna paste with cone. Waiting for the paste to dry. Removing the paste and oil the skin to make it longer lasting.

Material | Mehandi Cones
