We bought some online and practiced. I made a much simpler design on my hand. You can see how my daughter likes the more intricate designs. I think with practice, we could become mehendi artists too! So many interests, so little time!
Note that the color darkens after a couple of days from a deep orange to a rustic brown. I got several strange looks at the Marian Eucharistic conference this weekend ... a few people were brave enough to ask me what in the world it was. Strange how people can be afraid of the unknown. I'm like a cat -- curious.
