Create beautiful henna tattoos at home! Color your world with the fabulous art of henna tattoo with this book of patterns and instructions for the body and home décor objects! Learn how to combine the 5 basic henna shapes into a variety of beautiful, Mehndi designs. Regardless of your skill level, you will find author Brenda Abdoyan's advice accessible and inspiring. From do-it-yourself henna basics, such as mixing and applying henna paste, to complex designs, this book contains everything you will need to start creating DIY henna art. Mehndi, the Arabic word for henna, is a traditional Middle Eastern art form used in ceremonies, such as weddings. While there are many regional styles of henna (or Mehndi) this book focuses on the Middle Eastern style. This style is characterized by its use of beautiful floral patterns. Brenda Abdoydan adds her own twist to the style, though, which she calls "Bajidoo." After three years of experimentation, Brenda Abdoyan created her own henna paste recipe. Here, she shares it with those who want to learn how to do henna tattoos at home. This book includes a recipe list and mixing instructions with additional instructions in case you need to modify the recipe. Here, you will find practice projects and simple guides for applying henna paste to your body. In this section, you will learn to make both basic lines and more complex patterns. Once you get comfortable with these practice projects, you can begin applying your own henna tattoos. The pattern of a given henna design depends on which body part it is meant for. For example, a design that goes on the feet will be different from one that goes on the shoulders. Here, Brenda shows you how to make henna art for the hands, feet, lower back, and shoulders, with designs grouped accordingly for easy reference. Whether you are experienced in arts and crafts or just getting started, you will appreciate Brenda's clear, easy-to-follow presentation and her personal flair. With her help, you will soon be creating intricate and unique henna art. Let her mastery inspire you!
