Boise Henna Designs
Robyn is a Boise-based Mehndi Kalaakaar (artist), she always has the art world wondering what she is going to do next. Robyn is self taught in the world of henna/Mehndi design and has become quite passionate providing these designs for local Indian festivals and celebrations.
Here are a few key pointers of things you should do if you are going to apply henna to your skin!
First things first:
Get good quality henna paste!
If you want good results, this is the best place to start. If you are getting a design by me, I will provide my own henna paste. (If you want recommendations of where to get paste, shoot me an email!) :)
Taking care of your Mehndi design
Don't wash it off
After many hours of keeping paste ON, you are ready to see the beautiful design without paste, but don't rush to water to wash it off! Use a spoon or card to scrub the remaining paste off your skin.
Do not wash in water or soap. You will see an orange to light maroon design under the brown henna paste. It will be not dark yet, but don't worry it will get there!
