Traditional henna (mehandi) designs for weddings are beautiful.... I looked online for some ideas, but when it came right down do it.... Unless you take the time to practice or unless you are somewhat more talented than I am, you will come out with something much more primitive!! It wasn't very easy to squeeze the henna paste out of the container. I wonder if Indian women prefer to use plastic tubes or if they are okay with this medium? I found that while it was okay at first, once the henna started to clump up inside near the tip, it because almost impossible for me to squeeze out. As a result of my unsuccessful attempts to squeeze and squeeze, I resorted to cutting the tip of the tube until it got to the point that it just squirted out in huge globs- so what was the point??!!! I'm not so great at it, it's only my first time, and even Alex agreed that I get someone next time who knew how to apply henna and to make nice designs... I actually met a woman in line at the post in Antony... So, I know need to locate her number and see if she's still around!! Who knows, maybe I will host a Henna Party chez moi!! That would be fun... Let me know if you are interested!!!
