My first henna :3

I took my wrap off this morning to discover that things didn't go nearly as bad as I was panicking they might've after trying out henna for the first time. ^^;

I mixed the henna with only lemon juice and sugar, because as a first-timer I really didn't want to try to get into anything else too complicated yet. I wrapped it and left it for about ten hours. It isn't very dark, although that could be mostly because its on my lower leg. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results, and I look forward to practicing some more. :)



Be gentle. XP I know there are a lot of problems with it, but I'm leaning.
My critique of myself: The lines are way too thick, and the leaves I attempted to add to the vines look like blobs. This is probably because I tend to draw with really thick lines normally, but that just doesn't translate well to skin.






I did a little test spot on an inconspicuous part of the sole of my foot, and discovered that henna on my sole turns an amazing blood-red color. I have no idea what I want to do with that, but I want to do something--so are there any suggestions for good beginner foot patterns? I'm not sure what looks good on feet.

Thanks for the advice, again~ <3 At least this is a learning process that's actually quite fun. ^^;

Oooo! Nice job! I can't wrap anything as my husband is a hot guy, and I just know I would wake up with his leg over mine, and a pool of sweat inside the wrap, LOL!

As mentioned, that's a normal color for a non terped first reveal, LOL! It will bloom darker tomorrow.

Careful! It's addicting! =-D
