Happy monday guys. here is another bridal design. the top portion was inspired by an artist. i don't remember who. if you have a clue please tag. . . over the past couple of months i have followed a bunch of indian artists. i'm in awe of all their works. it wasn't easy to do the transition from a gulf artist to a full blown indian bridal artist. but heyy! that's how you learn. i love love love indian bridal style now. occasionally i do get brides who request arabic bridals. i'm glad i can swing between the two styles. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan . . #india #calicut #kannur #kozhikode #kerala  #khaleejihenna  #trivandrum#kollam#hennatattoo #hennaart #mehendi#naturalhenna #henna  #hinna  #delhi#cochin #hennadesigns  #mehndi#mehendiartist#thiruvananthapuram  #bridal #heena  #7enna #khaleeji  #الحناء #حناء #

The final stain. i kept the paste on for for more than 15 hours. i make a high sugar mix. the sugar:henna ratio by weight is 1:2. that means i add 50 grams of sugar to 100 grams of henna. this ensures the henna stays stuck to the skin pretty well. after it was dry ( well a high sugar mix is always mushy but it gets hard after most of the moisture is gone) i apply sugar syrup( again here lemon is not necessary just mixing sugar in water is enough. take sugar in a small bowl and pour enough water as to just cover the sugar. microwave or heat it for a min to dissolve the sugar as much as you can. apply this with a cotton pad. you might get excess of it even if you are careful. just blot the excess off with a tissue or else your design will run. this step ensures that your paste will never ever dry out. if are like me and you like to keep your arms and feet warm under the blanket while you sleep then you need to cover the whole thing up otherwise the sugar will stick to your sheets and blanket. split a cotton pad so that you get a nice thin layer. apply it on the deisgn. cover the design completely. it's easy since the cotton fibres stick to the sugary layer below it and the cotton layers stay stuck and won't budge. after that cover it with a medical tape. make sure you secure it loosely or else you will smush your deisgn. the next day morning i woke up and removed all this( it is very difficult to pull off the cotton fibers from the sugary mix so just scrape as much as you can with a spoon or blunt knife) finally soak the stubborn henna with coconut oil and wipe off with a hard towel so that you get every bit off. . . any questions ? shoot away in the comments. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan

A little tutorial video for doing the jumbo leaves. first and foremost, get the shape right. that only comes with practice. a lot of practice!!!. stretch you creative muscles!! next comes the technique during application. here i used a very runny paste. draw the border first. wait for a few mins to dry and then fill up the bulk portion. when you wait for the border to dry, you will be able to fill up the body very thick( means a deep dark stain) without the design running and becoming a huge blob of mess. make pointy base and tips to further accentuate the shape and make it look all pretty. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan . . #india #calicut #kannur #kozhikode #kerala  #khaleejihenna  #trivandrum#kollam#hennatattoo #hennaart #mehendi#naturalhenna #henna  #hinna  #delhi#cochin #hennadesigns  #mehndi#mehendiartist#thiruvananthapuram  #bridal #heena  #7enna #khaleeji  #الحناء #حناء #

Health warning: . . ladies in the middle east!! please read. . . here is a henna powder that i picked up from oman. it is a very popular brand here. one among the many i can say. . . after testing their cones personally, i would say anybody can smell the petrol/gasoline added to it. my whole house reeked of petrol for two straight days. inhaling petrol or direct contact with skin is dangerous. why do they add petrol to the henna? petrol helps the henna stain the skin faster. also i have noticed that with a petrol mixture the stain oxidises faster. ladies!!! there is no shortcut for good results. for the sake of your health, i suggest you use good quality oils in henna. it will give you the exact same results as petrol or gasoline in your henna paste without the health risk. petrol is carcinogenic. if you expose yourself to it, you are putting your health in grave danger. feel free to 'google' about 'harmful effects of petrol'. then you know what i am talking about. . . it is a humble request. those in my followers list, who are in the middle east, please share this post. i have seen lactating and pregnant ladies use the petrol mixed henna paste. please educate yourself regarding the same. ask for henna without petrol. do not put yourself and your family at risk. . . i wanted to try the henna powder. follow the numbers in the picture. 1. as of now i have only tried ' bhavna' henna powder. i wish to try more and review it for you. 2. the colour of the henna powder was a big turn off for me. i've been using henna for quite a long time and this one was nothing like i have ever seen. then again henna powder comes in different shades of green. i put off judging it until i have tested it further. 3. this picture shows that there is an unusual green tint to the mix that gets absorbed to the tissue. to me it looks like green dye. 4. the fact that green dye has been added became more obvious after 24 hours of mixing. no change in the colour. not even after 48 hours. i tried a bit on my skin. it doesn't even stain good. . . now both the henna cone and the henna powder 'bhavna' was a huge let down. . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan

Finger design practice. i always find it so hard to do fingers. anything i find it difficult to do, i practice it over and over again until it becomes less of a chore to me and i really start enjoying the process. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan . . #omani #oman🇴🇲 #7ena #falaj #design  #instagram  #khaleejihenna  #sohar #hennatattoo #hennaart #7ina #naturalhenna #henna  #hinna  #muscat #alkhuwair #hennadesigns  #bodyart #india  #gulf  #oman #heena  #7enna #khaleeji  #الحناء #حناء #عمان #الخليجي #خليجي

Credit to @hennabydevakysdharan - a little practice for me. being in touch with henna every single day can make astounding changes to your work. it is the same for beginners as well as professionals. so whip your henna cones out and doodle something everyday. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan . . . #dsdhennavideos . #hennatattoo #hennaart #naturalhenna #henna  #hinna #hennadesigns  #bodyart #oman #heena  #7enna #khaleejihenna  #الحناء #حناء #عمان #الخليجي #drawing #art #hennapractice #satisfying #pleasing #mesmerizing #floraldesign #stimming #artprocess
