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

Here it is!!!. after so many requests for a cone rolling video. i have written a bunch of tips below to get cones like the ones i get. . . cone rolling tips: 1. i use a 20- 25 micron thickness cello. i've found they give you the thinnest tip to work with. 2. i cut my cello sheets 9 inches x 6 inches . i've found the rectangular shape to be ideal for me. 3. i roll my cones with an open tip. i used to roll them closed and cut it. i found that cutting the tip of the cones makes the henna paste curl up at the tip. especially if the snipping of the cello at the tip has been done at an angle or so. hence i roll the cones open now. 4. i use a 0.5 mm pencil lead to roll my cones open. i found that 0.5mm measurement was ideal for me. pins of that thickness are hard to come by, so i just use a pencil lead. that process has been demonstrated in the video. you may even use a gauge wire of 0.5 mm thickness or any other thickness for that matter. since i use these leads, i know my cone tips will be the same thickness all the time. i remove the pencil leads before filling the henna. . . these are all the things that i learnt through the years and what i am comfortable with. i remind you. this is not the only way to make a cone but this is how i do it. you can experiment and find out what suits you. may be one year later i will post something that is totally different from what i do today. we all learn things in time. i hope you find my video informative. . . 💗💗💗 #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

Close up of something that i did a while ago. this was my first attempt at videos. i was pretty nervous and my lines were wobbly. i'm really glad to see how far i've come. . . 💗💗💗 #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

Part two of the finger design. and the last bit shows the completed design. tip: i don't know of you noticed me drawing a border around the finger. that way the finger design looks much neater and cleaner. . . 🎬🎥 video courtesy @arjun_dharan . . 💗💗💗 #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

@hennabydevakysdharan - today i would like to talk about patience with you guys. i believe nothing can be achieved in life without it. everybody aspires to become something great but forget the most important thing. patience!!! in relation with the henna artform (which i believe is why you are in my account) patience is the key to achieve good skills. my initial works are cringe inducing. i'm glad i had the patience to keep at it and work on my skills. it is the mental factor and practice is the physical factor for gaining good skills. it is just not the wait but also what you do during that wait. get your cones out!!! doodle something. give yourself time to grow. you are the only one standing in the way. trust me!! practice everyday. you will be amazed how different your work will be after a week. sometimes it will take years to get into henna professionally. yes!! years. so do you have it in you to be patient for years and still have the same love for the art? . . 💗 💗 💗 #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

Whatsapp 0091 8111951546 or direct message for henna appointments in sohar(oman) . . henna for a lady in sohar. . . omani henna tip: most people like doing henna sitting on the ground with their legs folded. it was difficult for me to do that in the beginning but now getting the hang of it. i was always used to doing henna with hands on the table. there are so many things that are different here but you know what? we are humans. our body adapts. just a few days back i couldn't even imagine sitting on the floor and doing henna. it did slow me down at first. now it is a piece of cake. . . for more henna facts from oman keep following me for the next few months. . . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan
