I love the Branches Recycled Maxi Skirt, the leaf deign is so gorgeous, seeing it reminded me of mehndi henna designs, and the long maxi length had me dreaming of barefoot summer days, running through the grass and sand.
|The Branches Maxi Skirt that inspired my henna design!|
1. It is easier for beginners to start with a design in mind, you can draw something up, print it off, or even draw on your skin with a sharpie (the sharpie will fade). Look in books, online, or in nature for inspiration. (Soul-flower has a lot of cool designs on their clothing you could recreate with henna!)
2. Your design should sit for 30min- overnight, so be sure to put it somewhere where it wont can be left alone for a amount of time (for example I did my hand I write with, which wasn’t the best idea)
3. After your design starts to dry you can paint over it with a mixture of lemon juice and sugar, this helps the design soak in , and stay wet longer, so it really soaks into your skin and last longer!
4. After the lemon juice you can warm the design with a candle, again to help the design soak into your skin and last long!
Thats basically it! Be sure to checkout the video! And thanks to my sister for sharing!! Let me know if you guys come up with some cool designs!
