Henna cone (black), 20g
Drawings made with natural henna can be orange, reddish or brown. However, the color of the drawing depends on the place of the drawing on the body, drying time and individual skin reaction.
Recommended: apply a small amount of henna on the skin and after drying, check whether you have an allergic reaction to henna. After drying and removing the paste from the skin, the design will be a pale orange color. Over the next 48 hours, it will become more intense and eventually turn a reddish-brown shade. It is advisable to avoid getting water on the drawing during the first 12 hours. The drawing on the skin can last from 1 to 3 weeks, it depends on the quality of the henna powder, the type of skin, the place on the body where the drawing is applied, and how well the drawing itself is taken care of. Drawing technique: henna is applied to clean, soap-washed, cream- or lotion-free skin. To better degrease the skin, it can be washed with a cotton swab soaked in alcohol before applying the drawing.
Remove the cone cap. Try squeezing the mail onto the paper first. Make sure that the paste flows evenly from the cone, forms a smooth line and is not too liquid or thick. Henna starts to stain your skin right away, so if you make a mistake or the line is broken, you should clean the area immediately. Do this with a damp cotton swab. If you are a beginner, you can first draw a sketch on the skin with a water-based felt-tip pen. This will make the henna drawing process easier and error-free for you. Small fine drawings can be made with a toothpick soaking it in the paste. Once the drawing is complete, allow it to dry thoroughly for at least an hour, but even better if it can be afforded for 6-8 hours. The slower the paste dries and the longer it stays in contact with the skin, the brighter and longer the pattern will be. The dried drawing can be wrapped with polyethylene film and fixed. Another type of fixation - spraying a permanent hairspray that does not contain alcohol, or hair gel. After drying, the remnants of the henna must be removed with a dry cloth and wiped with a cotton swab soaked in lemon juice.
One cone is enough for a drawing of about 10 x 15 cm, but it depends on how thick a line you draw. An unused cone can be kept in the refrigerator for 5 days.
