A few weeks ago an Indian woman named Anurita was visiting in Kolkata with her husband, and taught all us girls how to do mehindi. It took several hours for about 3 days, but it was super fun! I practiced a lot so that when it was time for the real deal I wouldn't do a terrible job. I did Laura's hand, and she did mine!
|Practicing with a regular pen first!|
|Finished with my first mehendi masterpiece!|
|Our wonderful (patient!) teacher!|
When Landon saw my hand all done up, he insisted he also needed some mehendi.
I just used a marker on his, so it kept washing off. So for several days he'd wake up, point to his hand and say, "Uh oh! Another fish?" So funny.
