As a mehndi artist, I understand the importance of choosing the right design for a perfect look. Pair Mehandi Designs: For A Perfectly Coordinated Look! features 10 best mehndi designs that incorporate both symbolism and beauty. The chosen theme draws inspiration from floral motifs, geometric patterns, and traditional Indian elements that represent good luck and happiness.
To create these designs, mehndi artists need a few essential materials. The first is high-quality henna paste, which is available in various forms, including cones or tubes. The paste must also contain natural ingredients such as lemon, sugar, and essential oils to enhance its staining power. Other supplies that are helpful include cotton balls or swabs, tissue paper, a bowl of water, and a toothpick or mehndi needle for precision.
The 10 designs in the book are segmented into easy-to-learn components. The first design is a traditional Rajasthani design, featuring a paisley-shaped motif surrounded by intricate details and shading. The second is a floral design that showcases a large flower in the center with small flower clusters and paisleys around it. The third design is a peacock-inspired one, which features a peacock’s head on the palm and detailed feathers on the fingers.
The fourth design is a minimalist chic design with geometric shapes, dots, and lines. The fifth design is a contemporary Arabic mehndi design featuring bold floral and vine patterns. The sixth design is a fusion of Indian and Arabic mehndi designs, which combine flowy Arabic patterns, and intricate Indian details.
The seventh design is a traditional bridal design that features intricate floral motifs and detailed mandalas. The eighth design is a modern Indo-Western design that blends geometric and floral patterns to create a unique and contemporary look. The ninth design is a stunning full-hand design with bold floral motifs, detailed paisleys, and intricate mandalas.
The final design is an elegant and simple design that features a flower in the center of the palm surrounded by dotted patterns and a beautiful lace-like border.
To achieve a clean and precise look, beginners should use a slow and steady hand, using the toothpick or mehndi needle to touch up any imperfections. It is also essential to let the paste dry completely before removing it.
Overall, the Pair Mehandi Designs book is an excellent resource for those looking to create beautiful, symbolic, and perfectly coordinated mehndi designs. With its clear instructions and helpful tips, it’s perfect for both beginners and experienced artists looking to expand their design repertoire.
