Mini Mendhi

Mini Mendhi

So on Monday evenings, the CAC hosts an adult craft night called, appropriately, “One Night, One Craft.” Anything that encourages grownups to act like kiddos is something I can get behind.

The most recent night was dedicated to do-it-yourself mendhi, and I thought “Why not?” It’s sort of like drawing on yourself, and much like Simon, I like to do draw-rings.

The instructor showed us how to mix the henna and coffee into a paste, then create a cone (I swear cone-making was the hardest part) and fill it with the mixture. I sketched out a basic idea – a stylized ‘T’ – and went to town on my arm, trying not to be jealous of my neighbor’s intricate design. Clearly, SHE had the cone thing down pat.

After a messy evening spent with my arm coated in sugar and lemon juice and wrapped in plastic, this was the result!

Now I kind of understand why people get full sleeve tattoos: it makes you feel like a badass.

    That is so cool and I can’t believe that’s your first time trying that. Your design is so lovely and well-done!
