Mehendi designs; now and then .. Understanding the Era; an ancient art

How different now a days designs compared to olden days!.. Of course technology improved along with creativity. Interest made it easy. 

{A simple art ; would have seen in Bharatanatyam(red coloured)}



{Little improved version of old art. These designs are applied easily over skin using sticks or brush} 

Henna paste is usually applied over the hand using a plastic cone, a paint brush or a stick. Olden days, there were no cones! People used sticks for applying it. Since home made Henna was thicker than a normal smooth paste, it was easy to apply using sticks. The only difference was design! A very simple design like big dot, plus marks abstract, etc was most famous mehendi designs during those days. Even I enjoyed it in my childhood!


Hope my posts are providing some productive information 🙂
