Just in case anybody is interested I figured I'd share the info. Dd wanted to do some henna art on her skin and I picked up a kit from ShopEco that was for hair, but it's body art quality henna. It turned out REALLY well. I'm going to try to post a pic eventually, but it was quite easy to mix up and use and dd had a blast with it. I'm thinking it'd be a great idea for a teen girl's birthday party.

Here's a pic of dd's arm and hand that she did herself. This is just after the henna paste dried and came off, so it got darker since then, more of a brown than orange.

I never understood the whole "drawing on your arm" thing haha... But its something neat for the younger teenagers to do I guess. She did a good job!

Looks awesome!
It is actually called Mehndi- it is an Indian tradition for weddings. The bride gets her hands done and cannot do any housework until the ink wears off. Sounds perfect to me!

Oooh, I like that tradition lol.

Just fyi for others too, the kit came with 2 x 100g pkgs. of henna and we only mixed up one of the pkgs. and we still have tons of it left in the freezer. One 100g pkg. could probably easily do 20 people, so the boxed kit will last dd quite a while, even if she goes a bit crazy drawing on herself lol.
