Raina Lehto from Zhashki Henna was kind enough to share her recipe for a kickin resist past for Henna!
Raina, I love you, thank you so much for sharing this with us!
Flour. I used whole wheat, Raina used bakers, expiriment and see what works.
Elmers Glue. Raina uses white glue, I used gel glue, both worked.
Mix some flour and lemon juice into a container until you get a mashed potato consistancy. Add glue until you get a texture you can work with. ( careful to make sure you mix out all the clumps of flour.)
Pour mixure into a cone or jac bottle.
Apply your design to skin using the resist paste.
Allow to paste to dry completly.
Smear an even coat of Henna over the design area. You do not want too much or too little henna. I applied a glob and smeared and skimmed it over with a spatula. Like doing drywall
, but on skin.
Allow the henna to dry completly, 4-8 hours is best but since the Henna is thick you can do less time and get good results.
Scrape off the henna and resist.
Follow usual aftercare
Tahdah, you have a kickin resist design.
I warn you, this method is really addictive and fun to play with!
Don't forget to head over to Raina's site and show her some love.
