Since it is not possible for me to do the henna design on my hand and take the photos, I will draw it for demonstration. Yes, another set of my torturous drawings, after the ‘man/bird’ images of T5T post, If you think you can survive looking at the pictures, please go ahead with the rest of the article. 🙂

Mehendi Design

For these henna designs, I have used a few simple motifs. First is the ‘dots’. They are usually drawn in groups of three like the signs for ‘since’ or ‘therefore’

Mehendi Design

They are very handy for filling up blank spaces

Next up is the spiral

Then the checks

which we fill in the alternate boxes.

And of course, there are the lines – arcs, straight lines and lacy waves.

Now let us get on with the design.
First, make a ‘D’ like curve

And fill it up with the checks

Remember to darken the alternate boxes.

Draw another symmetrical ark over the initial one

And fill it up with the sets of three dots.

Another arc

Filled with the spirals

Now make a thin border over the final arc till now

Start filling up the rest of the palm with fans. These fans are drawn by arcs as borders with waves defining the inner space. Add a spiral to the base of the fan and fill up the arc-wave border.

After the palm is filled with the fans, it is turn for the fingers. Make borders demarcating the last divisions on your digits.

Fill up the space in between with the good old dots.

Fill in the tops of the fingers completely and the hand is done. Now we move on to the forearm.

Henna Design

We draw a big fan from one end of the wrist so that the arc reaches the other side of the hand

The space within the arc looks empty. So what? Remember our good friends, the dots?

Henna Design

Make a few more big fans

Now we come to the concluding border of the design. I am using the checks.

And adding a few spirals to add to the total effect of the design

Henna Design

And thus, my gorgeous mehendi design is complete with the help of a few simple motifs (dots, checks, spirals and lines) only.

Now do the other hand and you are set for any traditional occasion.
