When the sun dies down and night sky blankets the horizon, the music raises up and the celebrations begin. It's here in the images set forth on this hand painted bangle, which has been created in a style reminiscent of the old world tapestries.

Much of my artwork is influenced by or incorporates some element the art of Henna tattoos.
I decided to upload a few video's on how to make a great henna paste. When I first started to work with henna I scoured the net looking to precise examples. You know step by step. No one site or one video had all the details that I have learned over time in a single spot. So here is my attempt to put the Henna Paste part in one spot. We shall see where this goes from here.... Happy 2009 and enjoy the first installment of "how-to" make henna paste.
Finally, the tattoo work done using the paste created in this video set. At the end of the video, you will see the completed tattoo with the paste on and only 5 to 6 hours after the paste is off. The tattoo will continue to darken for the next several days.
