Mehndi Missives

Blue Lotus TV

Glitter mehndi: An alternative to traditional henna!

Glitter Traditional mehndi—or henna—is the art of creating a temporary stain on the skin using a paste made from the henna plant. True, natural henna comes in only one color—red/brown—and can last up to three weeks. 

But sometimes, you want something a little special.

"Glitter mehndi" is not true mehndi in that nothing from the henna plant is used, but you can still get henna-like designs using cosmetic glitter or powders on top of liquid adhesive. 

Using this technique, the design is sweatproof and waterproof and, with care, can last several days with minimal wear.

Episode 01 of Blue Lotus TV is on Spreecast!

The debut episode of Blue Lotus TV, "Henna/Mehndi 101", is available for streaming on Spreecast!


This 25-minute show covers all the basics about henna arts, including:

* The history and cultural background of henna
* How henna works
* Who uses henna and why
* The dangers of false/adulterated henna ("black henna")
* Cautions about henna
* What to look for in a henna artist

I hope you enjoy the show! Future episodes will hopefully include some very special guests and will cover topics such as how to make great paste, henna ethics, new techniques in henna and much more!
