Homemade Henna hand tattoos



My daughter is studying Art at school and for her current project she's doing a study on hands, she wanted something a bit different & came up with the idea of doing a henna style drawing and I was the willing guinea-pig and then I had a go at doing one on her. The top hand is mine with Georgia's drawing & the second hand is my drawing on Georgia. We had good fun doing them and guess what we used? Good old ProMarkers!! We started off with a fineliner but it kept stopping, the oils in the hand I guess weren't doing the ink any good, but the PM kept on going, only problem is, we realised after Georgia had finished my hand that it's permanent ink!! Eek, so don't know how long it'll stay on for! I'm doing a craft fair tomorrow & Georgia's helping me, but at least with our hand art we'll have a unique look about us - either that or we'll frighen everyone away LOL.

Very creative and arty! Like mum like daughter! LOL at the permanent ink - so long as you don't say "will you cross my palm with silver?" at the fair, I think you'll be okay ;o)
