Henna Design for Wood & Paper : Guidelines for Creating Henna Art at Home


So now let’s get into some of the guidelines
on how Henna works on various objects. Starting with wood normally when you choose a wooden
object you make sure that it is a pores surface, unpainted, unvarnished. Usually you can find
this kind of wood at a craft store. It is just plain unfinished wood with a smooth surface.
We want to make sure also that you don’t use any Henna made with any added essential oils
or citrus element like lemon. Because it would effect how the Henna stain remains on the
wood. The essential oils tend to make it bleed a little bit into the outside of the design.
So just make simple Henna with water and Henna powder. For paper the same thing and you might
want to choose a paper that has a little bit of a surface to it that is slick so it is
not to pores so the henna does not soak into the paper and ruin the design. For fabric
you can use natural fabrics such as cotton or this is the burlap type of a fabric. You
can use polyesters or fabricated styles but it works best on a thicker fabric that the
Henna would not soak to much into.
