Wow, that looks like it cost a looong time!
martucia's avatar
It did. 7 hours of application and about 6 hrs more to dry.

That's about how I reacted then - taking a look at the clock in the middle of the night.

heeeeeeej. przecudowne! zrobisz mi takie?
przepraszam, że tak bezpośrednio, marudzę wszystkim o jakąś pracę z henną, exillior przysłała mnie do Ciebie :)

To jest do zrobienia, ale jeżeli nie jesteś z mojego miasta, to będzie trochę problematyczne. Jeżeli jesteś zainteresowana, zapraszam do porozumiewania się przez wiadomości prywatne, może uda nam się jakoś dogadać.

Wow, thank you! Now I feel proud of being good enough to put me in the articles ;)
Exillior's avatar
Hey, I'm just waiting for you to post more. =P
martucia's avatar
It's going to happen quite soon, I've got two unpublished works, one of them based on yours by the way :)
Exillior's avatar
The sheer intricacy of this is incredible. :wow:
martucia's avatar
As most of my works, this one was also based on some design I found. However "based" doesn't mean "fully copied" so thanks :)
Exillior's avatar
I know what you mean - after all, some motifs occur over and over in mehndi, so it's not as if you can invent something totally from scratch.

That's the case in all traditional designs. I bet I could come up with something quite fresh on my own, but I usually trade being original for certainty of success.
