: Seems like the art of henna is moving along the path of large
: body pieces. We are seeing more and more of that here and it's
: getting very interesting.

Tools define the limits of material culture and art tools define the
limits of artistic expression. When you have a carrot bag in your
hand, and home-terped henna that's affordable ...... BIG pieces are
a logical step. And WOW are they a joy to do! Jac bottles don't
facilitate big work ... too much time, hand cramps, refilling .....
and pricey pre-mix is too much out of pocket to do big work.

Try expanding out! You'll love it! I did several of Alex's Spellstone
has large body section patterns in henna ... they looked fantastic!
Even her smaller patterns, expanded out to fill a whole leg or back:
beautiful! (link below)
