I am a fairly new henna artist, (and I have only been lurking on this
page for a few days)
I am a professional designer, and feel very comfortable with the
henna, and applying designs from paper, and from my head. I would
really like to get into doing this for festivals and such, but I am
having a hard time getting started. I have tried contacting a couple
of festivals in my area, and the organizersdo not seem to understand
what henna is or do not think it will fit into a particular festival.
Some art fairs, etc. limit the types vendors of course. But these
things always have face painting and temp tattoos, etc all of the old
boring stand bys. I live in the chicago area, and have not found any
other artists here as of yet. I think if I can just get my foot in
the door....

I would appreciate any suggestions or advice on how to get into
festivals, what are the best types, what equiptment is necessary for
a booth, etc.

Thank you for taking the time.
