The Sprout

1) This is the Sprout.

2) Make a Sprout by swirling a bead of henna, then continuing the swirl out in a long comma.
Sprouts can be clockwise or counterclockwise.

3) Practice your Sprouts!
Practice forward Sprouts, backwards Sprouts, out Sprouts, in Sprouts, alternating Sprouts, mirrored sprouts ... until you can do them smoothly and evenly every time!  This looks like it should be easy, but it really does take concentration!

It takes work to become a SproutMaster!
