I've been really digging on the two toned look, as of late. I mean, two is kinda better than just one right, lol. It's just that two tones really bring a different interest to a henna design.
I'm aware that there are at least two ways to do the 2 toned look. One way is to do a henna design... Then when the henna design matures you fill in the open most parts of the design with henna. Then wipe it off, thus leaving behind an orangy, more fainter, yet noticeable contrasting stain, like this picture (borrowed from beachcombersbazaar.com) below.
Or Like how I have done. When I do a henna design, then remove the paste after 2-3 hours, leaving behind a orangy fainter henna stain. Then right after that, I go back and go over certain lines again with more henna, Then I seal it, and keep the 2nd coat of henna on overnight. I do this for henna designs that a lot of detail to them. And once I wake up take the dyed henna paste off, and it's had time to oxidize... The stain looks like this picture (below far right)
I will eventually do, the fore mentioned way, to acheive the two tone look. It seems a lot easier, lol. But until then, enjoy this video of a geometric design that I made in to a two tone design :) Thanks for reading :D
