How to draw HENNA DRUM

Zentangle pattern: Henna DrumThe art of Mehandi, “the application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in India”, makes use of a wealth of very simple repetitive designs. Years ago, long before I learned about Zentangle®, I purchased several Mehandi-related books because I was fascinated by the patterns. If you’ve seen any henna tattoos you’ll recognize a lot of familiar cross-cultural motifs.

Henna designs have become very trendy in the Western world too. Vermont CZT® Jane MacKugler constructed this tangle based on a henna design a friend of hers had drawn on a drum, hence Henna Drum.

Jane’s original pattern also has a few tendrils but I liked it when I reached this point, so I stopped. Add a wee touch of shading and Henna Drum gains some nice dimension.

Jane illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Henna Drum, here on her blog.

    Love the design!

  • Jodi

    This is such a pretty tangle!!

  • This is an awesome tangle – and your preview of it is super! I’m hoping (along with a few other ladies) that she will post a little bit bigger version of the “how-to” as it’s a bit hard to see the steps, being so small. (When did I get so old I need tri-focals anyway?? LOL!)

    Thanks for another great tangle! :)

  • It is BEAUTIFUL!! I love it! I fell in love with Mehndi when I lived in India for 11 months as a Rotary Exchange Student (1987-88). I’ve been playing with it lately and would love to become a paid henna artist. So, I instantly clicked on the link when I saw the name of the tangle. So pretty! Thanks for sharing!
