Thanks so much you guys :-)

BTW, Carson I actually did use tulip paints. They are cheap and good. As for the shineys, I just used pearlescent fabric paint. I thought rhinstones might be too much (plus they fall off) so I just dabbed a few shiney dots here and there.

Shade n Shadow, I adapted  some traditional mehndi designs in a book I have.

Coolbeans, as for the paintbrush, I just used a couple of cheapo acrylic paintbrushes.

Thanks again for  your opinions and questions! Good luck guys, I'm sure your jeans will be awesome! Be sure to post pics here if you do some of your own so I can gush over them!

You know, Speak of The Devil! I had just bought a henna Tattoo kit from Goodwill (it was originally one of those Barnes & Noble things), and, besides decorating my own skin, I could use some of the patterns on clothing

does anyone know an online source for henna? And if you need a special kind or something like that. I don't know much about it, but I think it's great for jeans.

I don't reaaly know of any specific web sites so far, but you can always type "henna" or "mehndi" in any of the search engines.

Henna is a paste that is usually just for staining hair or skin, I don't think it's strong enough to dye clothing, or at least dye it very well. I used designs typically drawn on the skin with henna, but exectued them with fabric paint.

As for obtaining henna if you want to use it for your skin, make sure its result on your skin will be brown. anything else (like black) is unnatural and often has harsh dyes that can cause very bad reactions. Traditional henna is made from the dried and ground leaves of the henna plant, and the other ingredients vary depending on who you talk to (family recipies for henna are prized secrets!).

I get mine from an exotic food market, where they sell for around $1.50 a tube. Kits are usually about 9 times that much, so watch what they're charging! Wink

Wouldn't it be easier to apply if the paint was in a tube with a straw like thing to draw it on? I'd like to try, but I'd probably mess it up horribly if I did it with a brush. Does anybody know where I can get a bottle that works like that?
