I also tried a mask, and i noticed another problem- The henna moves!
I did a design on the back of my hand, put the mask on it, and the
mask actually re-hydrated the henna to the point that it looked like
i had just applied it! This was before the mask had the chance to dry
very much, so it slid all over the place! I managed to keep it from
doing much more damage, but when i took it off in the morning, the
designs were all blurred, and the color was rather light.

: : Do you have peel off face masks in the USA? surley you must.
: : Ater applying the henna and the L/S i wait until it is dry and
: : gently apply the face mask onto and just over the edges of the
: design
: : and then wrap it in Micropore or whatever the person wants.
: Yes, we do, and I've tried this (it was the night I forgot to
: unstick the lid of the new skin before hennaing my hand... I
: open it, so I had to scrounge for fixatives! I ended up using hair
: spray and face mask. :-P). btw the hairspray (it was a pump, I
: use aerosols) worked well in a pinch.
: BUT the masks drive me crazy! I just love to peel them, and when
: they dry on my skin I go NUTS if I can't peel it immediately!
: bonkers. Liquid latex does the same thing to me... I had an
: one night at Sirius as I tried desperately to peel the latex off
: the little bits that were exposed from my wrap... it is super-
: stretchy and fun to peel.
: I suppose I could use face masks on clients, but I figure that I
: can't be the only one out there with a peeling fixation. :-) I like
: to use something with a little less bulk than masks (or latex)
: is why I'm excited about the makeup fixative (and the thought of
: smelling peppermint, and not stinky adhesive sinus cleaner!)
: Zimra, her skin crawling at the thought of peel-off mask drying on
: her skin!
