getting decent stains on hard to dye parts of the body

This morning I did a design on the lower back of a friend. I used
Castle Art henna mixed with lemon juice, cloves and frankinsence
(sp?) oil, did a few coats of lemon juice/sugar over it, then wrapped
it up well. (This same batch gave me killer stains pretty much
anywhere I tried it.) She kept the paste on for six hours, but when
she unwrapped, there was no stain - not even a hint of one. I know
this area is hard to dye, but I thought we'd get something.

I'm mixing up a new batch of henna and will try again later, maybe
Wednesday or Thursday. Any advice on what to do differently?

Thanks much,
