Ha! Hah! I've finally done it. Using Fresh Henna leaves to stain
my hands.
Using a food processor to grind the leaves to a puree and add
some lemon juice. The slush was coarse and quite un-
cooperative. I should have added some rice to make the slush
Tried putting it into a cone and cut a big opening, but no good.
No good at all. The slush comes out in clumps. Lots of fibre lots
of juice. I've terp the slush and left it to stand for about 6 hours.
Tried Dipping my fingers and applying bold designs with a tooth
pick....messy, messy I tell ya.
Kept the slush on for about 1 hour, upon removal, the stains was
bright vermillion. Fingernails were dyed evenly. (WHich doesn't
happens with my previous experience from the paste I've done.)
Now at about 22 hours, the stains are a dark reddish brown
similiar to a good grade henna powder stain.
I was thinking of squeezing out the liquid dye of the henna slush
and mixing them with a neutral powder medium to create a
paste so that I can use it in a cone. . . . experiment if I have time.
