It is sort of like a pastry bag with a coupler and icing tip but a
lot smaller. What I did was cut off the Luer Lok tip from the glue
syringe I got at the hobby store and pushed it into the tip of the
carrot bag. Then I clipped the tip of the carrot bag and screwed the
blunt needle into the Luer Lok tip. That created a tight seal around
the Luer Lok syringe tip and the carrot bag. Then I was able to have
the comfort of a carrot bag but now I was able to squeeze round
strings of henna paste rather then the funny triangular shape. The
Luer Lok tip is very small and I can grasp it like a pen while
squeezing the carrot bag in my palm. This has made a significant
improvement in my ability to draw especially since I have no artistic
ability. Plus I am able to unscrew the blunt needle tips and switch
between the medium and small needles easily. I have tried the
bottles, glue syringes, and carrot bags and I finally found something
that is the easiest to use.

The picture on website will give you an idea of what the glue
syringes look like. My friend gets them at the model making hobby
stores for 2 to 3 dollars. They come with a 3ml syringe and 2 blunt
needles that are about Ĺ inch long.
