DO NOT USE LEMON SUGAR!

Make your henna up in advance with the lemon/tea/coffee variety of
recipe. Add extra sugar to the mix. I usually use leftover sugar
lemon mix to the henna at the beginning of the process. The sugar
will harden the henna up on the skin. After the henna is dry, expose
the drum GENTLY to a heat source - I usually put my oven on low, open
the door and set the drums on a chair near the open door. Setting it
out in the sun is also good (sun? what sun? i live in seattle!)
Leave the henna on for 7-10 days before scraping - you don't have to
scrape, you can just play the tambourine until it all falls off. But
you should not play the tambourine for the above-mentioned 7-10 days.
With time the henna on the drum will stain darker and darker,
esecially played with the fingers.
