That's my first real cone design!!! YEAHHHH!!! I'm so happy with
myself this morning I could just roll over and giggle.

Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and made myself expand my
applicator "repertoire" by using cones. (And every epiphany hereafter
can be followed by a resounding "...We Know" by you regular cone

Carrot bags were the first type of cone I tried. I sucked ass with
them, and I did again at SSW, so it's a discouragement that I let
talk me out of trying rolled cones as well.

*Finally* I decided on giving it a shot, especially after my 1st
attempt at an Erfan (with a jac bottle) was an abysmal, blobby-lined
failure. The cone was a simple clear mylar rolled one (not rolled by
me, that will be next once I get out and get some holographic
wrapping paper).

YES the lines are wayyy easier to get eensy teeny tiny. This photo
was taken this morning after wrapping and wearing the paste all night
while sleeping. You can see how it's flaked away in parts, and the
photo isn't as clearly focussed as I'd like, but at least you can get
an idea of how the design came out. It is a (modified!) man's design
for Rammadan. I left off the arabic (b/c I was tired, and ran out of
room anyhow). As it was, this took 45 minutes -- much longer than I'm
accustomed to spending but WORTH it for the discovery factor alone.
Hopefully as I get more agile with cones, speed comes naturally along
with familiarity.

Anyhow I was so incredibly jazzed I couldn't wait for it to turn
colors, and had to share right away with my Forum henna buddies.
