Use your stick/toothpick (whatever you use for those "oops" moments)
and, holding it parallel to the surface of the
skin, mush the henna around. You can even glop a big glob onto the
area then use the stick to fill. the advantage is that you are left
with a more evenly filled area, without huge globs of henna or empty
spots, which then stays on longer with the lemonsugar.
good luck!

: my legs and arms so that I have plenty of goodies to show off, and
: worst nemesis is cropping up like crazy... little "holiday marks",
: or, tiny white spots where I haven't filled in the henna properly.
: My usual procedure is to do the up-down up-down, "z" kind of fill
: lines. Does anyone have any hints on maybe a better way to do
: The last thing I want is a crawful of dissatisfied customers! :-(
