I purchased a tube of premixed henna along with a small book (on
history, application instructions, techniques, and designs). Its
just called "Henna Body Art Instant Henna Paste". It came in a tube
and I refrigerated it immediately as the instructions said because I
didnt plan on using it right right away. The henna paste was just
plain henna, and was textured like a fine toothpaste. I put it on
with the tip that came with the tube on clean dry skin. I also told
my boyfriend the night before not to use soap or any lotions on his
back. Not like he would but just incase. I let it sit for 3-4hrs
(the instructions on the tube said I only need 90mins for it to
stain). I periodically put a pure lemon juice and (white) sugar
solution on the paste to keep it moist. It said in my book that this
would help it stain better. I didnt cover/wrap it because I didnt
really know how and I didnt want to wreck the design. I removed the
dry henna paste with a dull butter knife.
