When I got Temptu, I didn't get the kit. I asked what their minimum
wholesale order would be for just bottles of Outline Black and some
blue to fake up a woad. I got 15 ml (1/2 oz) bottles and 60 ml (2
oz) bottles. Gwyn's piece, ankle to buttock, wrist to shoulder and
down the boob used up precisely 3 ml of outline black. I'm loking at
the price list now .... the retail on the 1/2 oz is $16 (that would be
your least economical way to purchase it). Therefore, I used about $3
of Temptu, to do Gwyn's piece, if purchased retail in the least
economical way. If I was working from the 4 oz size bottle priced
retail at $67., the piece I did on her would have cost $1.60.

As far as I can see, the $1.60 to $3 Temptu range for full leg and
full arm coverage is comparible to what I'd lay out in making my own
terped henna. It's at

To get to their price list .... go to link below, and navigate first
to "shop", to "Amusement Biz", to "Paint on Parlor", to "Select one
and Go" Choose "Paint", then to page 2, and there's "Outline Black
Body Paint". Click on Outline Black and you'll get the price list. I
don't know if that link I just copied will come up right, so there's
the navigation sequence. Anyway, Outline Black's what I've been using
when henna just plain isn't the answer.

If you can work well with India Ink and a brush on paper, you can work
well with Temptu.
