: the work from the merchants and theirs did not seem as dark as
: mine was. not sure why.
Their recipe, and the amount of time the paste was left on,
and "aftercare," I assume. As well as a person's natural tendency for
color. To be fair to the merchants, I saw some *amazingly* dark
stains, as well as some really beautiful designs. I also saw that
lots of people had done their own henna... I've spent years promoting
this at Pennsic, it was so nice to see.
I have to say, the terp recipes seem to fade extra-fast at
Pennsic... and while my dip-hennaed fingers faded nicely, my dip-
hennaed toes/soles look like a weird skin disease! Fortunately there
is still a pale orange stain under the dark blotchy stain (I dipped 2
or 3 times).
: Pennsic was awesome!
It was! I had a nice break, with no classes to teach nor henna party
to herd. There's much to be said for lounging in the shade!
