Hello out there! You all have given me such joy!! I have been a
semi-silent admirer of this site and read the postings almost daily.
I am very excited to have found you because over the last year I have
bought some of CCJ's materials, looked at the beautiful designs at
the various web sites linked here and have practiced, practiced,
practiced. I guess I have done well enough, I have been asked to
sling **tee-hee, I love this jargon** henna at a Bar Mitzvah. My
first, real *paid* henna gig!!! YIKES!!

I have always bought premade paste, and I am terrible with guessing
how much henna I will need. This party is for MANY teenagers, only
motifs and partial armbands have been requested. I don't know how to
gage dry henna, to how much henna paste I have. What is a good rule
of thumb. By the way, I asked the same question of the folks at
Castle Art, but my email has been returned. HELP? And I am really
scared to make my own, I have TOO MANY recipes and I am very confused
on the simplest recipe that will produce the best stain, without
complicated ingredients.

I know everyone has their own opinion, can get a list of the best
grade of henna? I am willing to pay the price for a high grade
henna. I just kinda need someone to hold my hand...
