: I got an email from a guy who wanted to know if I could do a full-
: body henna on his girlfriend (and maybe a dragon on his back)...
: I thought it was feasible, but since the weather here never gets
: really warm (esp. near the coast), I usually wrap my designs --
: helps trap the body heat and also keeps people from smudging,
: picking, etc. Can't really do the cotton/toilet tissue wrap with a
: full body job... so I mentioned that I'd once tried liquid latex...
: This guy thought liquid latex was a great idea -- and asked if I
: could use blue since he thought that was esp. sexy... being rather
: naive in some areas, I mentioned that I'd only used latex in a
: context, and it was white, lumpy and not really attractive...
: so he sent me the url to a latex site that has photos of people
: wearing nothing but latex. My husband saw me looking at this
: and totally freaked....he usually doesn't care who I henna, but he
: felt this guy had crossed a line by sending me a site with photos
: latex-clad people...and he gave me an ultimatum about doing henna
: this guy or his girlfriend.
: So I cancelled the appointment.
: The guy was very apologetic, and seemed genuinely surprised that my
: husband would assume he had sinister intentions.
: Sigh. I'd love to do a full-body henna, but I feel that in order
: maintain marital harmony, I shouldn;t push to do this job.
: Sigh. And I missed out doing folks for Burning Man because we were
: moving house the week before the event...
: Oh well. Just did a very enjoyable party of graphic and landscape
: designers. Delightful people and they all wanted cool designs.
: satisfying. Only one Chinese character and not a single panda
: request!
I have found doing a job like that, I use a mixture of elmers glue
and water and seal it that way. I use the hair dryer to dry designs,
then use glue and water, just bab it on and it takes another 10
minutes to dry. it forms a skin over the paste. If you could have
done it at their house, and sealed it with glue, I think that would
have worked. Latex is so messy and hard to work with.

just my two cents wishing I could get more parties (not drunk bashes)
