I would try CCJ's method first!!! I also thought someone came up with
an ink jet solution, so hopefully they will post it.
Another way, which may be too time consuming to get everything
together and may not work for this particular gig........more of a
really desperate measure!!
Tattoo artists use a pencil called a hectograph pencil. It leaves a
purple mark which can be removed with alcohol without effecting the
henna. You use regular tracing paper and draw the design using the
pencil. You can use this pattern several times. I would trace
several of these ahead of time. This is another reason this method
may not be right for this situation. To transfer the pattern to the
skin, use a clear (good) smelling deodorant on the skin first. The
best tricks I have learned from can control the amount
of color left behind from the pencil by not pressing down very hard
while tracing. It goes quickly. Deodorant, press tracing paper,
If you live in a state where tattooing is legal they should sell the
pencils and they are very inexpensive. If not, internet it.
Hopefully, others will post, there has to be a better way!!
I only do this for my best friend who comes up with these designs,
well I won't go there. Good luck!!
