Lots of questions about slinging at an India Festival

In February, I'll be setting up at our annual IndiaFest. It is
HUGE, and the longest lines are always for the henna artists. The
booth fee is $275 for a one day festival. I know I can make that
back, though I don't know how much extra I'll make. I'm really more
concerned with getting a foot in the door with the local Indian
community. I'm sure to get the normal requests for bracelets and
simple designs, but I also expect to get a lot of requests for full
hands. I'd like to find some full hand and feet designs that are
not as intricate as the Navneet stuff, so I can still turn them out
in less than 15 minutes. Do you think I can do an adequate job of
bridal designs with a .5 j-bottle, or should I really work on
practicing with the cone? Another henna artist, one from Orlando,
has offfered to split booth fees with me to work at the same booth.
I'm very territorial, and wary about wroking with someone I don't
know. I'm sure her designs are great, as she's been doing this
longer than me...I'm just a little paranoid. Any suggestions?
