: the coffee shops where I henna and get a free sample and see how
: they like my work. She has already met me for this and I gave her
: about $15-20 worth of henna.


: told her it would be $400 because that is A LOT of work when it's
: very intricate and I know I'd be there about six hours. Now instead
: of saying, "Okay let's just do feet and hands, then" she's saying she
: doesn't want the henna at all.
: What gives?

She's cheap. I understand that you want to show her that you are a
good artist, but I think you may have spoiled her with the freebies
and now she expects you to give her a break on the price. Maybe next
time you should do simpler designs and the show pix of your past work.
It's like wedding caterers. Sure they will give you free samples, but
they sure as hell aren't going to give you a whole cake!

Your price isn't unreasonable at all. I'm not saying that you can't
negotiate, but don't prostitute yourself either. I'd go as low as
$300 and then just leave it to her.
