Carrot bags hold a lot of henna, and you can cut open the tips wide to make heavier lines. Once you get the hang of using a carrot bag, you can draw BIG graceful henna patterns. The design above took about 3 minutes.
If you have a hot day and a sleepy person, quickly sketch on them with a watercolor pencil to make the layout. If you have some guidelines, you can henna more quickly.
Use your carrot bag quickly, with motions like drawing with a big stick of sidewalk chalk, or a computer mouse on a very big mousepad. Relax your arm and guide the cone from your wrist and forearm, not from your fingertips.
You'll be done very quickly, before your person wakes up! I did Zimra's leg in 20 minutes, start to finish. Because the lines had generous terped henna and it was a hot day, she just left the henna on until it fell off, and got very dark stains that lasted over 2 weeks.
