Cook up lemon/sugar in your kitchen. Pour some sugar into a small, heavy iron pan. Pour in just enough lemon sugar to make the sugar wet. Heat this till its clear and bubbly. Let it cool.
Paint lemon sugar syrup onto completely dry henna with a cotton swab. Be very careful to not disturb the henna pattern.
Blow dry the lemon/sugar glaze so it dries quickly.

Henna Page Artists have favorite Lemon/Sugar mixes and favorite ways of applying Lemon/Sugar:
Bellanoir: I make a simple syrup solution of 1 c
c lemon juice, 1 TBSP honey, and cloves heated til it is a little
and less likely to drip about consitancy of maple syrup. I usually use
cotton balls for LS and glitter gloop. I have also used Natural
spray hair gel, New Skin, and a Mexican Tamarind liquid candy that has
a nice little applicator tip to secure henna designs.
