How to make a Wibbleleaf

2: You make the WibbleLeaf by wiggling (wibbling) the
tip of the henna cone back and forth and then pulling it away quickly, leaving a little tail.  If you have stringy henna paste, or add monosaccharides to your henna mix, you will be able to pull little tails off your WibbleLeaves.
