   my gnome named larry, of course!

the brand paper i used

being stupid and all, i accedentally found that some black construction paper can act as henna but its a little darker in color than actual henna...all you do is cut it out in the shape you want, put it on your skin where you want it, and place a wet (not to dry to the point that theres no water left, but not dripping) paper towel and place it on the construction paper. leave it there for about 2-3 mins and peel it off...so far mine has lasted about a week, though it has faded slightly due to washing.

HELPFUL THINGS TO KNOW
-comes off with nail polish remover/rubbing alcohol
-dont move it while its sitting! will caouse shadow effect
WARNING: will stain reg towels/clothes so be careful, use papertowels/napkins

please post pics if you tried this!

I found a roll of black paper that worked great! I gave my stomach a handlebar mustache.
