I have everything I need…except time! This process takes so much preparation! First you need to prepare the paste and let it sit for 24-48 hours. Then you will need to prepare your skin by making sure it is free of oils and very dry before drawing the design, which you are supposed to be careful not to let crack and keep on the skin for 8-12 hours (for best results). When you are finally allowed to remove the paste, you are supposed to keep the design out of water and sun for 12 hours, as well as avoid using soap for 24 hours. Now who, may I ask, has the time for all of this?! Regardless, I am determined to try it the hard way before resorting to the brown SHARPIE method, which is rumored to be just as nice and obviously far easier! I’ll keep you posted. 7 years ago
