Keeping paste viable
Posted by samantha on March 19, 2002 at 20:01:34:I have been asked to do a stop and create workshop in a shopping
centre (mall for our USA lot) where there a a bunch of crafts people
teaching passers by their trade, letting them 'have a go'. FOr the
public it is a free event as the crafts people have been paid by the
I have said i will let people make/roll their own cones, add the
henna and seal it up and let them copy or draw their own designs on
paper. They can take a pattern page and the henna cone home with
them; i will henna them if they so wish.
The Arts council has asked me to do a Saturday, Monday and Tuesday
for 2 weeks. I will be making the paste up on friday night possibly a
carrot bag (or 2) full of henna.
I will be making so much up ( it will be terped)as i do not really
know how much i will need. If i have any left over what is the best
way to store Saturdays henna for use again on Monday, preferably with
the same or similar staining power? Normally i would make a fresh
batch each time but i do not want to waste such a large amount if i
don't use as much as i expect.
