Hi Dawn,

The new batch is in. New packaging and new consistency. I am sure
it is the consistency you are interested in. The new KIMIA is ultra
fine...it is talc...and the paste is stringy.

It is staining a bit differently. With the first batch I got bright
neon orange like stain after paste removal...then to a bright cherry
red color...then progressed to a black cherry. Some people got black
berry and burgundy black. With the new KIMIA, the staining is faster
than the last. And the last stained fast but the best stain was after
being left on and wrapped over night for me. This new batch is
staining dark cinnimon immediately paste removal...after having left
the paste on for only about one hour (I have tested for up to three
hours). This dark cinnimon to dark cinnimon/brown color lasts about
6 to 8 hours...then the color turns to a deep red raspberry color.
The test spot on my hand right now has turned a more black cherry
color now. I am going to test it again tonight and leave the paste
on overnight to see the results since that is what I usually do.
These are the results both terped and unterped with cajeput....sealed
with lemon/sugar...wrapped in tissue and then wrapped in plastic
wrap.

But to what I think is your question about consistency...this is
butter. Paul sifted his with a Fred o Matic and reported 99.9% of
the powder came through with a fleck of something left behind.
Javeed put lots of time and effort into getting this consistency and
I continue to thank him for that.

Maureen
