What was the paste originally mixed with? It should have some acid,
like lemon juice to help let the dye out.
What was the temperature that the paste sat at before terping? I had
email from a customer who mixed it fine but it was so warm where she
lived that the standard wait time was too long and the dye had
released to the point where it would not stain the skin anymore.
I would use more oil than you did, but it's not scientific yet. I
use about a teaspoon (5ml) to every tablespoon of paste.
Finally, terps take about twice as long, sometimes more, to develop
the color fully. I don't reach peak color for two full days. Give
it a while longer before you call it failure. Actually, I wouldn['t
call it failure even now, if you get the same color in two hours as
with a regular application!
