When I mix my henna for the J-bottle I always make it a bit thinner
then for rolled cones. I've had to experiment with the paste to get
this right (lots of blobby henna horror stories and achy hands).

Then when I started adding sugar to the paste, I found that I could
make the paste thinner with a stringy quality. Many people add
honey or an egg for the stringiness (haven't tried that yet). Keep
playing with your paste to find the right consistency.

Have you tried using a Mylar hand rolled cone?... I can give you
thinner lines then .05 tip minus the frustration of getting the
paste right.

I'm sure others will be by to give you more suggestions.
