: Ok, well, I guess then, my question would be, is there any way to
: know BEFORE you start to use it?
Not that I know of. I'd mix a little and try it on yourself first to
make sure it'll work in your applicator of choice. Unmixed, there's
no way to tell. For example, the Maghriba I sell looks like it has
little slivers of twig in it but I don't know whether they dissolve
or what, because the mix never clogs, while another powder i tried
but ended up not using much looks perfectly smooth but I find little
pieces of twig in it after mixing.
I know the Castle Arts standard you mention(not even the super-sifted)
will go through the tiniest hole I can roll with very little effort.
