Many common terp oils will dissolve the adhesive of cheap tape. Use a
good brand like Scotch and make sure you brace the cone well with
tape. This means don't just tape the seams, but actually put bits of
tape crosswise around the cone to keep it all in.
Hope that helps, but the carrot bags will definitely solve the
problem if this doesn't.

: This has become increasingly frustrating for me. Hopefully the
: bags I've just received will solve it but I'm not sure.
: I use cones to apply henna. I love the cones. I get great lines and
: they're so much easier to control. My problem is that my cones seem
: to be constantly leaking at the seams. Anyone have any suggestions?
: use freezer bags and mounds of scotch tape and I still end up with
: leakage. I also use terped paste so by the time I notice the
: my right hand ends up with lovely little puddles and blotches.
: I'm pretty sure the carrot bags will stop the leakage from the
: and seams but I must be doing something wrong when I'm rolling up
: top or maybe I'm squeezing the cone improperly. What I do is fold
: over the two sides of the top of the cone and tape them. Then I
: tightly roll the top down and tape that. The top is usually what
: leaks the most. I'm usually squeezing the cone from the top. Is
: another way I should be folding it?
: Thanks in advance! -Kelly
