The different paste shapes are one of the bonuses of the carrot bag,
but they are also one of the factors that make them harder to use. I
generally apply with the seam up so I get the triangle. This gets
more of the henna piled on in one place, which means the part on the
skin stays wet longer and therefore gets darker than a thinner
application would do. It also gives you two different drawing tools
in one- a thin line and a thick. You can get nifty effects by
rotating the bag while applying to vary line thickness.
If you drop a pastry tip in, you get round lines and it's very
precise. I tape around the cut edge and tip using a plastic tape,
usually electrical, which is thicker. You have the problem with any
metal tips that they clog if your paste is not absolutely smooth.
I've been rolling my own cones lately and I get terrific effects.
Fine tip that unclogs easily and ease of hand use. I recommend
them. If you can't figure out the directions in the Journal on the
hennapage, I can sell you some, but they're pretty easy to amke
