You sound like you are on the right path, with just a few tweaks. If
you have until Saturday evening, I would suggest you leave your paste
out at room temperature. You do this to allow the dye to release (in
the first round) and then you do it again after adding your terps as
it needs to release more and oxidize (or whatever the correct term
is!). If you are going to put sugar in your paste it's best to do it
in the initial mixing. Fix the consistency of the paste right before
you put it into your bottle/cone/tube/bag.

As for getting rid of lumps, I have found the best way to do this is
to strain the paste through a stocking before putting it into your
bottle/cone/tube/bag. This is quite easy to do and only takes about
20-30 seconds from start to finish. Instructions are at the link
below along with photos showing how it's done. Feel free to email me
if you have any questions.
