Thanks a lot! I'm so excited I can hardly wait to use this stuff,
I've been dreaming about henna patterns. Is that a good sign or a
bad one?

Thanks,
Nadia

: 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.
