Sigh...Yesterday was my first time making my own paste (i used the
serious recipe from CCJ) What a mess I made. I know it'll get
easier, but Christ, I'm so frustrated. The paste kept clogging the
bottle, I tried strining it through hose and made an even greater
mess, My first attempt at cone work was a joke...the lines were
uncontrollable compared to the bottle, the cone burst at the top and
now my hands are orange all over. Not the best was to advertise my
work for my gig tonight. I look like I'm in liver failure. In the
end I wasted about half the paste I made. The good news is that
the stain color is beautiful. Does anyone else have a hard time
controlling the lines with a cone? My lines from the bottle, while
not as fine, are considerably straighter. I suppose it's just a
matter of practice. I'd love to get rid of the hand-cramp factor,
so I won't give up yet. Words of wisdom for me?
Thanks for everyone's willingness to offer guidance.
