Sugar is the first thing I thought of. Try more lemon juice to make
it slightly more wet to begin with?
Could be your henna powder is sucking up the liquid. Honey might be
an option for you to try as well.
In the Pacific NW I cant use it as it doesnt let the henna ever dry
enough so in reverse for you it just might be the trick.

: I've had problems with my paste shrinking and cracking when doing
: large design work. Is this normal or a consequence of living in
: humidity and using lot's of sugar? On occasion the stain even
: out "crackled" Any ideas on how to work with it?
: Thanx so much, Lelia
