Help! Rajastani twilight clogging

 Hello to all

I mixd my rajastani twilight henna with lemon juice and my terp.  Strained through a stocking  and filled my cones.  When I went to use the cones, they kept on getting clogged.  I thought by straining I would avoid or minimize clogs.

It was a lot I couldn't draw even a line without having to push out a clog or stick a pin into the cone.  

I was so disappointed and so was my client.

Please help I am not sure what to do

Thanks

ummaisha,

Maybe your paste needed a tiny bit of thinning?  Or sugar to make it more pliable? Sorry to hear you were so disappointed.  Have you tried again, with a new batch/new cones?

 So I tried another batch of raj twilight and I am happy to say that the results were much better.  I double sifted then mixed and then strained.  Whew it's was a lot of work but well worth it.  Love the color. 

Thanks

Yay!  Glad to hear you're happy.  People really seem to have fallen in love with the dark stains Twilight gives.
