Strain your paste, post haste!
How to strain your paste in a hurry!
You may notice that some artists always have a silky looking henna paste that seems to come out of the cone effortlessly, never a clog in site and flawless long lines. Even the most finely sifted henna powder can still have little lumps or dry spots if you don't mix it thoroughly enough, and the occasional larger particles of henna or sediment do tend to show up from time to time. Sifting your own powder is a time-consuming process and you can lose a lot of powder along the way. In my opinion, straining your paste produces the least amount of waste, and you will love the smoothness of your henna. Plus, it just takes a couple of minutes!
That's all folks!
