Add more henna powder, a little at a time.

Re: how to save runny paste

 This is why I always mix my paste really thick... to the consistency of stiff mashed potatoes for the standing time. When I add the sugar and the oils later its usually enough to thin it to the right consistency without any additional liquid.

This is also why its so hard to come by a recipe that gives an exact measurement for liquid in paste. It can be different depending on your climate and the particular 'vintage' of henna that you're using.
