How do you form your individual blossoms? (Not wired). Do you just put them in a flower former or what do you use to get the cupped look?

You can use a ball tool and press on the centre of the flower that you have cut out. Make sure you have a piece of sponge under it so that you don't tear it. You can dry it that way on a piece of parchement paper or you can put it in a flower former.

I used small bits of foil for mine. I used the veiner tool to dent in the foil, then placed the flower on and used the veiner again. Pain in the butt, but they did come out very nice.

I had wondered about just using the ball to indent the center & leaving them, but thought they might not set before drying. i'll try it though. If it doesn't work I can use the foil method
