Hi all, I have a question for you all. I roll out my paste, cut with appropriate cutter, ruffle edges, but how do I vein the petals with out undoing the ruffling on the edges? All I have is a leaf veiner and the paste has to be pressed down on it, which flattens the petals.
can anyone tell me the secret?

Yes, vein first then cut out and ruffle. (Well that is how I do it anyway, I'm self taught so I could be wrong.)

From the classes I've taken, you vein first and then ruffle as well.

Thanks, I'm self taught too, and I guess it just never occured to me to do the viening first....duh. I mostly do roses and they don't get viened.

yep....that is the way to do it. Vein 1st then ruffle. But I always cut my petal first, vein, then ruffle. Good luck.
