I just love the reverse shell border. I admire you all that can do it. I have tried it before and I am just not good at it. If anyone has any tips or suggestions to help me, I would GREATLY appreciate it. I searched youtube and I couldn't find any videos.
I too love this border, but not sure if i can help. The only thing i would say is practice and when you start out if you go slow it never works for me. I always go pretty fast and concentrate, i tell myself go right then left, right, left. After awhile it comes easy. Sorry, if i am not much help.
Can you make a comma or quote mark?
The swirl goes to the right with a tail then swirl to the left covering part of the tail of the previous 'shell'.
Just keep doing right, left, right, left, right..........
Hope that helps.
I had trouble with those too, and then I took a class from a lady who had been decorating for 40 (!) years. I started by piping a regular shell, and when it had built up almost all the way, she reached over and moved my bag over to the left, and down, without lifting the tip at all. It's kinda hard to describe, but my hand got the "feel" of it when she did that. It was such a small movement. I think I had been lifting the tip and moving it too much. HTH
Thank you all so much. I am going to practice, practice, practice this on a cake board tomorrow. Thanks again for your suggestions!
Here you go, it's at the very end
Thank you serious_cakes for posting the youtube video. The right, left, right, left makes a lot more sense! I am ready to give this a try.
hsterling, I, too, have never been able to master the reverse shell - and I think it's so pretty. You have me inspired to practice this weekend, too!
