does anyone know of a video online that can demonstrate doing a reverse shell border? i've never actually seen someone do this (i should've asked my instructor back when i was taking my wilton class). i keep reading instructions on how to do it, but i just can't wrap my head around it. i couldn't find anything on youtube.

ugh my poor brain ... there's a bunch of people explaining it in different ways here:

Some use clock positions and others basically say make question marks and reverse question marks. Would those look different or is it just different ways to explain it?

That is my all time favorite border. My only advice is that it just takes practice AND no matter how many times I have done it, I have to constantly say in my mind:"Right...Left...Right...Left...". If I don't, I just get all mixed up. Good Luck
