I don't have these particular ones, but have ordered in the past a couple other sets for hydrangeas and ended up never using them - I'm really picky when it comes to hydrangeas and I have yet to find a cutter and veiner that create realistic hydrangeas. I keep going back to making hydrangeas as pulled (?) flowers and use a veining stick to get the right impression. You might want to consider that, if that helps, and then you wouldn't have to buy a cutter set.

Thanks for your reply ruthi! Would you mind sharing how you make the pulled flowers? I've watched YouTube videos on different pulled flowers but is there something that you do differently for the hydrangea? Do you also use the veining stick for the leaves? Thanks!!

I have one from Nic Lodge. I think First Impressions made the mold for it.

Scott Clark Woolley's cutters and veiners make gorgeous hydrangeas (and all other flowers, for that matter)!

The only thing I do differently is that i make four petals instead of the standard five and i add texture with a veining stick. I make the leaves and impress them with a regular veiner for hydrangeas - the silicone ones. HTH
