When I do this I use just straight gumpaste. Roll it thinner than thin. No. thinner than that. I want to be able to read through it. I use a Jem strip cutter (the smallest one) and make sure that the cut leaves clean edges. Put the strips between two pieces of thick plastic that has been sewn together on one side. This will keep all the rest of the strips from drying out while you are working with just one. I use a regular quilling tool like you would for paper and start rolling. When I am making lots of the same shape I make sure that I have enough time to do however many of that shape that I will need in one sitting because for me at least, I find that I get into a rhythm and my shapes will be slightly different from one sitting to another. If it is commercial work , it won`t matter that much (it also doesn`t have to be as thin). If it is show work it will matter alot.
