Are you talking about the two-sided veiner? You can roll your fondant or gumpaste fairly thin. Let the cut flower sit for a few minutes so the fondant firms up a bit. Place the flower in the veiner and press very gently - hardly at all. Open the veiner and flick the flower out with the tip of a cocktail stick. You can also lightly dust the flower with corn starch. Don't dust the veiner, otherwise the cornstarch may fill in the veins.

I dust the two-sided veiners with pearl dust on a large makeup brush. Gives them a beautiful sheen and prevents sticking.
