Do you use the ball tool on the edges at all? If so, do you do it before or after you vein the flower? It seems to me that the hydrangea is kind of meant to be cut, veined, and ejected, but I thought it needed to have the edges thinned and ruffled out a bit to make them look more realistic.

Thanks,

Annie

Does it mention it in the directions? I haven't used the Wilton one yet, but I have done them with two other cutter/veiner sets, and you do still run your ball tool around it. You are just hitting the very edge to soften it up.

I didn't see it in the directions. I think it's basically cut, vein, and eject. I like using the tool though because it looks a little more realistic.

So would you use the ball tool after veining?

They're very thin little flowers, so yes, the ball tool should be run around the edges, on the back of the petals, after veining.
