Instructions and Tips for Use
Roll out your paste thinly and use your desired cutter to cut out the basic leaf shape. If you are going to wire the leaf it is best to have a slightly thicker vein down the centre into which you can insert the wire. Insert a glued wire into the cut paste and put together the two sides of the veiner around your leaf lining the wire up with the centre of the leaf. Press together firmly and then remove the veiner.
You can thin the edges slightly with a modelling tool if you wish to give 'life' and 'movement' to the leaf.
If you prefer you can simply use the veiner on your rolled out paste without cutting the shape first. Press together the veiner and trim away excess paste from around the edge before removing the veiner. Thin the edge with a modelling tool as before.
As the silicone is non stick you should not need to grease or dust the veiner unless your paste is very sticky. Try to use as little as possible if you do as this will make the impression less clear.
