Default Re: How to take apart ranuluculus (spelling?)

I actually start gluing them together before I take the flower apart. There's 2 layers, then the plastic things. So what I do is hold the flower upside down, glue the first 2 layers together (this would actually be the bottom of the flower). When the glue is cooled and the layers are together firmly enough, take the bottom 2 layers off, and proceed to glue the next layers together, set aside, and continue until done. You can wait until all the layers are separated and glued together to assemble the whole flower or put each of the glued layer stacks together as you go. Just remember to NOT line the petals up...stagger them so the middle of one petal is between the ends of petals on the layer on top of it. Does that make sense? (the more I read I read the more it doesn't even to me!)
