Default Re: burned singed flower

Beautiful flowers, what kind of material is that on the last flower? Can i only use organza?

this is one technique where it doesn't have to be perfect. Some materials burn faster than other or catch heat faster, always test a sample piece before you singe your circles.
I attached a few of mine so you can see some that are slightly singed to some that have crispy edges.
good luck and practice does make perfect.
