Default ***help with ranunculus flowers...please!!

So I've been playing around with the Ranunculus Flowers from the last buy and all my turquoise, most of my red and some of the cream, pink and brown are smashed and don't have that cup look like the other. How to get them to go from THIS...



Back to the cup shape




Anyone can help I'd appreciate it. I have around 50 flowers like this and I'm so frustrated...

did they come like this? If so wow that does suck. I would try steaming them and shaping them back. I know I've read on different threads that some HG's steam their flowers to gt the shape back maybe this will help?

I noticed that all of my pink ones were more flimsy than my other colors! Are yours this way too? I bet it's a different material than the other colors and this may be why they aren't staying in shape. I hope the steaming works for you girl!

Yes my red, turqouise, dark purple and one of my pinks were really flimsy

you can see in the pics that they dont have the same shape but they are not awful when you take them apart and re glue them.

Yeah they came that way. When I got them I dumped them all out, spread them out on the floor so they could breath because I was going to be gone for a week. They've been sitting out for awhile now...grrr

I steam the mis-shapen ones. also when you take them apart make sure to alternate petal lines(make sense?) If you need more help lmk I can post apic or 2.

that sucks that they came smashed like that.
I think maybe steaming them facing down should help.
