Default Singed Flower material

So I finally tried the singed flower today and LOVE IT. I just used this berry pink organza and it turned out so cute. Even DH commented. And he never comments. So was wondering what other materials have you ladies used for them that have worked for you and what have you learned to stay away from. Just wondering. Will be heading to Joanns to check out their scrap bin for a few odd yds of different materials to try.

Is the organza you all use a little floppy? I picked some up the other night on a whim when I had to run to HL (well, technically I was supposed to be going to WM to get something but HL is right across the street!). It's not stiff like the organza ribbon I have, and I have been practicing making singed flowers, I seem to have a little trouble getting it to cup when in a larger circle.

I only bought a small amount in a couple of colors just in case that's not the type to use, I don't sew so I don't know my fabrics as well as I could, but I am slowly learning!

I find that id you put your thumb in the middle of the circle and singe the ends it makes like a cup, but you have to hit above the edge a little to get it to curve.

You'll get it eventually, it takes some practice.

I have bought two different name brands of organza at Joanne's. One is a little stiffer than the other. (Actually three as they have it on a spool like the tulle but not too many color choices at my Joann..and it is really stiff.) I really like the stiffer (Casa I believe) one for doing the singed flowers but the "softer" one has some really beautiful colors so I do use it too. It doesn't cup as well, and the flowers are a little "flatter" but they are still very pretty. I also mix the two together for a different look. No two of my flowers are ever alike even if I use the same fabric anyway...they never singe exactly the same way. That's what I love about making these flowers.
The pp is right about putting your thumb in the center they do have a tendency to cup better that way. Holding it above the flame works better for me also but be very careful with that...I got a really REALLY bad burn on my thumb, much worse than a hot glue burn :O The more you work with them the more "tricks" you'll pick up.

WOW! I am in love with these! You did an awesome job. Do you have a tut you used for these? I would love to try some of these out! What kind of material did you use for these that make them kind of glittery looking!
