Default trouble with organza...

Hey ladies,

I know there are quite afew threads around about the peony style flowers. Well today I bought some organza to give them a go. Just been mucking around a bit and I seem to have trouble between JUST singeing the ends and then it curling up too much and melting into holes.

My candle seems to tempremental as I can hold the organza the same all the way around and it just does its down thing.

I've quite a few tuts about doing this and they are all basically the same.

Just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers or something. I know a few of the ladies on here make the flowers.

Thanks in advance

Nylon organza is great for pettiskirts, but not so good for the organza flowers. I *can* get it to work, but it is more.... shabby looking. Polyester organza is a bit more stiff and behaves more predictably when heated over a jar candle or small candle in a holder. Use the indirect heat from the flame that is contained in the jar near the flame, but don't get too close =).

Does that help at all?

Mmm I don't think it is Nylon as it is quite stiff.

Just tried another 'complete' flower and it doesn't look too bad. It probably doesn't help that it's night here and I don't have a good light (yet) and I'm working with light pink organza! haha I only got one maybe one or two small holes on the sides but I'm happy with it. I'll have to post a photo up when I can get one.

I think my problem was looking at something only half finished...I need to learn to put everything together first. Thanks for your help
