Default Re: Singed Flowers or NOT?

Do you think this is a die? It has to take tons of time.... I usualy do not like singed flowers, but I love these! There is another etsy seller that sells some that I can not tell if are hand made or not, here is a link;
http://www.etsy.com/listing/67274831...ttt_id_5283948
$9.99! There is no way she is hand making these. I know that she uses a lot of primas, but these are not a prima flower.... what do you guys think?

This one looks like it's probably just a circle... I'm not a singed flower pro by any means, but it looks like this material is much lighter, like a polyester lining type weight?

The other is a heavier satin, so it is probalby cut with a wavy edge, but I bet this one is just cut in circles with OLAFA or something... I can cut 4 layers or so of heavy satin with it, so I wouldn't be surprised if you could cut 8 or 9 layers of the think stuff...

...maybe...

Wow! Those are really pretty! I would say that they are definitely singed.

I have to go with singed or she could be using a heat gun. Knowing your material and just where to hold it makes a whole lot of difference. I need to get me one of those OLFA cutters.

i was also gonna go with a heat gun . . . no discolored areas.

i've given up on white singed flowers until i find my heat gun 'cause the lighter just doesn't cut it/i'm too impatient!

edit . . . if you're gonna get an olfa cutter - get the small head one - much easier to use on circles. the big one doesn't handle the curves as well.
