  1. Ok, this is how I do it, but there isn't a right way. I tried a few different methods, so you can judge for yourself if you like any one of them better. First, materials: The top tool s a firm color shaper chisel. I like it to hold against the putty while I'm thinning the petals with the metal shaper to get a nice sharp thin form. I don't have a picture of this because I only have 2 hands. Next, get something the putty won't stick to like plastic card or glass. Use it to form your shape. Here I've made some little balls about the right size out of putty and flattened them with the metal tool. then just make flowers... Kidding! But I had to get in the groove, so these are vaguely what we're going for. First, start making the start shape with the metal tool. Use the vaseline or water to keep it from sticking to the tool. Here's a progression of the star shape. Don't cut all the way through the putty. You're going for an overlapping pattern. Five or six petals is probably enough to get the sense of a rose. Now we're doing the petals. It's a pushing-pulling motion using the metal tool and often the chisel to hold the petal in place. the easiest way I could work it out was to pull the petal down and out, then push it back upright, making sure to maintain the overlapping petal pattern were the starting edge is inside the next petal. smooth them out nicely to make them pretty. Sort of doneish. more coming...
