Miniature Holly and Rose leaf cutters (for use with plunger). Can also be used as embossers.
These cutters are designed to create lovely mini rose leaves and holly leaves which can be used to very quickly create a large number of small leaves. Can also be used as embossers.
To use as cutters: Roll out paste VERY fine using cornflour for dusting. Ensure that the paste is not stuck to the board and moves freely, also that the top surface is not sticky. Press firmly onto the back of the required cutter, slide the cutter backwards and forwards and then release the cut piece using the FMM plunger (or the end of a fine brush or cotton bud if you don’t have the plunger!). Try occasionally brushing Trex on the cutter surface with a tooth brush to help ensure the paste does not stick in the fine details of the cutters.
To use as embossers: Simply press into freshly rolled paste. Can be used with sugarpaste, marzipan, chocolate paste or pastillage. It is important to complete the embossing before the paste begins to skin over. The embossed pattern can be left as a relief design or you can allow the paste to dry and then dust or paint the details.
