ETA: I forgot to add that in my pendants I've found that adding the leaves at the same time as the second petal layer makes them a bit more visible but on marbles I usually do them in a separate step. Also wanted to add that I learned how to make flowers from a class with Sabina Boehm. She's fantastic and worth every penny if she teaches near you!

Sorry to be so thick... but which petals do you lay down first - the ones on the inside or the outside?? I really appreciate these tips!
