    Hmmm. Interesting. I usually lay it colder.. I'm actually laying these while warmer because the gold fume causes the stringer to curl and not stick to the glass. Once laid, they really dont seem any different, but this is something I havent tried correcting so I'll do that on the next one thanks!

    Nah, nah. See, I meant to do that.

    Clear curling in, or down if you will, gathering at the end of your stringer...do you layer inclear ...like around the stringer...could be that? It has to be clear, imo.

    Nip the end of the stringer.

    Based on the quality of those I really shouldn't be trying to give advice, much better than my flowers.

    Not super hot, I lay them fairly cool too, I was just wondering if due to temp, perhaps the stringer was not imbedded Into the clear and was lifting up at a small point in the center of the petal line causing the hollow part. It’s just wondering outloud; I don’t have the actual solution/reason.
