I had tried many different methods of cone-rolling before I tried
this one and stuck with it. It took me about 12 cones before I could
get the hang of it (only about 3 of these I actually put paste in).
Anyway...it helps to put the paste in and use the cones so that you
can see what changes you'd want (hole size, cone size, etc). No henna
got on my hands when I used this method...so nice! I have actually
found that I like tiny cones...about 2 inches long.

: I believe there are photos of Heather's method on the Henna Page
: Journal but I may be able to describe it here (it is actually cut
: pasted from an earlier message I posted):
: For this technique you use a triangle. Imagine that the point
: opposite the straight side of the triangle is point A, and the two
: side points are B (on the left) and C (on the right). Lay the
: triangle down on the table in front of you with point A closest to
: you. The tip of the cone will be on the long side of the triangle.
: Bring point C (on the right) down and in towards point A, curling
: inward. Grasp the plastic where points A and C join with thumb
: and forefinger and bring point B around the cone so that it
: comes around and lines up with A and C. In your fingers you will
: have all tips with B on the bottom, A in the middle and C on top.
: Pull and slide these around until you get the tip you want but you
: want to keep the points together. Once you get the tip you want
: fold all three points down into the cone and then fold that end of
: the cone down and tape it. No need to tape the seams, just the
: top opening of the cone.
: This gives you a cone that is much less likely to leak than one
: created with a square and doesn't need as much taping.
: Hopefully the photos in the journal article will make the process
: a little more clear than my description. If you can't wait, see if
: you
: can find a website or a book on pastry techniques as they
: usually have a description with drawings on this cone-rolling
: technique.
