I've used both the J-bottle and cones (among other things) and I
really like using the cones better. They are easier on my hand and I
like the fact that I can get right to the end of the cone and use all
the paste I could squeeze out of them :). I get annoyed when I have
to scrape off the paste at the bottom of the J-bottle that I can't
I used to think that I can't produce straight lines with the cones.
But I was wrong. It all comes with practice. Ease of use and speed
comes with familiarity (as Alissa said it ;)).
The work above was done with a cone. The lines may look a little
shaky upon close scrutiny, but on the whole, I think they are quite
alright. This piece was my second attempt doing a Moroccan.
All the work done in my gallery was done with cones. I have been
rolling cones from a square piece of plastic but I rather like
Heather's method of rolling using a triangle piece too. I use clear
plastic (with cutesy prints) for my cones. They come rolled up and
are often used to wrap book covers (to protect the books) or
giftwrapping. They cost 90 cents a roll and I can get around 20 - 30
cones from a roll, depending on the size of the cones.
