LOVE this! I learned to throw a lid the complete opposite way, probably why I don't make lids. This is soooo much better, great demo, more please, haha!

Nice series! That's a good looking lid. Do you dry it on the bat or take it off immediatly?

I'll bet Tracey and I learned the same way. Can't wait to try this technique instead! Do you have any trouble with distortion when you underwire it? Or do you wait to do that till it dries a bit?

Love it! I only wish I could do it~ I am lid challenged :/

I wait anywhere from a few hours to the next day to cut the lids.
Yes, they are trimmed- see post below.
This is such as easy way to make lids- but it took me awhile to get it right and not make them too peaky....
