My Signature Cone
My Signature Cone
A warm welcome back, appreciative of the love support and time you take to come back and read on. I’d like to use my platform of social media for the right reasons and give all the young ladies a little inspiration and a helping hand into their self-development.
No it’s not easy running a business, no it’s not easy researching day in and out of methods to use to carry out the fine work I do but I’d like to take this opportunity to share my knowledge with you all. I really do hope this and my upcoming blogs are useful for you.
So let’s start off with the basic in creating cones, I’ve put together a step by step guide to follow in creating these master pieces.
To create cones you will require the following equipment:
- Cellophane paper
- Cello tape
- Cut out a cellophane sheet into a rectangle roughly 6×7 inches
- To begin rolling the cone all you need to do is hold the upper right corner of the rectangle and follow by folding it left towards the centre. The centre of the wider edge of the sheet becomes the pointed end of the cone
- Roll and roll, continue rolling the cellophane sheet until you finally form the cone. You may adjust the length and width of the cone as per your desire and requirement.
- When you reach the end, shift the cone, followed by pulling it, to make the opening of the tip as you require. It is recommended to keep the tip as small as a pin hole. If you need a bigger opening the tip can be cut and adjusted later with a scissor. You may add a pin into the bottom of the tip to make it easier.
- Tape along, the little tail of the cone end must be taped properly. Leave one and a half inches from the tip while taping.
- A small piece of tape is to be added around the tip of the cone. This will secure the tip and protect the tiny opening in place. It also prevents any unwrapping and spillage of the paint/henna
- Tape along the seam ensuring the cone is securely closed off, if needed secure from the inside with tape too
- Fill the cone up to a half to two third of a length with paint/henna
- To maintain the consistency keep scooting the paint down the cone length ensuring there is no bubbles/air holes and leave enough space at the top to seal the cone
- To finish of use tape to avoid the paint popping out from the top, to build your cone up use as many layers as you need and then roll over the top of the cone (This is the easiest method for a new starter)
- Once you have rolled it enough to the point It cannot be rolled any more, hold it with one hand in place and seal with cello tape. You can then build with cello tape to ensure it is secure from all sides
