The tip on the greater angle has really helped. as a result though I need to drop the initial milk from higher otherwise it whites up too quick. I am getting more separation in the leaves but they quickly get more narrow that I want.

your pictures have been inspiring...

Hello JohnLyn,

I am happy about your results - pretty sure you are getting more and more better!!
I know the thing wiht the narrow leaves from a lot of people during their advancement. To control your speed is the next step you have to take, but that´s all practise and a lot of feeling.

All best and I keep the fingers crossed!

Thanks for your tips so far. They have greatly improved my rossetta consistency and control. Tipping the cup so much really helps. aside from practice and guidance... the key of course, do you have any other tips to improve leaf separation?

Speaking about separation... this was just done today.

Hello JohnLyn,

I am sorry for my late answer. I was busy on a fair.
A tip for the separation of the leaves... you have to move very slowly from the right to the left and back - don´t hurry and don´t be afraid that the cup gets more and more full. During the movement to the side get constantly to the back. For the beginning and the practise: just try to produce a few leaves but big ones. And keep the milk in the can in a harmony consistance (liquid and foam).

Hope this helps a bit. Good luck and I keep the fingers crossed.
