Thank you for that - very interesting! I noticed how they all had a different technique - I was struggling today trying to make a twistie thick enough, I might try a different way now! :)

They make it look so easy...

I struggle to make twisties at all, so that was really useful. Thanks, Jo!

I picked em out as they all have different ways of getting the result. I spent yesterday making twisties - made nothing usable but it was really good fun

Well, I've tried and tried the 'heat the whole thing, wait a mo and pull/twist' method, and I am getting a little better, but they are still thinner than I want.. If I wait longer, then they end up really short, I have tried twisting first, then pulling twisting.. driving me nuts! The warming at the back of the flame and pulling a bit off at a time method on the vid looks interesting, so I'm going to try that, just as soon as I'm free! :)

I love making twisties - my problem is an even twist. They are either too fat to thin, really bunched up or so spread out it wasn't worth doing!

  Thanks for posting these links.

    I know it all takes time to do but it's good to have it to hand so easily.
