    Better than what I've ever achieved. YouTube is full of tutorials, but somehow - despite the milk appearing to be perfectly textured - I don't get the pour right. Random art results.

    I'll be tuning in to see if you get any good tips...

    (Plenty of old threads here on this subject too.)

      I have found it to be simple and easy to follow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4b7CZ7joUE

      And practice helps a lot...

      Cheers

        The milk is slightly too thick and/or the spout on your jug isn’t sharp enough.

          So I have been checking up on some youtube videos again and have practised 3 litres of milk with choco powder and it certainly seems to be headed towards a better foundation.

            Two weeks in practising a cup or two each day have seen some improvements.

            There are two things I have changed and one is my steaming jug angle so now i am putting the wand down the tip of the jug angled right and i am tilting the jug backwards and it appears to be more controllable and giving me better milk. Second thing is I am now wiggling as soon as i see any white appear on my pour instead of waiting a split second longer for the streak of white.

              What type of Rosetta are you after?
              What you have pictured is pretty good. If you want more definition try slightly thinner milk, slightly larger wiggles.
              Can you put a pic of the jug you have?

                    Finally figured out what i was doing wrong.

                    Fyi, if you're not getting the wings or arms in a rosetta one thing you can do is to pour faster at the start of when you're beginning to draw the white.

                    I couldve finished better but i have achieved getting the wings right.

                      Nice one.
                      Also try larger left to right movements, start pouring into the centre and when the wrap comes around to about half the cup move in towards the wrap about 1cm then move back for the centre stem a bit faster finishing with a full heart at the top.
                      The move in helps the wrap come around further
