I was wondering how you learned the Phu Tran rose????

Phu generously taught it to me directly, years ago. 3 versions.

And i'm guessing your not allowed to send me the instructions?

I don't have instructions. It's in my head. For a time, I was able to teach others; but after the whole internet incident (before this happened, he openly shared and was eager to teach his new creations), Phu asked me not to teach it. Since he went out of his way to teach me, and as a friend, I am obligated to respect his wishes.

Hopefully things change and he'll go back to working on official diagrams to share.
