thanks, Man!  I was thinking maybe one day I need to go buy a couple gallons of milk and some super cheap coffee beans and spend a few hours practicing.

btw, the one design I aspire to learn is the dragon, but I want to do it without any etching at all.  any additional tips you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

No need to waste milk. Use dish soap instead.

so finally, I've watched that video.  I think that other than the pouring technique being different from what I've seen before (Schomer's video) and been taught (one day barista course with Heather Perry back in 2008) there's not much there I don't already know...though I've never frothed soapy water.  The technique did look easier for beginner's than Heather's, but that one is pretty ingrained.  My problems, at least for the rosetta, stem from pouring speed, primarily.  Even though, I need work on the rosetta, I still want advanced training on things like multiple rosettas in a single cup and stuff like porticobarista posted in his first picture on this thread.
