The Off Switch — How to Avoid Overshooting

The heart design is a close cousin of the monk’s head, except that it is a two-element design. It calls upon the same techniques as the monk’s head, but the final 2 seconds of the heart design requires you to perform a cutting technique away from yourself — from north to south, directly through the centre of the design. Early attempts at cutting through a design might result in spills because employing the ‘off switch’ for a milk pitcher takes some practice. It’s really quite simple, though: To arrest the flow of milk after you complete a design, simply lower the elbow of your arm that is holding the pitcher.
