Million ways to "boast" about how you mark and c.lip your queens.
I take the practical way...depends on the circumstances. I don't always have everything exactly to hand
So picking up and trapping legs between fingers whilst searching for marking pen and scissors etc is a big no no. Also had a queen fly away whilst practising this technique...so stupid method in my book.
Usually use Crown of Thorns to keep her in placed, mark her. Release, trap on comb with fingers and clip. Sometime I get lucky and wing comes through the mesh and can be clipped.
Thornes twist and mark tubes are great, no chance of squashing queen, just need to pick up and insert into tube.
