Rice paper is delicate and only needs a QUICK dip in warm water to soften. Do not “soak” it because it will break down too quickly, making rolling harder. Rotate rice paper in bowl of water or quickly immerse it in water for about 2 seconds. Paper will be slightly firm and not fully folding on itself. OK to be a little firm because it will continue to absorb water and will become soft and GELATINOUS. Lay wet rice paper on Ceramic or plastic rolling surface, not wood - it will stick.
