You need to pay attention to what is happening, check it often, practice a lot. If the belt edge is too soft, it'll not work, but if it's too stiff,it doesn't want to make that curve, either, it'll cut a sharp corner. You may have to go with a used belt, until you get the ability to "carve" that curve. Again, try any method you feel comfortable with and PRACTICE.
Good to see you posting.
