Taco bowls for taco salads

Hi, everyone,  ok, I received my order of large taco bowl molds and armed myself with 5 lbs of masa harina.  My first attempt at the bowls/shells was very very awful. They were thick and took forever to bake to a slight brown since no fat was involved (I guess).

The instructions tell me that I am supposed to roll out the dough very very thin and then transfer into the mold.  Yes, but they didn't say how.

The dough tears, if I am lucky enough to even get it off the plastic wrap which was sprayed with a bit of oil.
