Trying something new to me, I decided to use some of the air-hardening clay I have and make some little leaf dishes. So far it has only been used for veggies and food for the dolls house!
So, I rolled the clay out quite finely, like pastry!
I then pressed the leaves into the clay and allowed it to dry thoroughly – this took a couple of days (I turned them over every now and again). I ensured the leaves were slightly curled up at the edges to help the ‘dish’.
I left for a few hours and then peeled off the leaves and allowed the clay to dry completely over the next week.
Once I dry I painted them in white acrylic first and then with gold paint…and I quite like the effect. Then a coat of clear glitter paint.
I stuck little pads to the base so they stand on a hard surface.
They are just the size to hold a little trinket or leave your watch and jewellery in over night.
If you wish to hang them and make a mobile or some hanging ornament ensure you make a hole before the clay hardens.
Thanks for reading, back soon
