°Air Dry Clay
°A large leaf
1.Start with a fist sized lump of potters clay. Review and complete wedging of the clay.
2.Simply roll the clay into 1/4″ slabs using rolling pins and two guide sticks which help you get an even result.
3.Place a large leaf over the clay- facing up so that the veins are down. Go over with the rolling pin to make an imprint.
4.Use the knife to trim around the leaf.
5.Smooth the rough edges with one finger and a bit of water.
6.Lay some plastic wrap, a paper towel or a thin cotton cloth inside of a disposable paper bowl. Lay your clay leaf inside of the bowl and gently press it down to take its new shape.
7.Dry for several days and then paint.
