Step 1: Using your rolling pin, roll out your clay on top of the parchment paper. Place your leaves on top of the clay and make sure to gently press down so all of the leaf's details get imprinted into the clay.
Step 2: Using a toothpick or wood skewer, cut out your leaves.
Step 3: To mold the clay into a bowl-like shape, place your cut-out leaves inside a small size nesting bowl (as shown above) to form it's curved edges. Allow the clay to dry for 3 days.
Step 4: Once your clay is completely dry you're ready for the last and final
step. Using your Zibra Round Brush paint (generously) each leaf. You may
need 2 coats of paint depending on how thick you apply the paint. Let
dry between coats.
Optional: We added Rub'nBuff over the paint to give our leaves a metallic finish.
Finally, print out name tags and place inside your finished project and use for place cards at your next gathering!
