Before all the leaves fall from the trees, make a few imprints in your favorite medium! Right now, clay is on my table, so I thought I'd take my heart-shaped cuts in a different direction.
The imprints are crisp and clean and adding the mica metallic powder to the back of the leaf* before imprinting creates even more opportunities for adding color and shine. Bake as directed by manufacturer and seal with a coat of Sculpey Clear glaze. Be sure to apply some glaze on the back of your piece as well.
*For these imprints I used a leaf from our apple tree.
I added a flat jewelry bail to the back so they could be used as pendants.
