Easy Leaf Bowls
Learn how to make clay leaf bowls with leaf printing
Air Dry Clay
A large leaf
Roll the clay into 1/4? slabs using rolling pins
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.
Use the knife to trim around the leaf.
Smooth the rough edges with one finger and a bit of water.
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.
Dry for several days and then paint (or place in kiln if you have one)
