Sculpey Clay Leaf

Baking Sheet
Clay Tools
Cup of Water
Oven or Toaster Oven

Parchment Paper
Sculpey Clay
Spray Acrylic Sealer

Cover your work space with parchment paper.

Condition the clay by kneading until it is soft and smooth.

Roll the clay out flat to about 1/8th to 1/4th inch thick.

Place the leaf on the clay sheet and press the leaf into the clay to make the leaf impression.  I used the clay roller.

Cut the leaf impression out with the clay knife.

Carefully remove the leaf from the clay.

Smooth the edges of the clay leaf with a wet finger.

Place the design on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Tip:  To make a curled leaf, put the leaf in a parchment lined baking dish.

Bake at 275 degrees for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch clay thickness. Do not over bake.

Allow to cool.

Seal both sides with clear acrylic spray or Mod Podge.

Your leaf is ready to be displayed.
