Diy Tutorial Leaf Bowl




About: Hello, my name is Aniela and I want to warmly welcome you %(^-^)%. I love widely understood DIY. I hope my tutorials will help you making your life better and funnier.

I have many little things at home, I think most of us have ... I used to put them in strange places and forgot about them.
I lost a lot of time for looking for for example keys, but not any more, my rhubarb's bowl is perfect place for all those needed but also very easy to lose things.

You need:

  1. Leaves with marked ''veins'' for example rhubarb leaves ;-) big or small one , you decide

    We want to make leaf bowls. May we have the recipe for 'cold porcelain clay', please? My sons and I have our leaves and now we need to get going on this project we've never tried before.

    Thank you!

    Nice project! I will have to go leaf hunting. I think I will make one for each season (color wise) Thank you for the post! What type of air dry clay did you use?
