In this class you will be painting a real leaf that has been electroformed (plated with metal). You will have your choice of painting a maple leaf, oak leaf or birch leaf. Once your leaf is painted and clear coated, you will add a decorative stone accent. Different stone and glass cabochons will be available for you to choose from. A leather cord necklace will be included with your completed piece of wearable art.
