I did this for a recent swap. I used sculpy brown, rolled it out and cut out the leaf shape. Then I built out the face. I used a gold pigment powder to brush on it to give it a bronzey type finish. While baking, I used quite a few tin foil balls underneath it to shape it, so the face is pushed out and some of the corners of the leaf are bent. I'd love feedback, this is my first one and I'm thinking of making a few for a wall cluster!

I think he came out great!
A wall cluster would be nice, in different shades of green or maybe autumnal (I love that word Grin) colors.
How big is he?

Here's my feedback for you, its AWESOME!  I totally and completely love this and I think it would be awesome to have hanging on a wall in my own home.  Great work!  And I agree with LunaKitten - a wall cluster would be great in a combination of greens/oranges/browns/reds.

Thanks guys! I was thinking about doing them in the autumnal colors! I'm redoing our attic into a loft and the living area that is going into it I want done in a tree decor, so I thought some of these guys would be perfect. He is about 4 1/2 inches high. Smiley

He'd be a cool pendant too, maybe a smaller version. Great job, update us with the rest.  Smiley

OOO Thanks for the great idea!! I will try it in a smaller size, I agree he'd be a bit ostentatious hanging from your neck at that size!

You'll have to post if you make one I'd love to see it!
