I have a friend who I've never met in person, but we chat a lot on Internet :) I really feel that we are close and know a lot about each other just because those online chats... Her name is Svetlana from NESWeddingGarden. We like to share our craft ideas, give advises to each other, and generally chat about anything in our lives :) Recently, Svetlana shared a tutorial how to make leaves of polymer clay and how to use them in craft.

    To make these leaves, next are needed:
  • Polymer clay fall or summer leaves colors (or mixed)
  • A roller
  • Texture mat (canvas sheet is used in this tutorial)
  • Leaf cutter (set of 3 veined rose leaf plunger cutters are used in this tutorial)
Keen the polymer clay until it's soft, and roll it to a sheet approximately 2 mm thick. Place it on the texture mat and roll a little bit again. Just to make a nice texture on the back of the leaves.
