This was a piece of copper that I prepared for an enamelling class. After cutting out the basic leaf shape, I fold formed the center of the leaf. I then opened it back up and raised it a bit to give it some dimension. Finally, I formed the tiny spiculum for the stem. I love doing spiculums, more on that later.
During class, I used multiple firings of various transparent enamel colors to give it depth. I over fired it slightly to give a weathered look.
