The brooch just arrived, kyratisation work on progress!
I tried first to make prints of the lone leaf with polymer clay, bake this "mould" in order to press polymer clay in it to get matching leaves...
Impossible to get them off the mould with all details without shattering... grrr!
So, only possibility was to cut two leaves in shape of the model, gild them with gold leaf before baking 15 minutes at 130 Celsius in the oven.
Will see if they are good enough to glue them in place...
To be continued :-)
Well... Gold (real!) leaf color is more warm yellow than the existing leaves... But, I can't do better :-/
