Red Maple Leaf Salt Dough Ornament
A beauty that won't blow away with winter's winds!
This classic autumn leaf is hand cut and painted, a red maple leaf ornament with realistic splatters of gold, brown, grey and black for a realistic and lovely effect.
Each leaf is one of a kind (OOAK) the one you see pictured in the listing is the leaf you will receive.
A gorgeous, detailed shape, these OOAK leaves are handcrafted and hand painted using watercolor techniques in autumn hues of red, orange, gold, green and brown. Finally sealed with a coat of varnish and fitted with a black wire hanger.
Perfect for your kitchen, cubicle or Christmas tree.
Your leaf ornament comes cello wrapped with "care" and hang brand tag included.
Maple leaf is large compared to the other leaves in my shop. Large enough to be seen on a shelf, kitchen knob or cubicle wall.
Measures 4 1/2" tall and 4" wide.
If you're unfamiliar with salt dough, it's a craft that's been around since Colonial times.
All the ornaments you see in my shop are made by me, the same way as our mothers and grandmothers who dabbled in salt dough, without any mechanical devices, completely by hand.
Flour, salt and water is combined, shapes are cut out and dried completely until each piece is as hard as a piece of pottery. All ornaments are then sanded to smooth the edges, hand painted with passion and care and finished with a black wire hanger.
