Yellow Maple Leaf Salt Dough Ornament
Hand cut and painted, this salt dough leaf ornament is clear yellow, fading to a darker hue on one side. Leaf veins faintly show, not detracting from the beautiful yellow of this leaf. Coordinating autumn colors are splattered for a realistic effect.
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.
Each leaf is one of a kind (OOAK) the one you see pictured in the listing is the leaf you will receive.
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.
