    Default Reusable leaf “stencils”

    I have been told these are available so one can texture sheet silver with the impression of a leaf by rolling through a mill. ?? Do any of you use these and if so where can they be obtained please.

    Hi David.
    If you just want the outlines, real leaves can be photocopied, adjusted in size and used as labels to cut around.

    To use in a mill, artificial leaves can be obtained from craft supplies here https://www.google.com/search?channe...ons+for+crafts

    Once cut out, they can be bent or twisted a little to give them more life.

    My leaf below, was cut out round a label, rolled with wires, temporarily superglued on for the veins and removed, and then lightly reticulated. The colour occurs when heated selectively after pickling. Dennis.
