If we are getting into leaves or paper cutouts this might be fun to try with a paper doily as well... Hmm you got my mind going.

try a long tray with a row of dancing long dress ladies across it.  cut the ladies hand to hand and foot to foot the way you fold paper and cut out sailors in a row.  sponge or brush or spray a background color, decorate each lady's dress differently and spray the final clear over it all.

John Britt's new book on mid range glazes has a way to do this (p.90) abriviated directions.....bisque ware, as second coat is just about dry place leaf, dry, re-bisque, when cool rub mixture 50/50 of EPK and titanium dioxide, rinse, glaze Fire.

A ton of info in this book, I plan on testing a number of the glazes presented, this looks like one of thos books that everyone will eventually have......well worth the money.

If you're looking for larger leaves with strong vein lines acanthis or hydrangea would work well.
