Beautiful Pin. I really like the intricate detail in the leaves. It makes them so realistic. Your jewelry and buttons are all exquisite. I've long wanted to make buttons, but wasn't sure of the medium. Now I know . I most certainly will have to take your class.

This is glorious. Is syringe clay like slip? Could you have achieved this using joining using slip?

Hi Akua - I used syringe clay to make the little lines down the center of the leaves. There are a couple of tiny balls at the base of the leaves that are scraps of clay I balled up. When constructing it I painted and fired the leaves first, and then joined it together with an oil paste. You can buy that premade or make your own with essential oil and clay. It's a little thicker than what you paint on the leaves, and the oil helps it be strong.
