These are easy peasy - a ball of Fimo, a leaf on top then squiiiiiiish with the base of a glass and bake them. The detail is amazing. and it's fun to see features you don't always notice on the leaf itself:
something I can't remember (slapped wrist - what kind of scientist doesn't label experiments?!)
We started off making flat discs that I thought could live on our nature table, but they were quite chunky, and the girls insisted on making rather a lot of them, so genius Mr Dottycookie came up with the idea of making them into a mobile. I'm afraid I left them to it - there were some very firm ideas flying about and my idea of tying the blobs to branches was absolutely not was what required; bamboo, hacksaws and string were far more appealing. He was so pleased with the way it turned out that he made a hole in their ceiling for a hook and takes great pleasure in twirling it around for them at bedtime like one of those roundabouts with swings hanging from it.
I love it too!
