This is one of the most interesting techniques I've come across in a very long time. Heather figured out a way to turn leaves into skeletons of their former selves. Perfect for display in floating frames or making candle holders! Here's what she says we'll need to make them:
- washing soda, NOT baking soda
- leaves, waxy--like gardenia, magnolia and hydrangea--work best
- a large pot
- a small, blunt brush
- paper towels
- a spatula
