FAQ/Answer

How many coats does it take to coat a leaf, and why does the leaf curl when I am painting it?

This is one of the hardest questions to answer without being in a classroom. It depends on the size of the leaf, the structure of the leaf's vein, the end use of the fired leaf, and how thick your paste is.

Your first few coats are vital to your project. The paste should be air-dried for the first coats, because if the leaf dries out before you get enough paste on it to weigh it down, the leaf will curl. Even when air drying, don't let too much time go by before adding the next coat, or again your leaf will curl.
