Fern Impression Tin


This altoid tin uses a technique from Mike Beussler, where he uses masking and Pearlex mica powder for leaf impressions. Basically I took a sheet of green clay and laid the fern on it, pressing it down well. Then I took an oval template that I had and laid it over the leaf as a stencil. I used pearl Pearlex to fill in the oval shape. Then I removed the template and carefully filled in around the oval with gold Pearlex powder. I shook off any extra Pearlex and then removed the fern, leaving the green impression.

I baked the fern impression and then used it as part of the lid for covering the altoid tin.
