How are these concrete leaf casting made?

HOW ARE THESE MADE? The process begins with the selection of a leaf to be cast. A mold for the leaf is formed from a pile of wet sand. The leaf is placed over the sand with the veins up. Concrete is mixed and pressed over the entire leaf. After the concrete has dried, the leaf is removed and the vein impression remains. The unveiling of the casting is always an exciting moment. The leaf used is then discarded, only one casting can be made from a leaf.
It is then allowed to cured, "cleaned up", painted and sealed with concrete sealer.

    My Dad was a bricklayer by trade and he is the one who taught me how to mix "mud" from a very early age. I also love to garden, so combining these 2 seemed like the perfect match for me. I truly enjoy making them.
