Make a striking bowl and candle holder by way of portray a few palm leaves.
We have quite a set of palm timber growing inside the garden and this time of year they have got all flowered and feature fruit. I surprise at how rugged the leaves are, they seem to be indestructible. For instance, I had been submerging a massive leaf in a bath of water for the past 3 days within the vain the hope that it’s going to soften in order that I can reduce it. No such good fortune, some thing component isn’t absolutely submerged merely dries out once more. They defy technological know-how!
So, as a part of my modern palm leaf challenge I actually have resorted to the usage of extra manageably sized ones. These paintings genuinely well as bowls and mini sculptures because they preserve their structure.
This is the form of palm they’re from – I don’t know what type precisely however its no longer a big one.
And these are the sort of leaves I imply, with toothbrush as length reference. Someone will probable factor out that they may be no longer leaves at all but a part of the fruit or flower. For the sake of hygiene I selected ones that had not been laying on the floor for too long or had any evidence of animal pastime round them.
Some needed trimming with garden shears.
Next I lay them in water and bleach for 10 minutes or so, scrubbed them easy with an old toothbrush, then rinsed them with clean water and laid them out to dry.
In my expertise I determined to spray paint them so went thru the complete rigmarole of protecting sections. In retrospect it might have been lots less complicated to just paste a strip of covering tape and paint with a brush and chalk paint.
I used Krylon Chalky Finish in Anvil Grey. Some of the leaves have been so stained that I painted the whole lot instead of leaving a number of the herbal coloration.
Then I used correction fluid to attract dots on clearly as it become at hand. Initially I used the little sponge applicator that includes the bottle but observed it’s miles an awful lot easier to use an ear bud (cue tip) as it offers a much neater dot so long as you maintain the nib tidy and the cottonwool underneath manipulate. I recommend using ear buds with bamboo sticks as these are greater environmentally pleasant. I’m positive you could also use acrylic paint or nail polish, or you may stick gemstones or stickers.
I was left with a quite collection of bowls.
Looking at the picture above you could see that now not all of the leaves have the identical form. This is in which you have to decide which might be less difficult to use as bowls and which would can be pasted upright. The one at the proper is higher as a bowl.
0 I used a glue gun to paste the rounded ones to pieces of scrap timber. They look a touch bit black and frightening in this photo however visible from all sides they’re very sculptural.
1 Here they’re getting used as a part of a tablescape.
