Thanks Jeff and James
I have seen these in their catalogue and always wondered on the value for money. They do look good, and I have to say for a vignette or small coverage area, they are definitely value for money...

I'm with you there, Brad, I've had my eyes on these for awhile now. Just adding a few to an AFV would bring it right to life!

Question, Jeff.......since these are made of paper(?), if a little moisture were applied would they curl up? Could get a nice 3-D look if they do. Thanks for the review Jeff

I picked up some of these at AMPSEast last year. And they a re beautiful. I have not tried water but what I did was put them on a soft pad, 8000 micro mesh sanding pad in this case, and took a #2 crochet needle I use for burnishing and rub the point around in a tiny circle. The smallest in this pic is 1.5 mm and the largest 3mm. These are the Cherry leaves.
