Step 5. Make a script on a leaf.

If you are using a pattern of leaf instead of a real leaf than take a knife and make a script so that leaf looks like a real one. However, if you are using a real leaf, than you can skip this step as you it leave a stamp by itself by pushing it to a clay on the 2nd step.

Take a small bowl, wrap it with a cling film and place your lead in it. A bowl will give a nice shape to your leaf.
