My process for adorning this wheel thrown bowl with leaf sprigs from @sprigginawesomestamps (which should be available around the 15th 😉): I let the sprigs firm up to the point where I can touch them without marring the surface, but they’re still bendy. Then, I use a paint brush to apply a generous layer of thin clay slip to the backs. No need to score them as long as you apply the slip heavily and press all the sprig edges down gently, yet firmly. Next, I use the same slip brush to apply slip to the edges to fill in any cracks around the sprig and brush the entire surface of the sprig with thin slip to smooth out any finger prints or rough spots, leaving a nice smooth surface. 👍🏽
