I did this in a class one week ago. Choose flat not too fleshy leaves such as ivy, maple leaves, fern frond, etc. Place the leaf directly on the kiln shelf and cover w/clear glass. Fire. When completely cool carefully lift the glass straight up and turn leaf side up. Don’t touch or breathe on it or the image will blow away. Place a second piece of glass on top and fire once again. Make certain that the leaf doesn’t extend more than a 1/4 to the edges of the glass or the two pieces of glass will not seal. Good Luck.
