I’ve dried leaves and then cut fiber paper to the shape of the leaf to back it up and give it more depth. I have backed leaves with mold material– silica flour and pottery plaster– which allows me to re-shape the leaf and give it more depth. You can pour a mold for the leaf and then accentuate the details on the mold.
By “thickening” the leaf, the glass above it thins out some to reveal a bit more texture.
