Concrete Leaf Casting

Have you done a concrete leaf casting?  They are so cool-looking and realistic!  Mom made some with the grandkids for each of us for Mother's Day this year.  She also painted them to look like real leaves.  Mine still needs to be sealed if I'm going to leave it outside.  But I think it could be a nice piece of indoor sculpture. 

Check out my leaf below:

Here are a few more pics.

Mom said it was pretty easy!  Here are a couple more that mom did:
