I picked up some of these at AMPSEast last year. And they a re beautiful. I have not tried water but what I did was put them on a soft pad, 8000 micro mesh sanding pad in this case, and took a #2 crochet needle I use for burnishing and rub the point around in a tiny circle. The smallest in this pic is 1.5 mm and the largest 3mm. These are the Cherry leaves.

I'm with you there, Brad, I've had my eyes on these for awhile now. Just adding a few to an AFV would bring it right to life!

Question, Jeff.......since these are made of paper(?), if a little moisture were applied would they curl up? Could get a nice 3-D look if they do. Thanks for the review Jeff

Thanks Jeff and James
I have seen these in their catalogue and always wondered on the value for money. They do look good, and I have to say for a vignette or small coverage area, they are definitely value for money...
