3In a plastic container with high sides pour the plaster. It is necessary to gradually add water to the gypsum and gently stir with a wooden stick. In the end, you need a solution that can be poured into another container, but it should not be too liquid (its thickness should be approximately as sour cream). The mass should be enough to completely cover the bottom of the container in which the leaves are laid out.

4. After that, you need to quickly pour the solution into a plastic container with low sides (which leaves are laid out). The gypsum mass begins to thicken very quickly. On top immediately put the prepared lace. You need to put so that the nodules are plunged into plaster, and the lace itself remains free. The result will be a loop for which you can then hang our picture on the wall.

6. Wait until the gypsum has completely solidified. You need to wait at least half an hour. When the plaster hardens, you need to remove the picture from the plastic container. To do this, slightly bend the walls with your fingers, pull the string, and the picture will easily come out of the plastic container.

By the same principle, you can make a magnet on the refrigerator - take a small round, oval or square container (for example, from under the yogurt), and instead of a lace, press the magnet until the plaster is still frozen. The drawing can be made not only from leaves, but also from seashells, buttons, small sea stones and any other convex objects.
