Fossil branch hand cast plate.

Fossil branch hand cast plate.
This is not two different plates, but the same plate painted, then re-painted in a different colour. It has actually changed colours again since I took these photos. It is what I like to call a ... Fossil Cast Plate. It was cas in a mold made from a piece of backing board, some nails to mark out the circle. A piece of scrap formica place inside the nails to form a circle, and an upturned plastic platter of some sort (it's been a long time ... I can't remember what I actually used.
The branches that formed the "fossils" came from a lemon tree, and the fruit looking parts of the design were slices of green lemon.
