ANd I thought I should show you where I went with it.

1.After I divided the PC into squares I laid out the leaves by the "Inductive Layout " method in consistent lattice crossing angle, and then I drew in the scrolls and started cutting holes for stems and leaves.
2. Then I applied the stems, and started measuring, transfering and cutting leaves.
3. Next I added more leaves, burnished them until flat.
4. then I etched the Damas with nitric acid
5, A,B, and C,This looks pretty good, but needs a little something. . . .
6. Into the salts, for a little blackin. . .
7. AHHH smells like my great Aunts home cooking, she was an anarchist you know. . .
8. Looks pretty sweeet. . . .
