And first time lettuce.
I used a bit too much translucent clay on this lettuce but I do like a bit of transparency.
I know everyone has their own way of doing details on veggies but here is how I figured to do lettuce leaf detail pretty simply.
Fold and crumple a bit of tin foil making sure your crumples and folds are the size of the veining on the lettuce leaf.
Flatten the leaf a bit with your fingers using a fan like pattern then press onto the foil.
As you can see you get some great detail on the leaf, at this point just layer around a center ball or pressed ball and you will have a pretty detailed lettuce.
