4.  Note that some leaves will shrink when fired, especially longer, thinner leaves.

5.  Normally, only ash will remain from the fired leaf.  Occasionally, if the leaf is discolored or has a fungus, a color may also be left behind.

6.  If you want a more colorful appearance, soak a dried leaf in glass paint or enamels and then fuse.  It's also possible to soak the leaf in a solution of mica and a binder and then fire.
