    A printable pdf poster of some of the world's most spectacular slime molds + two mini greeting cards, PLUS a very unique Concreation! These are special-edition collaborations between me and my mom, Constance. She makes beautiful castings of real leaves using high-strength concrete. Each leaf is cured, hand-painted and sealed with a durable polyrethane coat - and, in this case, topped with a few delicate weatherproof clay fruiting bodies. A perfect resting spot for a tea-candle or a yet-to-be-shelved specimen. You can also request one with a ribbon attached to be used as a Christmas ornament. Each leaf is approximately 4'' long.
