Glazing Leaves to Make Candy Bowls

I have a tree with very large leaves that I would like to put some kind of a glaze on. Then they could then be used as candy bowls or such things. I hope you can help me. Thanks

Years ago we use to put glycerin on leaves to preserve them. This made them soft.

We used to paint them with one of Alene's glues (check your local craft store) then lay them over something to provide a shape and let them dry. Nothing more needs to be done if you have wrapped candy in it. Sounds like a fun project!

Yes Alene has a product called porcelain "something or other" I have used it on silk flowers, but not on real leaves but it is worth a try.
