Re: 30" rice paper leaf

Hi Tricia,

Did you reinforce the leaf with any kind of mesh, either fiberglas or metal
screen?  If not, that's probably the answer to your question.  Someone asked
a while back about plastic reinforcement as opposed to chicken wire, I have
used the plastic mesh you use for pond cover and for bird proofing your
fruit trees in some projects(not leaves) with some success.  It's not
expensive and readily available.
