Sprites – Leaf Prints

Contributor Unknown

Leaf prints are so easy to make and the results can be stunning.

First, you will want to experiment with all the leaves available to you.

Gather both plant and tree leaves. Oak and maple are perfect for this project.Make sure there is no dirt on the leaves. Bring the leaves to your work area. Paint one side of the leaves and then press leaves onto paper or canvas.

You can use acrylics, tempera, block printing ink or a thick fabric paint. Watercolours never worked well for me.
