Autumn Leaf Prints Project

Artists use real leaves, high-quality acrylic paints, and gorgeous, thick paper to make one-of-a-kind impressions straight from nature.

Materials needed: real leaves (still fresh and bendable, not dried; thin and flexible leaves that can lay flat such as maple are best; avoid overly thick or curled leaves such as holly), acrylic paint, brushes or sponge brushes, paint palette. Optional: collage papers.
