Step 1: Hunt for leaves

  • Before you start creating, you’ll need a mix of leaves. Try and find different sizes and shapes. This will help you create interesting and unusual designs.

Step 2: Painting your leaves

  • Make sure your leaves are clean and dry before painting.
  • Use your brush to add paint on the textured side and don’t add paint on too thickly as you won’t be able to see the detail.

Step 3: Start pressing

  • Gently pick up your painted leaves and place them on the paper, paint side down.
  • Push down gently and then peel them off, revealing your colourful print.
  • Keep repeating until you are happy with your design.
