Leaf Printing

Paint one side of the leaf. The imprint will show up better if you paint the bottom side of the leaf where the veins stick out more. paint your leaf
press your leaf Put newspaper under the fabric or between the fabric layers if you're painting on a t-shirt. Lay the painted leaf on the fabric (cotton works well) or paper and apply equal pressure to all parts of the leaf. This method is called pressure printing. With a little practice you'll discover how hard to press the leaf and how much paint to apply.
A rolling pin sometimes makes this process easier. A closet rod, cut into 12 inch lengths makes an inexpensive set of rolling pins. You can also use a caress printing technique. Lay your printed leaf down, paint side up, and lay the material to be printed on top of the leaf. In one motion firmly press down on the material and leaf. roll over your leaf
