Oh wow! I want to try this! I'm guessing you pressed the leaf first, but how did you get the leaf's colour to stay?
You have such beautiful work here!

:hug: Thank you very much:D
After I pick the leaves, I place them in between an old phone book, and leave them there for a few months...then all the moisture is absorbed... that's how they stay pressed and crisp...then I paint them, seal them in a plastic sheet:D
Note:they are very fragile to paint on, I've chipped many just as I was nearly finished:(...man that sucks...hehe
