Botanical Printing - Part 2 - Capturing the Autumn Colors

Posted on October 4, 2015 at 4:54 PM

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
            - Albert Camus

Once you've learned the simple technique of botanical printing, you can move on to some experimentation.





NOTE: 
Look to the post, Botanical Printing  - Part 1, in the category, 
Mini Masterpieces, for the detailed directions of botanical printing.
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

To celebrate Autumn, squeeze out a bit of acrylic paint in the season's colors onto a coated paper plate.

You can use any number of shades. I applied brown, orange, red, yellow and green.



xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


With a small sponge, dab the colors onto the vein side of the leaf, in  a random order.

Make sure to cover the whole leaf, but do not apply the paint heavily. 














xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

As explained in Part 1, gently place the leaf, paint side down onto a sheet of white paper. Cover with a catalog page. Press and smooth over the entire leaf.   
Lift the page and leaf . You then have........




The Finished Product - A beautiful fall leaf botanical print!
