A Study of Leaf Prints on Paper Tutorial
Intrigued with the leaf print on paper process and want to know more? This PDF tutorial is available for immediate download, and is a follow-up to "An Introduction to Leaf Prints on Paper." It documents the results of 40 contact leaf print tests examining the effects that 15 variables have on the prints. Each test is fully illustrated with photographs of the leaf prints, so you can see the results for yourself.
The variables tested are methods of printing, types of water, types and brands of paper, nine natural and safe mordants (not powdered mordants), and the wait time before opening the leaf print bundle. Each variable was tested individually so you can see the effects and make better decisions when combining variables for your prints.
The tutorial assumes that you have a working knowledge of the leaf prints on paper process. If you aren’t familiar with it, you might want to read my first tutorial that explains the process, “An Introduction to Leaf Prints on Paper.”
