Project: Oil Pastel Hand Coloured Leaves

You only need two things for this leaf art-leaves and oil pastels.

To press leaves for this project just gather up a few leaves and lay them between pages of a magazine or book. Make sure it’s not a precious book because the moisture in the leaf can sometimes cause some wrinkling of book pages that does not go away. Leave them there for a day or two until they’re nice and flat but not completely dried up and brittle.

The best oil pastels

You’ll also need oil pastels. Oil pastels are a little softer than a typical wax oil pastel. That makes it easier to deposit the pigment onto the leaf.
