Leaf skeleton art - an Autumn project

Published on Mon Nov 9, 2020 by

Finding leaf skeletons in the woods out and about is fairly rare. I have a couple but thought I'd have a go and making some of my own.

Actually fairly simple. This was what I did. Dissolved one tablespoon of baking soda and one tablespoon of bicarbonate soda in a pan of water. Popped the leaves in and then boiled it and reduced to a simmer for about an hour and a half. Then carefully removed the leaves and gently used a small brush to remove the pulpy bits before setting to one side to completely dry.

I tried out several types of leaves - the best results were from waxy, shiny leaves. These are from a magnolia in Calderstones Park, not far from where I live.

He is always easy to work with, has a strong sense of what style is needed for each project and brings back results on deadline. He is skilled, experienced and understands visual language and lighting. Additionally, David often helps secure additional PR and media coverage."
