Plaster Leaf Prints. Lay down newspaper. Plaster of Paris, 2 parts plaster 1 part water, mix to yogurt consistency, pour onto burlap. Lightly press leaves vein side down for 10-15 min (if leaf is thin, coat with vaseline to prevent tearing when removing). Remove leaves. Coat with mod podge before painting (plaster absorbs paint).

Apologia Botany - Creative Nature Display: forget turning the leaves into people or animals, this design would be a lovely way to display a collection from a nature walk. I like the stick frame and the cards hanging down. Would be creative as a fall leaf collection or a pressed flower arrangement. Project appropriate for Apologia Botany.
