Some of the leaves I left natural. Some I painted with USArtQuest Perfect Pigment Acrylic paints. I worked on a craft mat to paint the leaves. I used a fairly wet brush, and this thinned the paint just enough for good coverage without clogging the delicate structures of the leaves. I only used two drops of paint for five leaves!!

Easy, peasy!! And a beautiful, handmade decoration. I'm thinking these would make outstanding package toppers or a card embellishment.
