How to Make

  2. Cut around the templates.
  3. Temporarily stick your templates to the canvas board with sticky tac.
  4. Fill a fine mist bottle with a few squirts of red paint and water. The more paint you add to the bottle the bolder and brighter the colour.
  5. Shake the fine mist bottle until the paint and water mixture is combined with no lumps. Repeat for all 4 colours.
  6. Spray the paint and water mixture onto the canvas, the canvas underneath the leaf templates will be protected.
  7. When the paint is dry peel off the leaf templates to reveal the leaf shapes underneath.
  8. Hang your beautiful, autumnal painting in your home.
