- fresh leaves: don't use dry leaves as the color won't transfer;
- muslin cloth (I purchased the $1.97 per yard, you don't need a high quality one, but depending on what you'd like to use the material for, you may want the thicker kind;
- packing tape; (and regular tape just to place the leaves)
- a pencil
- wax paper or something underneath the material because the color will bleed through onto the surface
You can lift up the tape to take a peak, which allows you to see if you missed any spots.
In some cases, no matter how much pressure you put on, the color will not transfer.
Below you can see that I layered four leaves. A very light yellow one barely showed any transfer, so I then added a green leaf right over the muslin. Once I was done with the design, I simply folded the top of the muslin over a stick and used simple white glue to secure it.
