My hubby goes to Dallas for a week every month for his job.
The last time he was there I made him pick some magnolia leaves for me and bring them home (love that guy!).
I just HAD to paint some after seeing these gorgeous leaves (on Pinterest of course — I seriously need some intervention) and I remembered, from when we lived there, how big and beautiful those magnolia leaves are.
These leaves are about 2 weeks old and I am waiting to see how they dry with paint on them. I was thinking I might try applying cold or hot wax to one or two to see what happens. I also thought it would be great to marbleize and/or paint them with the kids! They would really get a kick out of that! I have lots more leaves to play with, some are currently pressed in heavy book pages.
Anyone have any experience with this they’d like to share? I’d love to hear about it!
