Materials List: Leaf Etchings to Model Leaf Structure

  • One large flat leaf (a large maple, oak, and beech leaves are best although any leaf with high veins on the underside will work)
  • Sheet of plain white paper large enough to cover the entirety of the leaf with additional room available to write in the margins (photocopy or printer paper)
  • Multicolored colored pencils with large graphite cores (mechanical pencils don’t work well)
