      How-to: Hammered flower and leaf prints Get out the hammer, it's how-to Tuesday and we have some botanical prints to make!

    • Darrell Undery

      Hammered flower and leaf prints: Lay desired plant part on watercolor paper, put a paper towel on top, hammer the plant until the impression is clearly visible on the paper towel, peel off the plant part from the watercolor paper. Works best when using multiple types of hammers, including ball-peen and cross-peen. Acrylic finishing spray will keep colors vivid for longer.
