Flower Petal Printing
What you’ll need: flowers, paper, wax paper, and a pounding object (tree cookie or small stone).
Arrange the flower petals on the paper.
Lay a piece of wax paper over the petals and gently pound with your "hammer". The longer you pound the more color will be imprinted onto your paper!
Carefully remove the wax paper and brush off the remaining petals, revealing the colors and shapes left behind by the flowers.
Here’s a fun way to capture some of that wondrous splash of color from your flower garden on paper. Experiment with different flowers and leaves. We found that marigolds and parsley made the most vibrant colors.
