A4 or A3 cartidge was used.

A wash of one colour of Sun Dye was brushed all over the chosen sheet.

This wash and the next wash must be kept as wet as possible.

A mixture of different leaves was then placed over the first wash. The finer leaves work better.They can be as fine
as Japanese Maple, which worked very well indeed.

Another colour was then chosen and dobbed all around the edge of these leaves.

This was immediately placed in the sun and left until dried.
