Anyone can discover the excitement of creating works of art by applying ink or paint directly to leaves, flowers, herbs, and fruits, and pressing life- sized images onto paper, fabric, and other surfaces. Nature printing is a direct, inexpensive technique requiring no artistic experience and offering possibilities as boundless as your imagination and as varied as nature itself. Artist Laura Donnelly Bethmann provides complete step-by-step instructions, illustrated by her own finished works and those of nature printers through the ages.
