Pressed flower art

Pressing flowers makes them appear flat, and there is often a change in colour, ranging from faded colours to a greater intensity of vibrant colours. The pressed flowers and leaves can be used in a variety of craft projects.

They are often mounted on special paper, such as handmade paper, Ingres paper, Japanese paper, or paper decorated by Marbling.

Each leaf and flower is glued onto a precise location. With a creative approach to the use of materials, a leaf becomes a tree and petals form mountains.

Washes of watercolour painting are sometimes applied to the backing paper before the pressed material is attached. Pressed material may also be mounted on fabrics, such as velvet, silk, linen or cotton.
