Product Description

Green Stuff World Miniature Leaf Punch DARK GREEN - Linden

Linden Leaves Only

Miniature Leaf Punch perfect to create miniature leaves compatible with 75mm120mm1:16th scale. You can use various types of paper and other materials. This punch will make 3 types of LINDEN leaves.

We recommend using dried leaves in different colors. Natural leaves need to be treated to keep the colors. There are many techniques to achieve this effortlessly. They may be also painted.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Search for fallen natural leaves in the park next to your house.
2. Let them dry inside a book to keep the colors -  - this CAN stain the pages.
3. Punch the natural leaves.
4. Use PVA glue to fix the leaves to your diorama.

Blade can be sharpened by punching through aluminum foil or lubricated by punching through waxed paper.

*This method takes a bit more time but is also very effective.

 

Choose bright colored leaves. If the leaves have a thick center branch you can crush it with a hammer.

You will need vegetable glycerin which can be purchased in supermarkets or craft stores. 

Mix 1 ounce of liquid vegetable glycerine with 7 ounces of water in a container.

Place the leaves into the mixture and let stand for 3-5 days - if the leaves float use a plate to keep them down.

The leaves will retain their bright color forever!

I have also used hairspray - just give a heavy spray and leave overnight to dry.
