Leaves printing workshop with Mitsuru koga at Tortoise



we went hunting for leaves which we thought we were going to do leaf cutouts but actually we were printing with leaves and not cutting them.

Koga san demostrated how to print with leaves.






These are the envelopes he made with the leaves printed paper. He let us pick one as a gift from him. Sweet! His prints are so delicate and so nice. It captures the most beautiful grain and texture of leaves.






These are the ones I made, and I love the ones with grass.




In tortoise you still can see some of the sea stone vase and sculptures by Koga san. The are so fine!

it's not that difficult, we just used stamp ink pad. but some leaves are harder to print, depends on the shapes, thickness and the wax on their surface.........
