I am new to leaf casting and so far mine are only plain. I have seen some nicely painted ones.

? Do you use a metallic paint? Any tips would be great! Thanks

I also haven't done it but Little and Lewis first showed folks how something like 20 years ago on the Martha Stewart show - they use watered down exterior house paint. https://www.marthastewart.com/... They're returned to her show a few times and there are videos https://www.marthastewart.com/...
Remember, it is dangerous to the environment and ILLEGAL in MANY states to mail plants/bulbs/cuttings in. Let’s all practice Do No Harm while we walk this earth and find other ways to connect to one another through gardening.
