Marbling leaves for Thanksgiving

(Warning: I'm addicted to marbling medium!)
I spent the weekend testing this medium in different ideas to be able to create at the same time a concept that I could bring to my children's workshops as well as a suggestion of a Thanksgiving craft with a purpose.

These maple leaves are perfect for creating with your children a decoration for Thanksgiving as well as an art abandonment!

And, well, very easy to do!

First and important thing: lay out parchment over your work surface to to prevent overspill.

I chose orange, gold and silver acrylic paint. Use one disposable cup for each color. Pour equal amounts of Testors Marbling Medium and an acrylic paint color into each one of the cups. Use a stick to stir each color.
Pour the mixtures, one at a time, onto the wooden leaves, doing random swirls.

Keep tilting the leaves to spread the paint until the desired effect is achieved. Use a disposable glove, especially if crafting with kids.

Let it dry for at least two hours and then use the black Posca to write down a positive message on each leaf.
