Leaf prints: Walking press

Whatever you weigh, it is enough to print on a walking press!

After you ink your leaves, just lay them face up, cover with printing paper and 2 thin fleece blankets, and walk over the blankets in your bare or stocking feet.   After 1 minute of walking, lift back the blankets and peel off the paper.  You have a walking press print!

This one measures 12 x 14 inches and the Asian characters read “Garden Mountain” or Wildacres, North Carolina, where I made this print.
