Supplies to Paint Autumn Leaves

How to Blend Acrylic Paint on Rocks
I will give you a quick run down if you just need a few tips. There is also a full-length tutorial below to see the whole process start to finish!
Start by placing your leaf shape down in white. Let it dry completely before getting started. This really helps the colors pop. Place down a layer of each color first. Do not worry about blending at this point. Then work with a dabbing motion using the red paint a little more towards the center.
Next, with the orange on the brush dab along the same line. You will create a nice medium tone on your brush. Continue this until you are happy with your the blend of your leaves. When the leaves were dry I lined in gold and added blessed to the edge on some of them.
