It’s time to put up some new art on those walls, and sometimes the best art can be found right in your backyard. Leaves and flowers have such unique shapes and gelatin prints are the fun and easy way to capture them. To start, all you need to do is go out and grab leaves, flowers and ferns that catch your eye. (Or get creative and find objects that simply have a cool silhouette.)

Try to find fairly flat objects that aren’t sharp, as they will make it more difficult to press and can also cut into the gelatin. Also, feel free to experiment with colors or even use black-and white for a sharp clean contrast. Now to pick the wall it goes on!

Follow the guide below to create your own gelatin prints.
